    This is where my new monies will be spent... Selling the 30d, 70-200 2.8, and some lights to support this new kit...

    New kit will be:

    2x 40d with grips
    11-16 2.8 (when it becomes more readily available)
    20 1.8
    30 1.4
    18-50 2.8 Macro
    50-150 2.8 on its way
    120-300 2.8 NON DG on its way
    1.4 and 2. TC's

    I kinda want to add a 85 1.8 in there. sometime too. and a new fucking pelican. the 1514 no longer cuts it.


    PS: In hindsight i wish i would have just saved all my money to begin with and i would have saved a butt load.

    I have had and sold 2x 30ds, 10-22, 10-20, 2x 20 1.8, 1 35L, 1 35 f2, 1 50 1.8, 1 50 1.4, 1 17-55is, 1 70-200 2.8, 1 28-75, and a 430ex. FUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I sure as shit hopes this lasts me awhile. For celeb work, portrait, event, and sports i think it will.

    I was too afraid to throw down the money on the 120-300. I hope it works for you.

    Ive had nothing but problems with Sigma lenses and The Digital Picture shows the 120-300 to be nowhere close to the 300/2.8

    I know a lot of people like the 120-300 though so I hope you get it and enjoy it.

    Only negative coments I hear about the 120-300 is that it's not par-focal. That means if somebody is running towards (or away) from you and you're snapping shots in AI servo while zooming in or out the lens has to do a lot of refocusing. A number of photographers say that in this situation the lens can't keep up.

    Sharpness can be extremely good, but I hear there are some bad copies out there.

    yeah i can understand that if you have had problems before. I personally have only had one real issue. back focusing on my 30 1.4. sent it back 6 days later, and it became the lens i will never sell.
