Maybe the question is how often would you actually shoot at f2.8? Is that worth $1,000?

For a crop camera, I find myself shooting at f4-f5.6 even when wider aperture is available.

Sometimes I consider what I'd do if my 200/2.8 got stuck at 2.8?

Actually, I'd likely never notice as almost always shoot with it wide open.

Which brings up what you'd be missing with one of the 70-200 zooms - the creamy bokeh of the 200/2.8L wide open.

I like blue M&M's best.
