Quick question,

for members with both full frame and cropped sensor cameras, if you could only have up to 5 lens to share among the two bodies, which 5 lens will it be and specify why. Thanks


Canon 5d Mark II / EF 24mm f/1.4 IIL / EF 70-200mm f/4 ISL / EF 16-35mm f/4 ISL / EF 24-70mm f/2.8 IIL

I certainly don't have the cash but for me it'd be:
Canon 24mm 1.4 II L
Sigma 50mm 1.4
Canon 135mm 2 L
Canon 24 105 L (for video work)
Your choice of either an ultra wide-angle, a telezoom or a macro lens, depending on your hobby.

EF 70-200 II for general tele usage
EF 100 macro for detailed shot and portrait
EF 35L for low light

good discussion, i'm having the same problem right now. i guess it also depends what you're using each body for. i think UWA and normal zoom should be centered around FF because that's its strengths. telezoom can be shared by both formats and maybe 2 primes either 24/50 or 35/85 or whatever to your liking.

so mine would ultimately be something like:
-17-40 (which would also be used as a walk around on crop)
-24-70 (normal zoom for both w/ slight differences obviously)
-70-200 f4 IS or 2.8 mk2 with TC
-35L (wide angle prime on ff or "normal" view on crop)
-85L (portraits either headshots or waist up)

I have the perfect 5 lens kit.
17-40L
24-105L
100-300 f5.6L
300 f4L
500 f4.5L
1.4x
Nikon 5T & 6T macro diopters.
Extension tube.

This gives me 17mm thru to 1120mm on 30D & 5D bodies. + macro up to 2.5x lifesize and as close as 20mm subject distance.

1. EF 70-200 f/2.8 Mk II(+ Canon 2x III and Sigma APO DG 1.4x teleconverters) <-- no need to explain really.
Ok.. awesome IQ and DoF on FF, and use a TC for longer stuff, 400 f/5.6 of terrific IQ on a crop.. boardering on birding lenses.

2. Sigma 150 f/2.8 HSM OS macro. A Sharp, though long, portrait lens with OS, and wicked Macro lens, that will only get nicer with ^ TC's. Just gonna be a kick-arse tele, with many uses... and if quality, focus, build, and OS are all up to snuff.. this baby will be a favorite in many people's bag.. hopefully mine too..soon.

3. EF 16-35 f/2.8 II. Wide on FF, semi-wide on crop...and no IS for walkaround.

4. EF 24-70 f/2.8. Nice walkaround length on FF, mid-length walkaround on crop,,again no IS, but 2.8

5. Sigma 85 f/1.4 HSM. Fast mid-length portrait and low-light for FF, longish portrait and low-light for crop.

Gonna depend on what you shoot but mine is:

24-105 - perfect walk around on FF for me and plenty wide enough for W/A shots
70-200 II - perfect for portratis on FF, nice tele on crop
500 - for my wildlife

Add a 1.4x and 2x and there's my kit, which happens to be the same thing as in my signature.

17-40 f4 (wide angle for FF)
Voightlander 40mm f2 (normal for FF and slight tele for crop)
zeiss 135mm f3.5 (pocket friendly tele for both)
100mm L IS
any oldschool manual focus 28mm, Olympus zuiko 28mm pancake most likely


Because if i'm taking a full frame camera then usually i'm taking it out with intention and i'll have a bag with me for multiple lenses etc, the crop cam is the one i'd take out 99% of the time so i'd want to take it out with the 40mm and a wide angle/tele for pocket friendly shooting. It was a toss up between the zeiss and the 70-200 f4/L IS though
