I shoot a lot of indoor sports and dance recitals. I use a 7D with a 70-200mm 2.8 vr 2. The 70-200 works out fantastic in most cases. Recently my daughter started dancing for a team that goes to comps in gyms. Most of these gyms are very small venues, some have no stands, just the sidelines therefore the 70-200 is just too big.......... This is where I start to contemplate the 24-70 2.8 vr 2......Id assume it should be plenty fast. Not as fast as a prime but primes wont fit well for what I do. I need the zoom. The other factor holding me back from the 24-70 is the lack of I.S.....While I.S. may not be completely needed it sure would be nice to have and to be honest it just kind of bugs me that @ 2k + it comes without it...Has anyone had experience using the 24-70
in dark, poorly lit gyms? .....Opinions on its performance and opinions on other possible lenes that may work better. Thanks in advance.
