IS on Lens Choice. HELP ME PLEASE. MY BRAIN IS EXPLODING
So I'm upgrading my gear -
I've chosen the camera I'll be getting in the next couple of months with accessories etc
The lenses I've chosen are the Samyang Cineprimes & also a canon 70-200 zoom lens - now this is where I need your advice
So I saw the Canon L series 70-200mm for a real cheap price the other day, and upon further inspection it had no IS on the lens.
So I thought I'll wait to buy the lens with IS at a later date
I turned my attention to the cine primes and I noticed also - These do not have IS either - I can understand IS at a long focal length - however not fully grapsing these concepts the question is -
Will the IS matter on fixed primes at those focal lengths? 24, 35, 50 & 85mm
The camera wont always be fixed so I will be shoulder operating and steadi operating - Please let me know!
