I have rented the latest version of the Canon 300mm 2.8 lens. I love it -- pretty much the best lens I've ever used -- but can't afford or justify its $6,000 price tag. So I started looking at the earlier versions, and decided to grab a nice copy of the first version which doesn't have IS for about a fourth of what the latest would cost. I've only been able to use it a couple of times, but am impressed with the results so far.
