    I've seen some shots from the DSLRs with EF 75-300 lenses that are
    dissapointing. It seems the smaller sensor area in these cameras demand more
    image quality from the lens. I've owned the zoom with film cameras and I'm
    aware of it's short comings over 200mm wide open. Stopping down isn't always

    How's the Canon 70-200f/4 do wide open in digital use?
    What about the 100-300L or non L version?

    I don't have any experiences with those particular lenses, but I do have
    a 300mm f4L IS, and it is so much sharper than the 75-300mm IS zoom. I
    bought a Tamron 2x teleconverter for the zoom, and it turns out that the
    TC can bring in no more detail than the zoom by itself at 300mm. It's
    like an analog form of digital zoom. The 300mm L prime is so sharp that
    I can use either that TC or the Canon 1.4x TC, and it is still sharper
    than the zoom at 300mm. This is even true, believe it or not, with the
    two TCs stacked (unless the zoom is stopped way down).
