My DA 300mm just arrived...........

and it's a thing of beauty (hubala hubala)!

I'll admit that it was late and I will not have a chance to check her out until tomorrow (damn!).

I'll keep you posted.

I can't believe you are not staying up all night shooting indoor portraits of pets, toy soldiers and sleeping family members. It can easily focus across a normal sized room. Its sweet.

I just purchased the DA*300 myself. However, my 20d went away being repaired before the lens was delivered. It could be sometime being back.
Having the lens and not having a decent camera to put it on.....that is akin to water torture.

It's a terrific lens--combines beautifully with the AF 1.7x, too.
