Default non-is

I had a canon 70-200 f 2.8 is L lens. I dropped it, she be toast. I'm getting new one, but after talking with a professional photog who's familiar with the type of work I do, I'm getting the non-is version this time around. $900 cheaper!

I primarily shoot dog agility in dark horse barns. I almost always am using a monopod. The only thing that's rocking and rolling are my subjects that I"m trying to photograph.

Good move getting the non IS version. I gat advice here on the forum, and to a member, everyone said No IS. And I was shooting high school football games at the time. I got the lens and absolutely love it!!!

If you have a local camera shop that you depend on, buy it from them.

If not, Adorama and B&H are good choices.
