Is 1 stop worth $1200 to you?
11 months ago

After having both f/4IS and f/2.8IS II versions of the 70-200 for a year, I decided to keep the former and sell the latter. I finally came to terms after my arms were getting weary from shooting BiF for a few hours realizing a 1 stop advantage for the additional weight wasn't worth the $1200 difference between them.

$1200 or $2400,........is the price difference worth it for the shooting you do?
