Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L USM Telephoto Zoom Lens for Canon SLR Cameras or Canon EF 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM Standard Zoom Lens for Canon SLR Cameras
I have a 5D mk3, not a pro photographer. I own the Canon 50mm f/1.4, and the Canon 100mm f/2.8 L IS Macro (which is amazing).
I'm considering a zoom lens for versatility. Not sure what I'll be using it for (again, I'm not a pro). The 28-135mm seems like a great general purpose range, but my other two lenses fall within it (so perhaps not entirely necessary). Then the 70-200mm (f/4L) seems like a great deal. Price difference is about $200. Just not sure which lens would be better to have.
Or... to throw a wrench into the thing, should I pass on both of those and save up for the 24-105mm f/4 L instead? Again though, my other lenses are within the range. (But I'm kicking myself for not buying the 5D kit which included it for a discount.)
Bottom line is -- I don't need this new lens, I just want one. Farting around on a walk, taking it on a hike, using it for a video... I dunno what I'll be using it for. Do these sound like good choices? Favor one over another? Some other lens suggestion? (I'm not opposed to third party brands) What's your advice?
(Thanks for the time...)
