Last Piece of the Puzzle Solved

200mm f/4   &  70-200mm f/2.8

Last Piece of the Puzzle

     I solved the problem of the heavy wide angle zoom 16-35mm f/4 with a straight 20mm f/2.8 lens,  and so my attention turned to shedding the heavy 70-200mm f/2.8 telephoto zoom with a straight 200mm.  A telephoto is essential to carry with you for all types of photography.  My requirements for this lens was that it had to be light weight and fast enough for low light photography.  I looked at all of the manual zooms from 80-200, 70-210, you name it, I looked at the specs on the lens.  I settled for a straight 200mm f/4 manual focus lens.  It is light, and fast for an f/4 and it had great reviews.  In addition, I bought this one for $86 on eBay.  I can also carry this lens in one vest pocket and the 20mm in the other.  I just can't wait to put the two to work on our next travels.

    Between your travel experience and homework - looks like you will be traveling "lean and mean" in the future.
