I too am very curious.cwilt said:Gordon,
I don't want to start a zoom vs prime war, just curious if anyone had both and had done serious testing.
If I purchase a 70-200 I will keep my 180.
Hmm, good question. No answer, I have a bad case of LLD, I like good glass and it comes in handy. I occasionally use the 70-200VR with the Canon 500D close up lens. (See various macro posts including my infamous 'Yellow Jacket' post).Dragonflydm said:So again...why keep a $1500 lens in the bag?
Yes. Unless my VR's have suficient light they are limited especially for action shots. Those would be the least likely type I would shoot these days (the exception being my upcoming Alaska trip) so I don't mind the trade-off.cwilt said:VR has it uses, like shooting handheld with a slower shutter. That slow shutter may not stop the action though. Shooting at or close to wide open with fast glass may give you the shutter speed needed to do that. With that criteria which one will have the best image?
