Off to the world In a few weeks for Star Wars Weekends. I've rented a 70-200 2.8 IS for several reasons, to try the lens out, and to ensure that if I need the reach, I have it. I am pretty sure we will not be back for SWW weekend for at least a few years and do not want to miss any opportunities. We will not be going to Animal kingdom this trip which I know this lens is ideal for. Anyone have any examples with this lens? This special event? Shooting ideas?
For the record I'm shooting with a 50D and will also bring my 11-16 and 18-135.
Was there for very first day of SWW last year but didn't arrive until late morning, which was a big mistake. Be as early as you can to get in.
I have a 5D II and an EOS 3 film camera. My 24-105mm stayed glued to the 5D II and my Voigtlander 40mm stayed on the EOS 3 the entire time. My Sigma 70-200mm never left the hotel room and I didn't miss it. I'm sure I could have used it and shot differently. But the wide to telephoto range of the 24-105mm fit my needs perfectly. So I would think your 18-135mm would most likely see the most action.
