    I see,
    I was thinking that a 70-200 will be useful if you spot something interesting across the street or a distance away and you can just zoom in and have a shot. But it will be useless if you want to shoot at a wider angle at near distances.

    it depends on your style. some people go in near with wide-angles, some people, like the shy me, shoot from afar with a telephoto.

    if you want the choice of both, get a 28-200 or 24-200mm lor.

    personally i like the style of using a wide-angle and going in close.

    The whole point of street photography, IMHO, is to show people in or interacting with their environments. A telephoto just destroys that most of the time.
