No lens you'll ever be ale to afford is capable of that. To get a frame-filling shot of a 1 yard scene at a distance of 200 yards, you'd need an angle of view of about 0.3 degrees. To get that angle of view on an APS-C sensor, you'd need a 4000mm lens. That's 5 times longer than the longest lens mass-produced by Canon. There actually is a lens that could ...

So, with any matchup, you have L lenses on full-frame bodies. As for which camera/lens combination to use where, I suggest you use the body that performs best in low light for indoor shots.
