Ok, so I am a bit confused. I have an event coming up and I want to get the 24-70mm canon lens but I also need a 70-200. The 24-70 is currently more important but here's my problem. I have a budget of $2500....
1. wait for the new lens to be released and fork out the big bucks and buy the new 24-70 II and hire the 70-200 f2.8 II for the day or
2. buy the older original 24-70 and the older 70-200 f2.8 (no IS-not a huge issue)
Does anyone have experience with both the 70-200 f2.8 IS & non IS versions? or the f4 versions? is there a huge difference? I'll still wait to see some reviews on the new 24-70 once it is released but just wanting some opinions.
