what exactly are you shooting? EXACTLY.... Say cars and be prepared to be flamed, we can all figure out its cars from the question you asked.

Are you shooting drag racing, moto gp, motocross, autox, F1 (in which case you wouldnt be asking these questions)

a close up shot for me would be a 400+mm, you see airplanes (and drivers in the case of racing) are usually far away so long lenses are needed for "close up"

Give me a kit lens & I can shoot all of those choices. Finding the angle & the light is more important IMO.

Switch situations, and each lens is in the wrong place.

Understandable.

Right now I have a
50mm f1.8
75-300mm EF f4-5.6 (picked it up for $99 used. No stability control though.)
28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM

should I stay with these lens for now or upgrade?
