Being from the film era, when I started shopping for a 70-200, I knee-jerked to looking at the 2.8.

But then the other knee reacted and said "Hey 'tu-pid! ISO is not 64 anymore!"

So while I would like to have the paparazzi's favorite lens, I'm happy with my f4's value, compactness, lightweight and fantastic color/sharpness.

Small, that's ironic. I put it on to shoot at a party recently and they all said "Whoa! Look-it that BIG camera!"

I Foam Therefore I Am.

And then did they ask, "How far can you see with that??"
Rhymes with slice, rice and mice, and probably should be spelled like "Tice."

This pretty much sums it up: http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Thias

Like most have already said, it's all in what you shoot. I have fast glass so I will have all my bases covered. If I need to shoot in low light I know I can and not have to worry about it. My favorite lens is my 50mm f/1.2L when I am shooting weddings and portraits. It allows me to shoot almost anywhere without flash and gives me a beautifully soft DOF. It's not right for everything but I find it on one of my bodies most of the time.
My pix are here .
