New 70300G or used 70200G...which one to get?
Apr 22, 2012

Obviously the used 70200G would be about 1.5 times the price, but it is a fixed F/2.8.

Which one of these lenses are going to be sharper at F/4.5?

Anyone here own or have owned both? Which one do you prefer? I don't shoot birds, but do go to the zoo and shoot animal pics. Also would set them up on a tripod and shoot video; I assume the focus noise is quieter with the 70200?

Thanks for any help; this is a tough decision.
