    IS vs Non-IS

    Within the family of 70-200mm lenses, there are a couple of paths you can take: image stabilized/non-image stabilized and f/2.8 or f/4. If you are shooting in situations where you might have to use slower shutter speeds than desired, an image stabilized lens might be required – such as when relying on natural lighting in the evening or at indoor events. Image stabilization can be a useful feature when shooting weddings or when on vacation, where lighting conditions are unpredictable. Some mounts only offer image stabilized versions, making the choice easy.

    f/2.8 vs f/4

    For maximum aperture, some mounts offer an f/2.8 version and an f/4 version. The f/4 versions will be smaller and lighter but otherwise offer the same features. They are preferred for when you simply need something more portable. Choosing the f/4 version can save you a little money if you're not going to take advantage of wide apertures anyway. Not all mounts offer an f/4 version, however. The f/2.8 versions provide extremely pleasing subject-to-background separation – ideal for buttery bokeh in portraits of people and animals. All lenses listed below are compatible with full frame and crop frame sensor cameras for their respective mounts.
