Thank you. Its a bit of a hard decision, especially because im not a professional photographer who earns money with it. Right now (next week) i would save almost 600€ on the RF f2.8 and i think i will go for it. After some months i will hopefully forget about the money and just enjoy it.

I don't think it is even close between the RF70-200f4 plus rf85f2 versus just the RF70-200f2.8. Other than maybe weight (if you carry only the f4) or having semi-Macro (50% 1:1) on the 85f2, the RF70-200f2.8 is a massively better choice in almost every situation. Why carry two lenses, and both with when to change them when one is better in almost every way?
