For reasons I can't disclose, May is going to be a really busy month for me and most of it will be spent in a dark theater May will be busy enough that I decided it was the time to strike and buy that lens I've been dreaming of. Maybe I'll need a tax write off after this month.
Yes I bought the 70-200 f/2.8 with VR. I saved a bundle by getting the older VR rather than the VRII. When I need to focus on things that are 5 feet way I'll just use my other fast lens, my Sigma 17-18 mm f 2.8 with VR.
This week I photographed two concerts so my images are somewhat similar, but the lighting was very different. The first concert was in a elementary school gym with horrible lighting. The second was in a large church that was a bit dim, but still had all kinds of interesting lighting.
I was really happy with my church pictures but they were not given much room when they were printed.
