I am getting 70-200 f2.8 II for the same price as the following set 100 f2.8L, 135 f2 and 200 f2.8. I currently own a 60D and am planning to purchase the 7DII once it is available here in my country. What do you think is a better buy - the zoom or the set of primes? I love to shoot my kid (a very active toddler, her ballet recitals, outdoor sports, etc) and wildlife.
Would love to get opinion from folks here.
I use 135L for indoor events. For outdoor events I love my 70-200f4 IS for its light weight. I think 200 2.8 is too limiting. You may as well add teleconverter to the 135L to give you extra reach. I have a very active 2 year old. IS doesn't do much good since he moves constantly. The 100L focuses very fast though not as fast as the 135L. The 135L gives better bokeh. In my opinion you should get the 135 first, then expand gradually.
