Re: 100mm f2.8 L IS vs 70-200mm f4 L IS

I have tried shooting school plays with a 5D3 using both a 24-70 ll and a 70-200 F4 IS.

I was using the camera hand held and got the best results using the 70-200 at ISO 1600 F4 1/100 sec. It allowed me to frame the shots better and lack of IS on the 24-70 meant that I needed to use the extra stop to increase shutter speed.

I also managed to get some photos at a school play with a 7D and the 70-200 F4 IS.

7D + 70-200 F4 IS at 200mm ISO 3200 1/100 sec and F4
