Canon 70-200 f2.8 non is or 70-200 f4 is
Mar 12, 2011

I am putting together a Canon package and have a limited budget. I can afford the 70-200 2.8 non is or the 70-200 f4 IS. I do weddings, and portraits. I usually use a900's and sony gear but am going to start building a canon package. I just want sharp pictures and will be shooting in dark conditions form time to time. Just curious if IS was worth the loss of a stop? I will never need to shoot 2.8 when it is not dark so is the f4 better or should I stick with the 2.8 and run with my monopod.
