    i wish to change my 70-300mm G to 80-200mm 2.8...
    but no $$. if buy 85mm 1.8 (380g) suitable for event shooting??
    i also know 80-200mm 2.8 (1.3/4g) is the best for event shooting... but too heavy...

    any others len recommend?? thx!!

    actually, i only use a 24-120VR for most of my shots. it's not so much the equipment, it's how familiar you are with your equipment, and how well you employ them.

    i think you should work with the 70-300G first, but you need a 18-70DX maybe. so that you have a wider angle lens. plus the 18-70 is really sharp.

    Why are you getting caught up with the 2.8 lenses? If you can afford it good for you, but it isn't always about the lens, it's about the person behind the lens that makes the image look good.

    You can give the best photographer the lousiest camera but he will turn out a great image but you give the worst photographer the best camera he would probably turn out a mediocre image. So it isn't always about the equipment, it's how you use the equipment.

    Here are my lens recommendations. For fashion shows, 70-300mm (more than enough), general event 20-35mm should be good, I would also recommend another lens to cover the 35-70mm range. Even better if you can find one to cover 20-70mm range.

    thx leonzhu & hondasleeper. just thinking 70-300mm G not enough fast n the aperture too small... still consider...
