200 2.8 vs 180 Macro
Aug 2, 2012

Hi all. I have FF with 85, 100L Macro and 135 at this time. I used 200/2.8 and liked it for it's size, quick focusing, sharpness and nice bokeh. As I need dedicated Macro lens, I am thinking to dump 100L Macro and skip 200 2.8 for the 180 Macro. I know is a large, heavy beast but I can put up with it as long as it will give me something similar to 200/2.8. I will use it as a macro, but also some candid portraits and occasional soccer game. So, if anybody used both of them, is it possible to pull it out with 180 Macro, or should I just keep present setup and add 200/2.8. Only reason for this move is to downsize the stable, as price wise is almost a wash. Thank you for your opinion.
