Hi guys. I got some good feedback on the last question I asked so I figured I'd ask another one.
I've got $1150 right now and was looking to buy a 17-40L + 580 EX II (both used).
Doesn't seem like a tough call, but someone has proposed that I sell them my 70-200 f4 (non-IS) since they know I love this lens and want the IS now.
I am selling the non-IS for $500 as that's what I bought it for so that leaves me with $1650. My options are:
-Keep the non-IS (which I love) and stick with my original plan
-Sell the non-IS and buy just the 17-40 and the 70-200 f4 IS
-My friend has proposed me selling the non-IS + the $1150 for his 70-200 f2.8 IS Mk1
I have not used the 17-40, but I like the focal range to complement my 70-200 as the only other lens I have now is a nifty fifty 1.8. I have also been contemplating getting into using at least one flash so the 580 EX II is a tempting option as well.
Is the 70-200 f4 IS the same IQ-wise as the non-IS? I really love the sharpness and contrast of this lens I have now. Also, how does the 2.8 IS Mark I compare? Is it really worth another $600 if I am going to be using it with a flash if I'm in low light anyway?
Sorry for the crazy scenario, but this is why I come to this forum, you guys are such a great help!
