Hi.

As you can tell you everyone has an opinion. You have a lot of good opinions from a lot of good people here. And everyone is correct based on what they like.

So my suggestion is to narrow it down to a two, maybe three, and rent them. See what you like. Then based on other factors (price, versatility, future plans, etc.) buy the one that you want to post about when someone asks these questions.

Best in your decision.

Hi,

thanks everyone for all the precious advice. I can't wait for this weekend to try the 85mm I received.

i think I may order the 70-200 f4 as it looks like the reviews are very good, the comments here are positive, and it is one 70-200 I may actually use as weight is no issue...

thanks again
