70-200 f/4 IS v. 70-200 f/2.8 non-IS for general purpose
Nov 29, 2007

Hi everybody, I am planning to buy a new telelens and I have ended up hesitating between these two. I want a general purpose lens (family, holidays, portraits..)but I am also planning to use 1.4x conveter for some wildlife photography. I ve read that for sport photography is f. 2.8 is better ,but is IS really worth it??Is f/2.8 really that sharper from f. 4???
