70-200/2.8 is a very good lens

A prime like the 85 f1.4 gives the possibility of shooting at f1.4.

From f4 to f11 the zoom is equally good and is quite good at f2.8.

I have both and love them both.  I use the 85/1.4 when I don't want to

carry the weight of the zoom.  The zoom is my standard lens for bike races,

parades, landscapes, portraits.


The 70-200 at f8 + D3X:
