I was wondering if anyone had any input on this.
I shoot a bit of everything, but mostly landscapes and portraits. I am considering the 70-200 f4 IS and the 70-200 f2.8 for a crop sensor (canon xsi). The dilemma is whether the f4 has enough bokeh for portrait shots, and for bokehed landscape shots, and whether the f2.8 would be manageable for landscape photography without a tripod.
Which of these two lenses do you think would be more useful to me? Also,
would it be worth it to invest in the f2.8 IS?
Currently, I only have the kit Canon 18-55 IS. I will probably remain on crop sensors for a long time to come. In the future, I will probably also purchase a 50mm 1.4, any maybe later on a 10-22. If I go with the f4, I might consider the 85mm 1.8 for bokeh shots instead of the 50mm 1.4 or maybe both.
I would like to be able to operate nicely for a long time with just my kit lens, the 70-200 in question and maybe a 50mm 1.4.
Thank you for all of your help,
