Help me decide between these two lenses. I'm leaning toward the 150mm due to the f2.8, or will the longer reach be more of an advantage?

The longer reach can be an advantage, or it might not.
What things will you be shooting? If they are aliven the longer reach lets you stay a bit further back and therefor you disturb them less.

I would pick the 150mm f/2.8 as well - it's newer, faster, and lighter -> it does not stop-down as far though
