I am going to get rid of 2 of me 3 lenses that are all the same focal length. I have a 35-70mm F3.5-4.5 (external link), 35-105mm F3.5-4.5 (external link), and a 28-80mm F3.5-5.6 USM (external link) (this is the version that used the ring USM and looked like a smaller 100-300mm). I am thinking that I am going to keep the 35-105mm since I don't need the wide on that too much and I love the push pull style. I am wondering what you think of this selection of what to keep and what to get rid of.
Thanks
Nick

i beliveve its really up to you.

keep the one that would suit your needs most - and that seems to be the 35-105mm from your own mouth.

I am thinking of trading a friend for his 28-105mm F3.5-4.5 USM the 28mm F2.8 and the 35-105mm because he love the push pull over the twist(I agree, but I would like the faster af speed), is that any better of a lens?

Ha ha ha, sounds like you got the "L" fever.
Congrats it's a great lens.
