I'm not so good on lens advice but thought i'd say Hi and welcome.

Welcome to the Madhouse Bill, I'm sure you will enjoy. Not a Canon user myself so no advice on your 300 zoom - I'm sure someone will be along soon.

Best wishes and enjoy, Stuart

Hi Bill, another Pompey Boy here. Grew up in Copnor and moved to Milton when I married. Now living in Milton Keynes (for my sins) and missing life by the sea!
If you're looking for a good zoom up to the 300mm mark I can heartily recommend the Canon EF 70-300mm f/4.0-5.6 IS USM Lens It's not particularly fast to focus but is a good workhorse lens.
