I need help deciding, if I should upgrade my 70-200 f/2.8 to the 70-200 f/2.8 IS II OR purchase the 16-35 f/2.8 II.
I currently have:
24-70L f/2.8 II
Is the 70-200L f/2.8 worth the $1,000 upgrade?
I currently revamped my bag, so may thoughts were not one more lens or the IS II version of the 70-200.
Well, what camera body or bodies are you using? I'm shooting a 1D IV so I have a 16-35 f/4 IS instead of a 24-70 f/2.8 II though that is next on my list. I just bought the 70-200 f/2.8 II a couple weeks ago. I'm not a pixel peeper, per se, but so far, I love the photographs it produces.
Sorry I don't have an actual recommendation because I've never had version one of the 70-200.
I do see that you might be like me. I also have the 70-300L. I loaned it to our youngest son not long after I got the 100-400ii. It's such a nice lens, I couldn't bring myself to sell mine, esp. at the current used prices.
