I wouild use a 1.4 x convertor with your 70-200 f4

I don't think the 70-200 alone will be good enough in most instances.


All the best

I use a Sigma APO 70-200 f/2.8 with a Sigma 1.4X EX Teleconverter. Anything over 1.4x it gets to soft.

I got a sigma 1.4x DG on ebay for $100 that I use with my canon 70-200 f/4. The lens is acutally SHARPER with the teleconverter :eek:

That lens should be just fine, depending on where you are in relation to the action. A lot of people like the 100-400mm lens for airshows also; giving you a bit more reach, especially at the long end.

I'd either get a 1.4x extender or rent a 100-400. The 70-200 won't be enough by itself imo.

I was just at a show this weekend with my 70-200 2.8 with 1.4 extender I was wanting a little more. Yours will definitely work but as someone mentioned above, if you can get your hands on a 100-400 I think you would be very happy.

Can't wait to see some pics
