With the recent price increases due to the disaster in Japan, I've been rethinking buying a 70-200 f/2.8 IS mkII. At $2500 USD it stops being "just a little bit more" and has made me really reconsider whether it's worth it. For that price I could buy:
1.) 85 f/1.8, 135L, 70-200 2.8
2.) 5DmkI 70-200 f/2.8 + 85 f/1.8
3.) 5DmkI 24-70
Or other similar combinations. I think I may be going a little bit crazy here considering and then reconsidering this.
Anyone have any advice? Would YOU spend the $2500 on the mkII?
