  1. Yay! A good day for me, just ordered my ai-s nikon 300mm 2.8 with hood, and case from eBay today. I will post pictures as soon as it arrives, this is my first super telephoto lens, I can't wait.

    Out of couriousity, what'd ya pay for it? I shoot with a 300/4 and always wonder what shooting with the Big Daddy would be like... even in MF. I've found with this lens that it's all about the TCs...

  5. Way to go Daniel!
    This is an awesome lens. I had one for a good while and loved it!
    I hope to see some of your images with it.
  6. Thanks a lot, sorry I haven't gotten around to posting some images, i've been out every day I can to shoot, it's such a different experience using fast glass. Here's some pictures of my 300;
    Canon PowerShot A520    ---    12mm    f/3.5    1/60s   

    Canon PowerShot A520    ---    12mm    f/3.5    1/60s   

    Canon PowerShot A520    ---    10mm    f/3.2    1/60s   

    Canon PowerShot A520    ---    23mm    f/5.5    1/60s   

    Canon PowerShot A520    ---    6mm    f/2.6    1/60s   

    It's really in quite good condition, the external hood has just taken a bulk of the beating (that's why it's there after all). Using a monopod or tripod helps so much when using this lens too, I really enjoy my 681b. I paid 725 us dollars, a very good deal with the included case and hood. But i'm going out to shoot some hummingbirds, peace.
