This is a very common question. lots of threads like these on this board and other forums
I wasn't wanting to rehash the "which is better" debate, I had some serious reservations about the dust "problem" after reading reviews of the zoomer, and really wanted FMers experience on that issue. I didn't see much, if anything, about that particular critique in any of the other "this or that" posts.
I know the zoom is much more handy. I know that if I get the prime I'll have to change lenses some, but I have another body and will most likely have a 70-200/2.8 sitting on it at the ready if 400 is just too close. But, if the IQ and AF speed are adequate...the zoom sounds awfully nice.
A couple people mentioned "finding a good one" (zoomer)... any suggestions for how? I'm sure the one camera store within an hour of here doesn't even have one copy, let alone a batch to pick from. There may be a place north of Philly (90 minutes or better from me) that may have one, maybe more, but I'd have to call to see. How about Annapolis, DC or Baltimore? Any big shops around there that may have one or more in stock? IF so... what should I look for when picking
