Excessive lens purchase or justified quality L glass?
I'm back on about the 100mm MKII macro.
I have a MKIV & amongst other glass the 70-200IS (MKI)
I know this crop would be 130 -but i was concerned that I would be buying a lens that had 'overlap' with my 70-200 IS (MKI). So looking for comments on the following thoughts...
-the 100mm has the new hybrid IS and I cant afford the new 70-200 MKII so I'd get a new lens with the new IS just not a zoom
-will this be 'better' than using my 70-200 set at 100 because of the new IS and also the fact its a prime?
-I would be able to get portrait shots with a smaller minimum focus distance than my 70-200 (around 1.5m)
-macro would be nice but not a deal breaker -but I think it would be 'fun' to have macro to play around with some fun shots- possibly producing some different work with it.
So - to buy or not to buy?
let the comments begin!
