135mm f/2L or 70-200mm f/4 IS for kids' performances
5 months ago

Hi all,

I recently upgraded from my trusty T1i (500D) to a 6D and am truly loving it.  Some of my most fun photos over the years have come from my two daughters' ballet and other performances.  On the T1i, the 85mm f/1.8 was a dream; it was really my favorite lens overall.  Does anyone have any experience or advice about the 135 f2 or the 70-200 f4 for your typical ballet, gym, and music performances?  (Probably need the speed of the f2 for dance, I think, and I'm a little sheepish about bringing a huge zoom into the seats, but I'd love to hear about your experiences.)   Thank you.
