i don't have one either...but if someone has a desire to move up from the STM lenses...where can they really go? at least the f2.8 zooms would give 2 stops difference at some point compared to the current zoom lenses
I know that f/2.8 zooms are very popular items to aspire to. Most of them are two stops faster for at least some part of the range. All well and good, if lugging a large, heavy, expensive, limited range zoom lens around with you ALL THE TIME works for you. I've tried them; they don't work for me. I use my 6D for most of my shooting (recreational hobbyist, nothing paid). My zooms are: Σ12-24, 17-40, 24-105 STM, 70-200 f4L IS, 100-400L. Sometimes I'd like more aperture than my zooms provide. I'd rather mount a fast prime when I need a large aperture than lug around an f/2.8 zoom all the time, just so I can have access to a middle of the road aperture.
On the 80D, I am usually doing outdoor daytime sports/athletics (70-200) which does not require f/2.8, or I am indoors working with flash, shooting at f/5.6 to f/8 (18-55).
I've had 3 (11-20, 24-70, 70-200) f/2.8 zooms. They just didn't work for me.
