I have uploaded some sample pictures to the Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6L IS USM Lens Review.
 
The weather and landscape have not been very outdoor-photo-friendly here recently, but I intend to use this lens a lot more this year - including on a couple of photo trips I have planned. So, I should have more (and more varied) sample pictures to share later.
 
Be sure to check out the comments and tips for each picture.

While it only supports 8.8 lbs, the Gitzo G1177M Ballhead (Adorama) is definitely a great deal at $24.90 shipped after mail-in rebate ($80 Visa card). Even if you only use it to mount a flash. Adorama says there are NO LIMITS on rebate quantities.
