Electric Drums - Opinions / Advice Please?

I've gigged with them before but I don't care for them... mainly because the feel is not the same as acoustic drums and cymbals. They could be a useful practice tool for learning grooves but not so much for technique IMO.

They'd be a godsend for the rest of the family I suppose.

I have both... the 70-300L is sharper, however the extra reach of the 100-400L is useful sometimes. Depends on what focal length you need to shoot at most. I use the 7-300L most of the time now.

I own both and use the 70-300L 99% of the time. I like the 70mm vs 100mm on the short end. But I also own longer primes (400 and 500) so my needs may be a little different.
