Re: Do you think it's too heavy?

I don't look for heavy, and there are limits, but I do like solid construction, and to me, the 70-200 f/2.8 IS is just too good a lens to be without. I can (and have) palmed mine around all day long on a 30D with a battery grip and handstrap, and never thought that it was heavy at all. I would never trade it for an f/4 version. But, that is why we are offered choices, isn't it?

If you prefer tourist style camera carry (a neckstrap), a stout lens might mess up your walking gait, hurt your neck, and beat your chest black and blue, but carried right, it is barely noticable.
