If you had both , you know there is more to it than just 1 stop .

But no - if the only difference you saw was 1 stop .

For example - I can put the 2 X III on the 2.8 and have the AF work . Can't on f 4 .

The camera focuses at 2.8 faster than 4 - kind of important for BIF . One stop is not much until you think speed - big difference between 1/30 and 1/60 .

Consider buying a monopod .
