Hey dudes! it's one of these threads again. I'm looking to pick up my first high quality tele lens, I've been considering three and I wanted to hear some input from what you guys are shooting with.
Ill be using it on a GH4 with a speedbooster XL, I mainly plan on using the lens in the back country.
The three I have been considering are:
Canon 70-200 f/2.8L IS
Canon 70-200 f/4L IS
Canon 70-300 f/4-5.6L IS
Tamron 70-200 f/2.8
My main concerns is whether or not I can get away with using the f/4 or 4-5.6 on a crop body in lower light situations. I'd love to be able to save a bit of cash from the 2.8, plus the f/4 will end up sharper. I'm up in BC so as many of you know conditions get cloudy QUITE often.
For the Tamron my worry is durability since it is a plastic bodied lens, I'd like for whatever I get to be able to take a bit of a beating as well as a bit of wetness.
