    i was thinking of the 70-200 f4 L but that would be in maybe 2+ months. Maybe I can afford the 2.8, just dont know how necessary it is.

    It's worth every penny, especially for indoor use in handholding at speeds below ~ 1/50, which is difficult at 200mm without IS.

    trust me, your liberal use of NN will defeat any of the perceived "sharpness" the non IS will get you.

    I want a 70-200 2.8 IS - I have an f/4 non-is. Trade and cash? If not, how much would you sell outright for?

    I did the same thing you are doing. I just didnt use the IS as much as I thought I would and wanted a wide angle lens. I put mine on fred miranda and had a guy trade me $550 plus his 10/10 non-IS for my IS, then I bought a 10-22 with the $550.

    no crap, but are you doing it to free up some $$$ or to try and gai something you feel yours is lacking?


    not many here have the non IS if any :hs:

    FM or POTN would be a better place

    The IS would be nice for Motorsports panning that I do.
