I am getting a Canon 40D and 50mm f1.8 lens for christmas and in April will have around 500 to get a new lens and because I want to shoot planes and wildlife I want a Telephoto lens and I am either considering the 70-300mm f4 IS or the 70-200mm f4L no IS. My main question is does the 70-300mm produce good images and would I need the extra 100mm?

my 70-300 lens images at 300mm - (birds and squirrels) here :- - judge for yourself

200 may be a bit short for wildlife and autofocus may be unreliable when using a 2x teleconverter with an f4 lens
