Hi everybody, hope you guys are having a great day! I hope perhaps some of you guys are able to give your opinions on this issue Im currently facing!
Currently, I'm thinking of upgrading and getting a new lens, the Canon 70-200mm L f/4 USM Lens.
However, Im faced with the decision about getting either the 70-200mm L f/4 USM (RRP $1049) lens or the 70-200mm L f/4 IS USM Lens (With Image Stabilization) (which the RRP is ~$1,900)
I am also deciding whether to get it 2nd hand or buy a brand new one (about $500 difference if I buy 2nd hand). AS Im still currently studying,I have limited savings to spend on lenses, so any savings i can make would be tremendously helpful.
So, the main issue I'm now facing is
1) Is the Image Stabilization is really worth the additional money ( ~$500-800 price difference) and
2) Should I get it 2nd hand so as to save money?
I tend to do a lot of landscape photography and action ( Eg. Sports competitions)
