Why not get the 200 f2 IS instead? It's just a 1/3 stop slower, but has IS which more than makes up for that minor difference.

  • As you may have noticed if you have read this thread, according to some of us here that 'minor difference' is not quite as minor as you make it sound.

Trade offs. Your 2 night time portraits could have been taken at iso 200 easily if you had the 200 f2 IS instead of iso 800.

Plus I've heard that Canon will not perform service on the 200 f1.8 anymore.

  • I've got mine insured for replacement value.
