Question for the 70-200 owners.
How much do you use yours from a day to day basis? Do you use it for portrait or you're using your primes? For me I noticed that since i got the 70-200, i'm not really using it that much considering i'm mostly doing party events. I also do videos in a darker environment.
I used it once in a christmas party and i have to watch out all the time for kids running around. I was afraid of knocking them off with the lens.
I feel the need of the 35 f1.4(sigma) and sell the 70-200 and the 40mm when the price go back up.
So i will end up with the 17-40 for my wider needs(e.g. landscape), 85mm for some portrait and medium telephoto job and the 35mm for indoor event jobs.
I'm going to test my 85mm tonight at a basketball if it fits my need when my 11yo son starts playing.
i know you guys are tired of hearing from me about lens changes but there i go again. I think it's what we call low budget evolution. If I'm earning good now, i would love to keep the 70-200.
My return window for the 70-200 is still up until January 31 2013.
PS(for the moderators). I'm not selling here, just asking for opinion.
