Stay alert, control the camera, save photos

It's being told by someone who doesn't know what you need that you have got it wrong and you don't knowSure, but we've all been that guy when the thing we want is not the thing Canon offers us.
Trust me, I know.
I use both the 500PF and the 100-400mm II. I am surprised that photojournalists use the 24/1.4, 35/1.4, 50/1.2 instead as I find them not much use for telephoto work. The 500PF image thread on Fred Miranda is already 186 pages long and the lens has been out for less than 2 years.The Nikon 500/5.6PF was out of stock for months because many press agencies placed big orders for it.
But the photojournalists generally use the EF 100-400 II lens (or now the RF 100-500) or the EF 70-200 2.8 III with a 2x teleconverter.
If they do use a prime, it is usually one of these three: 24/1.4, 35/1.4, 50/1.2
