    Default think about 24-105mm f4 IS USM or 70-200mm f2.8 IS 2 USM

    hi all ,
    i will buy 70-200mm f2.8 IS 2 usm for fashion and glamour shoot. i have now have 24-105 f4 . i m thinking about i sell 24-105 mm f4 or not . but i love that len because that L lens is quite a little bit sharp than other L lens like 24-70mm. and other is i love starting to shoot the 24 mm range. other thing is i don't like f4 and it doesn't work in low light situation without flash .

    Sell it if you want to. You should determine what works for your needs, not us.

    F4 doesn't work in low light situation without flash???? Uhm. Well, that really says a lot about your "skill" level I'd say.

    Get what you want, sell what you don't need. f/4 does work in low light, just that you have to bump your ISO higher as compared to f/2.8.

    If you don't like f/4, by all means go sell it and get whatever you need. be it 24mm prime or 24-70 f2.8 etc. You need to work out your own needs and budget if you are going to buy/sell stuffs.

    Sounds like the best choice. TS wants 24mm and don't like f4, so just get 24-70 f2.8 ii lor

    IMO, with the 7D body and 70-200 2.8, a nice matching couple will be the 16-35 2.8 plus 50 1.2 or 1.4 to cover the in-between focal length.

    With the 16-35, TS will be able to get a wider angle than the 24mm and the 50mm can be used in a much lower light situation than the f2.8

    This is just my opinion.

    You want sharp sharp, don't bother with either zooms. Go buy 24mm f/1.4L, 35mm f/1.4L, 50mm f/1L, 85mm f/1.2L, 135mm f/2L and 200mm f/2L

    Sharp sharp use prime and all give you very low light shiok shiok gao jurong.

    50mm F1.8 - best bang for buck.

    if you like shooting mainly at the 24mm length, you can consider getting the Canon EF 24mm f/1.4 L. If don't have the budget, you can get the Canon EF 24mm f/2.8 which is light but well built
