Hi , just a quick question/ recommendation. Im going to bali in september and was wondering which telephoto lens would best suit me in terms of travel photography, mostlikely taking pictures of birds and villages on mountians .
70-200 f4L wins hands down legs down everything down haha. Just short of that 100mm but you a faster lens and much better build+ image quality.
My pick will be the 70-200mm f/4.
Both lenses don't have a focal length for wide angle
you'll have problem with landscape, unless you do a pano and stitch.
A picture a day keeps the blues away!
Actually I just came back from Australia trip using a 70-200mm lens... yep it is a great lens, got alot of good photo... but as bro dingaroo had said... the wide aspect is really lacking.
I would recommend a wide lens and 70-200mm for your trip.
What's your current set-up?
Of coz the 70-200 F4L if price is no concern..
i hv a 70-300IS. At 200mm, it's already at f/5.6... if u r not taking fast moving objects and light is sufficient, it should be ok.
i hv played with my friend's 70-200 f/4... the quality is much better, and u have the advantage of fixed f/4.
imho, go for the 70-200mm f4, with IS, if possible
75-300 cheap and good!
If you're renting, then get the 70-200 IS
If you're buying, I would go with the 75-300 if you need the range
