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 .

the question is i can sell that 24-105mm f4 or not?

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.

Sell the 24-105mm f/4L, get the 24-70mm f/2.8II L and be happy!

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
