I hope I've put this in the right place....if not feel free to move it Mods
I have decided to hire an L lens for taking photos of the Start of the Sydney to Hobart this year. My husband is participating again!YAY!
Last year I went out on the official spectator boat (the only boat allowed in the exclusion zone) with my 7D and Canon 70-300mm lens. I actually got some great shots which I am in the processs of having printed and framed for the newly vacant walls of my husband's boardroom.
Most of the shots I took that day were at or near the 300mm end of the zoom which is not the best end on that lens.
I am wondering if I should hire the 70-200mm L IS USM 2.8 mark II or the 70-300mm L IS USM ? I would have just gone with the 70-300 but the 70-200 has such a cult following and everyone raves about the awesome quality. I just worry that it won't have the reach I need, but I could crop in PP I guess. What do you all think?
Ps is there much difference in quality between the 70-200 mark I and the mark II??
