Ready to buy a tele lens
Oct 13, 2011

Hi.

I was watching the thread by wolv:

Like him I am ready to buy a tele lens particularly a 70-xxx, any brand. Here are my limitations:

-pricewise, I can't go over the price of the Canon 70-300 L--this is my max

-weight, I also can't go over the weight of the Canon 70-300 L--also my max

-the Canon 70-200 f4 L IS is said to be a good lens and the constant aperture is really enticing---not a necessity, but really enticing

-I've read over and over that IS or OS or VC is a must for handheld shots specially for focal lengths over 70mm, is this true? And I shoot handheld 80% of the time so I feel IS/OS/VC is necessary for me would you agree?

Other than the above, any 70-xxx would be fine with me. Which would you recommend?

Some of you may recommend more than one lens, if you do please rank them; which lens would you recommend as #1, which #2 etc.

Love to hear from you.
