Lens is as advertised! Great color even in low lights, super fast focus. I didn't want to return it! Shot these at the Sacramento Republic FC game Saturday night and the River Cats-Albuquerque game at Raley Field on Sunday.

I'm not much of a sports photography fan, but these images are gorgeous. As one who appreciates sharp focus, I laud you on an excellent job.

That is an awesome lens. Try it with the Mark III doubler and it's 600mm with very minor degradation.

yes, it was tough to give up. Amazing quality in all types of light. The first version of that lens is supposed to be very good as well, and a lot cheaper

Thanks everyone. I would recommend the lens, if you can afford it! I can't, unfortunately . . .

Using a Canon 7D Mark II. Some PP for noise, exposure and sharpening, but nothing major.

This Canon 300mm f/2.8 prime is a proven lens in its own class. Known for action shots. The proof is in the pudding. Great shots.
