I actually just sold this lens in favor of the f/4L IS version.

But here's one from the f/2.8L IS.

Really, why so? I did the opposite. I had both and ended up selling the f/4 IS because my 2.8 IS is more versital.


It all started as a hobby with a Rebel XT & KIT lens. $5K worth of equipment & $0 of income later, all I have to show for it is a harddrive full of pictures and priceless memories!! Yeah it's still worth it :)

I never shoot at f/2.8. I seem to prefer f/5.6 and f/8 and f/11. Given that, and the fact the the f/4L IS may be a touch sharper, why carry all that extra weight?

EDIT: This shot, as an example, was shot at f/5. The f/4L IS could have taken the same shot just as well.

1/500
f/2.8
ISO 100
150mm FL

slight sharpening in LR + turned up green saturation a bit to give a little more color to the foliage.

Than you are lucky that you can take all the shot in Sunny conditions!
On a cloudy day my 70-200 2.8 is a life saver for stopping the action
with low ISO!
Indoor shot with moving targets will be very hard to do with the F4 IS lens!
