Im currently shooting with a 70-200F4 non IS. Ive loved this lens, but Id like something a little faster.
I have two main options from here after selling my F4. Considering a good half of what I shoot with this lens(es) will be paintball, AF speed is of pretty high importance when paired with my 40D.
Option 1 is a canon 70-200 2.8 non IS or a Sigma 70-200 2.8 II. Both will be sufficiently sharp. Im just worried the Sigma's focus may be slower. Also, I dont believe the Sigma is weather sealed. Which isnt a big deal, but sucks a bit.
Option 2 is I can get two nice primes, 100 F2 and 200 2.8L for a little more than the previous option, but Ive always wanted the F2 for portraits and the 2.8L is just plain sexy.
If I did get the Sigma, I may be able to get the 100F2 as well not too far down the road.
Also, 99% of my paintball shots are at a full 200mm. So shooting with the prime wouldnt be a problem, and I expect to get a tcon for the telephoto no matter which lens I get.
Im leaning towards the Canon 2.8, but I would appreciate some input.
Thanks guys and gals.
