Well i've been thinking about this dilemma for a few days and have narrowed it to 3 choices. Which one would you choose below?
1. Buy the 70-200mm IS MK II for about $2099 new
2. Buy the 135L used at about $800 in craigslist + a 70-200mm 2.8 non-IS $1299 new
3. Buy the 135L used at about $800 in craigslist + a 70-200mm f/4 IS $1099 new
4. Any other suggestions based on my use below?
Im new to paid photography though been a hobbyist for years. Recently upgraded to 5D MK III which makes me think that i dont need the 2.8 with IS since i can always bump up the ISO to compensate and i don't do sports photography.. Also interested with the 135L since i have never seen a bad review on it. I am and will be shooting 80% indoor/outdoor portraits for babies, engagement shoots and fitness models. I do predict that about 20-30% of my business will be weddings in 2013. As of now only have 1 wedding book and another on the way for 2013 so mostly portraits/engagement shoots at the moment.
anyways let me know what you think..
Current equipment: 5D MK III, 24-105 f/4 L, 50mm f/1.2 L, 28-75mm f/2.8 Tamron
