Swapping Canon 70-200 f/4L IS for Canon 135/f2 or Sigma 150-600

Hi all,

Given up on wedding/event and paid photo work to concentrate on my "real job" (as an IT consultant) and have also re-discovered my love for this wonderful hobby of ours via a Canon M50 and some lenses I bought recently.

My Canon 5DIII has gone to my daughter who is a professional photographer along with a number of lenses. I am now left with a Canon 85/1.8 (an old favorite), Canon 70-200 f/4L IS, Sigma EF-S 17-50 f/2.8 and an old Canon 50D body.

For my M50 I have EF-M 22/2, 15-45 and 50-200 along with an EF-EFM adapter so that I can use my 85/1.8 and 17-50/2.8. I have used my Canon 70-200/4 IS on the M50 as well but I feel that I am covered on that range by the EF-M 50-200.

So here I am with a reasonably expensive lens (70-200 f/4L IS) that is getting little use and I am thinking of selling it now that it is still relatively current (and in mint condition) and replacing it with "something" - the something that I am thinking is either:

a) Canon 135L/2 (216mm equivalent on crop body) as I feel that at that range neither my EF 70-200L nor EF-M 50-200 can match the quality for the odd wedding or portrait shoot that I will invariably end up doing, or

b) Sigma 150-500 f/5-6.3 Art lens (240mm-960mm) for some serious sports photography (I shoot a lot of watersports like kitesurfing and sailing).

c) Keep the Canon 70-700 f/4L IS

d) Another lens

e) Another body - cannot afford RF lenses so I guess EOS-RP is unaffordable

Any suggestions would be massively appreciated

Thanks in advance
Alexis
