200mm F2 L IS USM...Nothing comes close for me.

A picture is worth a thousand words :)

I would have to pick my 70-200 2.8 IS, as I could slap on the extenders to expand my range up to 400@ 5.6 and the fact that the non L primes are all pretty darn sharp they could handle to job of my 24-105 or a 24-70.

35L on one body, 135L on another body and 300 f/4 L on another, assuming you mean only one L per body :-)

But if you let me dream on, I'd buy 1D bodies for the 200 f/2 L and 500L.

You would seriously opt for the old 200 f1.8 over the new 200 f2 IS? :rolleyes: :confused:

EF 28-300 mm L IS USM.. everything else, you can get from another brand, but not such an incredible zoom.

24-70 for backpacking or travelling, because you often don't get time/not able to foot zoom or it's not nice stick your lens in someone's face
or
135 for my current life
I'm really getting to like the length of the 135 -wildlife, landscape so far

For me, it'd be a non-L lens - but one that should be an L. 17-55..!!
I've had dreams about this one that I can't talk about. ;)
