What is a good first "L" lens to buy when moving up from the 2 normal kit lenses and a 50mm f/1.8 II?
I would like to get an "L" lens, but as they are quite expensive. I only will be able to purchase 1, so I want to make the right choice. I shoot landscapes, sports, portraits and motor sports (zoom is key to most of my shots). I really like the feel of the f/2.8 lenses, but I know the costs rises quickly at that point.
Would the 70-200mm f/4L do the trick, or do I save up for the 70-200mm f/2.8L?
Is there an affordable 300mm option out there that I might have missed?
Maybe I could go with a Sigma or Tamron zoom?
I would prefer not to wait because I feel without "L" glass I am holding myself from some work that I would like lined up this coming year. Thoughts?
