Shooting in a ballroom, awards ceremony, speeches, group shots etc...I am leaning towards a 24-70 f2.8 because it is perfect for the controlled shots I can get. But I'd like to use my 28-300 f3.5-5.6 instead so I can cover the range of shots that I'd really like to get. Given this situation, what would you do?

How bout Tamrons 18-270? I'm not tech savvy, but this lens is wide and zoom.

I say the heck with it, get both..lol, but i'm sure finances come into play.

I should have been more detailed. I have both, I'm looking for opinions on what other photographers would choose between the two. I'm at the event now and have brought both. I have 12 hours to decide...LOL.

It also depends on the camera body and flash setup and lighting inside

I'm assuming light will be dim to dark. You don't want to hit them with to much flash and lose the background, so you will probably be relying on faster apertures or higher ISOs. Unless the ballroom is well lit and you are just using the flash as a bit of fill then your ISOs will be low

I bring this up because if you are using a crop sensor, even a D7100 quality degrades a lot over ISO 2000 ish. The full frames are cleaner higher.

I say this because the 28 - 300 is god damn slow for that situation. For outside, no brainer but ballroom inside? eep. I get that you like the range, but will you actually get a shot at f/5.6 that isnt a blinding flash attack?

Anywho that is my 2 cents. cant you bring both?

24-70 was the right choice.

My 24-70 practically lives on my camera, it s a great all-around lens, and f2.8 is nice in low light.
