Canon R shooters - give up f/2.8 for f/4?

11 months 2 weeks ago #708946 by Photo Amigo
I've notice a couple landscape photographers talk about ditching their heavier f/2.8 lenses for the f/4 version.  Specifically with the 70-200mm RF.   They make a good point about not shooting wider than f/5.6 most of the time with landscapes.  But wouldn't the f/2.8 fair better in lower light?

Of course 2.8 is better in low light but you were talking about landscape shooters. That usually means they are on a tripod with the lens set at f-8 to f-11. They don't care about low light capabilities. Now if you are talking street shooting or night shooting, then that's a different story.

ƒ stops are powerful tools… everyone of them has its very
own tasks. Sure, light is free but ƒ stops come at a cost.

Light is free… capturing it is not!
