| p.1 #18 · Thinking of swapping 70-200 2.8 for two primes, suggestions? |
I recently shot a wedding where on my full-frame bodies (D700) my 70-200 VR2 was NOT long enough. The best I could do in getting in for tight shots was photos of them with only their feet cut off, and their heads at the top of their frame.
Luckily, my associate photographer was with me, and he just so happened to have brought (so random) his 300 f/4, and that kid has super steady hands. So he got some tight shots of them.
The 70-200 is not my most used lens. I'm a total 35/50/85 guy myself, with the 85 being my go-to lens. But there are times when the 70-200 is a must have, and even then, sometimes isn't enough due to house rules.
I'd keep it, personally. If all you shoot is backyard weddings with no restrictions, you don't need anything longer than 85, maybe 135. But if you do Catholic weddings, we find there are always crazy rules about where you can and can't go, and the 200mm focal length is prime. *Huh-huh, huh-huh*
