Definitely an interesting challenge. Now you may be inspired to shoot more, lots of possibilities to explore.

Since the paper is touching the glass I would be VERY hesitant to remove it from the frame; the paper and/or ink my stick to the glass after that much time. Removing the glare from the glass may help readability and ease PP. To do that set the camera so that the sensor is parallel to the paper (use a tripod). Illuminate it with two identical lights, one on each side oriented at a 45 degree angle to the glass in an otherwise darkened room. Place polaroid sheets in front of the lights, both oriented at the same angle (you can check this be placing the polarizing material on top of each other and rotating them so that light passes through them and keeping them in that relative orientation). Place a polarizing filter over the lens and rotate it so that the glare off the glass is gone. To improve detail you may want to photograph it in overlapping sections (maintaining a constant distance from paper to camera) using manual exposure and then stitching them together as in a panorama. I hope I was clear enough. Let me know if you have any questions.

I leave mine on and nothing bad has happened.

Takes up more storage room but protects the lens. I've sprinkled lens caps liberally but not hoods. Carrying and using with hood on IMO is safest for the front element.

If you "pixel peek" enlarging your image to extreme detail thenthe "L" might be worth it but otherwise and if you just want good sharp images to view on typical TV or monitor the "L" would likely be overkill and you could use that extra $500 for another gift. In my opinion and experience, that is. I have and use the 300mm f/4 L and the 55-250 ef-s and each one has given me excellent images. I do pixel peek and can see a difference at 400% magnification but how often do I need that much crop/blow up? Nearly never.

Try taking the camera back to its default, by going to Menu, and then far right tab, then page 6 - Setting Reset - then Camera settings Reset. This will take the camera to its default settings, so anything you have set up on it before will have to be set up again.

Anotherview - thanks. Those pages seem to say that in terms a a reference standard i.e. a 35mm film frame, a crop sensor provides a perceived multiplication factor of 1.6 (in my case). However, in terms of any lens fitted to a camera, the lens just does what it is designed to do and there is no innate zoom but rather a crop factor sensor just picks up a portion of what a full frame camera would do. Is that correct??

Your perception is correct is my opinion.

All of the above. Plus the fungus critter can etch the class.

Beautiful!! Unique opportunity, I'd be out in it and back out of it in a couple of minutes! Great potential.

I also was afraid to increase ISO but finally experimented and found that with a bit of overexposure the noise was not as much of a factor as I had feared. Now the sky's the limit when needed. Up the ISO and get the shot, with a bit of extra exposure that is.

I will try that. I am reluctant to increase the ISO but it does make sense.

Hi Lee, assuming you didnt use a tripod and seeing you say they were at 300mm, my guess is you have a bit of camera shake affecting your samples.
Being a new lens and perhaps not being used to the extra weight and length, I think 1/125 and 1/200sec exposure is a bit brave.
Try 1/500th sec and work up from there, light permitting of course.
