Feedback please ---
I am looking to purchase 1 or 2 len's --- feedback is appreciated (yes I know, what is my shooting style? Well I like to take pictures so always looking to try new lines
1. Canon 70-200 2.8 II
2. Tamron 15-30 F2.8 + Canon 200 2.8L
3. Canon 16-35 F/4 + Canon 200 2.8L
I can go with any of the combo above
I do want to have something I can use to photograph my kids baseball and soccer (they are 9 + 11)
P.S. I currently have 24-70 F/4 + Sigma 35 + Rokinon 12FE / 6D
Your signature line says you also have the 135L, as well as the 11-24L on order. If this is true, not sure why you'd also need a 16-35 or 15-30.
Keep in mind that the Tamron 15-30mm cannot be fitted with a filter. It has a protruding front element. Same with the Canon 11-14mm.
The 16-35/4L, on the other hand, uses 77mm filters, same as your 24-70/4L and either the 70-200/2.8 or the 100-400mm (either version).
Not sure why you want one of the wide angles, though...Those are more scenic/architecture lenses, rather than sports/portraits. But, hey, whatever floats your boat.
For field sports, I agree that the 70-200 likely won't be long enough on a full frame 6D.
So I'd get the 100-400L Mark II, if I were you. Or, if you prefer, the get the original 100-400L "push/pull" zoom (which people either love or hate). Those are being sold out at a discount to make way for the new model. The Sigma's 120-400 OS seems like a pretty good alternative (it's bigger though) at an even more attractive price.
