Re: Frustrated... Primes vs zooms


Yes! I exchanged my 70-200 4.0 L IS with the 100 L Macro two years ago. And I love the 100 although I do not do macro. But I am pretty sure I will switch back. The two 70-200 Ls (2.8 IS II and 4.0 L IS) are as good at 100mm at 2.8/4.0 (or even better at the corners). And they are much more flexible. If the 24-70 4.0 L IS would offer the same IQ like the 24-70 2.8 L (and just one stop less, but with IS instead) like their 70-200 counterparts I would go 24-70 and 70-200 4.0 Ls and a 6D and it would give me what I need in 99%. No prime ever would be able to do that. Maybe I would like to add the Sigma 35mm 1.4 sooner or later, too. To encounter the night.
