Had a question about a piece of long glass I'm not too familiar with. I shoot a fair amount of sports for most of my work.
Is the 300 2.8 Non-Is worth it?
I currently shoot with a 5d2/1d2, and on the glass department it's a 70-200 IS II, 24-105, 85 1.8, and for the next 5 months I have access to a 400 2.8 Non-IS. The reason I'm asking on the 300, is the fact that once i leave my current position the glass doesn't follow me, if i were to purchase the glass, it's insurance policy doesn't either. The f4 is/non-is is out of the option list, and 2.8 is a must. I'm dead set on the focal length, so my main question is the reliability of the lens. CPS won't service it, so where does that leave me if something were to go wrong? Any of you guys/gals have any experience with this lens failing you?
Of course I want it. But is the $2400 price worth it now if it needs 1k in servicing later?
