Re: Lens quandry regarding lens speed?????


If you\'re almost always shooting outdoors in good light and using a tripod, there isn\'t much reason to choose an f/2.8 or faster lens over an f/4. Two zoom lenses often used by landscape photographers are the 17-40/4 and the 70-200/4. They\'re much lighter and cheaper than their f/2.8 brethren. IQ is excellent, and you can easily find threads and example photos on this site to evaluate for yourself.

Faster lenses would make low-light shooting handheld easier, allow higher shutter speeds for action (and lower ISO- thus less noise), and can help with AF (more highly sensitive AF points enabled). Your post above doesn\'t mention any of those as priorities.
