Don't forget the crop factor. 100mm on a T1i is like 160mm.

And a 70-200/2.8 lens is big and heavy. But you could also use the Sigma 50-150mm f/2.8, which is like 80-240mm, and it's a lot smaller and a lot lighter (though it's still bigger and heavier than the Canon 100/2.0.)
  • The lens is the thing.
  • 'Full Frame' is the new 'Medium Format'.
