Next best lens to 70-200/4 IS?
Dec 13, 2011

I could also use a bit more focal length. But, the most important thing is to not spend more than the value of my 70-200/4 IS USM lens: as I'd have to trade/sell it to finance the other lens.

My guess is the 70-300 IS USM (non-L). Can it be used (with any kind of success) with a Kenko 1.4X PRO 300 DGX TC? Oops. Just remembered that would take me out of using the AF. Right? Is the Canon 55-250 in the running? What else might be advised? Or maybe just keep using the 70-200 and do some serious cropping instead? I shoot with a T1i.
