Things have changed now, i won't be getting anything until mid September of this year does that mean there is something else to concider around this time other than these 2 ? the 24-70ii or 70-200ii ?
Photogeek, the more i think about it the more im re-thinking the 70-200ii like you said and others have said i have the 17-50 on the crop which could act as a 24-70 for the time being until i can afford the 24-70ii. The 60D focus with the Tamron i find to be great and the Tammy puts out really tac sharp images provided i stay below 800 ISO , but 800iso on the 5D3 is not even noticable and low light the 5d3 win's but in saying that i use off camera flash (and sometimes on camera) quite abit as i love the creative side to it.
Regarding primes i think i can leave without the creamy bokeh of the 1.2-1.4's and utilise the versatility of the 70-200ii 2.8.
Ok more thinking deeper thinking !
say the budget for this year is $2000
What would be the best option here:
(Am i really going to see the difference)
Say my budget is $2000
Should i get a Canon 24-70 2.8 ii this year
and early in to next year (when i can afford it) get the Canon 70-200 2.8 ii
i can get 3 lenses like a 24-105 F4, 70-200 F4 IS and a little extra a Sigma 50.14 ?
I want to shoot portraits, small groups, product, landscape and events ie. engagements or weddings ?
Any information is much appreciated as well as critique !
