70-200 F4 or 180 F2.8 for mainly tripod work ...
Jan 25, 2014

What are your views on these two lenses if you are mainly shooting off a tripod for cityscapes, landscapes mostly at F11?

Well the 180mm is on the cheap side, new ones are like half price to the 70-200mm F4 and used items evern more cheaper and it's a F2.8 not that I need it but it is a 2.8.  I could throw in a TC and it comes a F4 or something.

Would tripod work bother you that much if you didn't have your zoom?  I have also the 85 1.8.

The 70-200 could be a social lens but I don't do much social stuff, and when I do I have a 35-70 for home use, it's a F2.8.  Most of the shots my lot just want them on Facebook anyway, I haven't recieved a single request for a single 6x4 print.  Mine are more interested in shots of them looking directly into the camera with their family / friends ....  I could just make do with my current 35-70 and maybe a 85 or a 180 on my older camera.

Many thanks.
