Re: Your both right

I assume the dog photo was shot with 80-200 F2.8. Let's say that you would take exactly the same shot with Sigma 50-150 2.8 (just because it's within the same focal range as photo, 120mm at F2.8 and because Sigma has similar sharpness and bokeh.)

Never used one, but heard it's a nice lens and likely would look very close to this image. But, take a shot with a 135mm f2DC and a 80-200 f2.8 both at 135mm and f2.8 and you would see a difference.

Of COURSE composition etc plays a larger part into the shot. NO WHERE am I discounting the importance of this or saying the skills of the photographer make little difference. I'm saying given you have the skills needed, sometimes the lens used can affect the final outcome.

If you don't believe so, buy the cheapest lens in the focal length you need and ignore any reviews or tests. I assume this is what you do?
