With tax time coming up and hoping that the wife will release a little fundage. I have started looking at picking up a 70-200. Of the three lenses in my price range I would like to find out what the thoughts of the great people around here on them are.
The F4/L (non IS) Canon often listed as a the best bang for the buck lens there is.
Almost everybody loves this lens. The only things I hear said about it is from the people who have had both the IS and non-IS versions. The most seen line is after having both, no way would I go without the IS again in that FL.
The F4/L IS Canon. If I get used this lens fits inside my budget. A five star lens on The Digital Picture. Great lens from everything I have seen. Is it worth twice the cost over the F4 non IS?
The F2.8/ VC Tamron. Again the used ones I have seen fit in at about the same price as a used F4 IS. I really love my 28-75 so I have no aversion to 3'rd party lens and this one seems to get great reviews as well. But I don't see a lot about it.
Any input would be great.
If it was your money. Would you spend twice as much as the F4 non IS on one of the other lenses and why. Or would you pick up the F4 and spend the extra cash on something else camera related?
