my checkbook is upset with me now.
You'll regret it
just kidding man
I wish I would have gotten IS when I bought my 70-200 F4
so you decided on the f4
no 2.8 no care
j/k mang, congrats, you'll love it
The only things I've ever heard about that lens are "OMFG I can't believe how sharp this thing is"
I'd probably opt for the 2.8 non-is, but that's just me (shoot a lot of sports)
try cleaning your camera
thanks, guys ... i figured i'll still be able to sell it for a hundred or two less in a year or so (if i want to move to the 2.8IS).
plus, this will fit in my bag much easier than the 2.8 will.
it was a tough choice ... only a $500 difference, and the 2.8 includes the tripod ring ($150) and a bag. oh well.
You won't need a tripod ring for the f4.
i love the tripod rings, i use it as a base when i shoot hand held
don't think it's heavy/long enough to really worry about it
that's what she said.
have you used the f4 before? They're a lot smaller and lighter in person that I originally thought. If you do need to do tripod work mounting through the body will work just fine. Hell, I've even mounted the 100-300 f4 through the body (and battery grip) without trouble.
I mount my F4 from the body no problem at all
i put my camera/grip with my 10-22 in my small timbuktu messenger bag, and there was at least 4-5" left, so it should fit mounted in there as well. should make for a nice carry bag.
i rented the 70-200 2.8IS once, and it's quite large. judging from the measurments on canon's site, the f4 should work out just fine.
40d + 580ex in the mail....
24-70 f/2.8 coming soon.
i just got my my 70-200 2.8 IS last night and i'm getting usable shots at 1/20, but you should have an advantage with the 4 stop IS
a lot of the reviews i've read say it's more like a 3.5 stop IS ... like canon artificially inflated the numbers just a bit.
won't know until i get it
