How do you shoot people on the street
Mar 24, 2008

How do you guys shoot people on the street and what equipments do you use? (lens? FF/crop? IS/VR/monopod? shoot&run/ask4posing?)
Do you have any interesting encounter to share?

I use 85/1.8 on a Canon 1.6x crop, usually I just do shoot&run, but 85mm doesn't allow me to do it so stealthily so I am recently thinking of getting a 70-200 for this purpose.
There are 5 lenses that I can see will do the job
Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8 USM L
Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8 USM L IS
Canon EF 70-200mm f/4 USM L IS
Canon EF 70-200mm f/4 USM L
Sigma AF 70-200mm f/2.8 EX APO HSM DG
which one do you recommend?

Currently I have my eyes on the Canon F2.8 non-IS, it has respectable resolution and a shallower DOF than the F4

Tell me what you think and how do you shoot.
Feel free to share your opinion.
