This is my first non buy or sell post here on POTN! I am currently using a 30D and looking to add something a little longer to my set up. I am on a bit of a budget so I will be buying used. I have read many 24-70 vs. 24-105 posts on here, but non compare the 24-105 to the 28-70.
With the 105 I do get a lot more on the telephoto end especially on the crop frame 30D, but eventually I plan on getting one of the 70-200s so that gap will go away. What are the benefits of each lens over the other?
It would be nice to have the IS, but I have never used a lens with IS so I don't really know what I'm missing. I know on the other hand the 2.8 will be faster in low light situations, but I normally stick with my nifty fifty in low light. Most of my shooting is done outdoors where f/4 would be plenty. On the other hand, I like the idea of a shallower DOF that is possible with the 2.8.
You can see how I am going back and forth. Any insight would be much appreciated.
