Hi there. I've been reading this forum for a while and used the search feature but I'm still not sure which lens I should buy next so here's my first posting.
I have a Canon 5D Mark II and the kit lens 24-105 4L. I'm thinking about doing more light hiking(nothing serious...just 3,4 hours hike) this year and thought what most people would buy next when they go hiking.
I was thinking about the following lenses.
1) Canon 16-35 2.8L II
2) Canon 17-40 4L
or if telephoto is the one I should get first then,
3)70-200 IS 2.8L (heard that it's good for portraiture and indoors)
4)70-200 IS 4L (much lighter, super sharp, less expensive)
What would you guys recommend. Get the wide first or the telephoto?
If I were to get both at the same time, what would you prefer?
I don't think I'll get a macro lens yet.
I don't think I'll be taking early sunrise photos and even if I did, will F4 be fast enough?
I don't think I'll be shooting indoor sports although I would be taking photos at indoor parties(so maybe 2.8 is better?) and I love tennis so I'll be taking
photos of tennis at U.S. Open etc.(but that's day time although it may be cloudy. Is F4 fast enough?)
Any other information regarding how to carry gears for light hiking would be appreciated as well.
(Backpack, slingbag, trek/monopod, tripod suggestions, gear suggestions)
Sorry for asking too many things in one posting but any advice would be greatly appreciated.
(p.s. English is not my first language so sorry if there are any grammatical mistakes, etc. You can correct me so I can learn )
I also thought about 100-400 Canon zoom but for now, I think a 70-200 with a 1.4 telecon might be more useful for my situation(thinking about other things other than hiking).
