F4 is not F2.8...some thoughts

my two cents worth

I am new to full frame, having moved from 4/3 format. Bought my D800 with 24-120 f4, the DoF is so much different because of tghe full frame. Just bought a 50 f1.4, even sweeter for that purpose.

I do want, need a 70-200, but very shallow DoF is not the sole reason I want/need one. Weather sealing as a serious consideration, but so are weight and size, trying tromping through the woods and snow, along with two large dogs...

So for now, I still have not decided, my choices: the Nikon 2.8 or 4 or the Sigma 2.8, which is about the same price as the f4 and comes with a tripod collar
