Pros: Hi. This is my first post. Not sure if this is the right forum. Just purchased a Canon 20D and then a 28-135IS which is great, especially when compared to the photos taken with my old point and shoot. As with most of my hobbies, I get the urge to get better stuff...so I am waiting to get a 17-40 L f4.0 and 70-200 L f4.0 lens. They both should arrive this Friday. Two questions: Should I keep the 28-135? If I sell on ebay I could get maybe $300-350 (its less than a month old) Not sure if your that price it would not be better to keep it, although I'm not sure how much use I would get out of it. I couldn't make up my mind between the 70-200 F2.8 or F4.0 until I looked at several web sites which had photos posted using the F2.8. What I found was that most of the postings using the F2.8 were taken at f4.0 or slower. If you're going to shoot most of time at F4.0 or slower, what's the benefit of paying twice the amount for the F2.8?
Cons:
