We all go through agonies about lens choices. Ideally I think I would like the new 70-200 2.8L II but the best price today seems to be, well, about $2500.
Compared to that, there is the old 70-200 2.8L for a thousand less, and possibly declining do we think?
I am also pulled to the 100-400 4.5-5.6L, much slower but many report that it pulls in light very well. It is in the same price range as the old 70-200.
All the above accept extenders. I see reports that the new 70-300 f4-5.6L does not and I haven't seen a price for it yet.
My immediate use for it will be photography of cricket, say a batsman or bowler in the centre taken from over the sidelines. But I also have to think about use as a general travel lens. For that I am drawn to the 70-300 DO, which is so compact. But that is for another time.
Any contributions to my thought processes please?
