Keep 35L buy something lens for wider side may be 10-22mm or something like that. It's better to have more than one lens.


I know more about gear than I know about photography :p

I would suggest this:
1. Keep 35L (which will be a 56 on the 7D)
2. Add 17-40 (which is my most used lens and I love it) which is a 25-64 on a 7D
3. Save for the 5D MK III so when it comes out, you can buy when you want, instead of joining the "I wish I could afford this thread".

(I am not saying you cannot afford it, but in my experience, myself at the top of the list, people trade and or sell stuff because they cannot afford to have both, what they currently have, and what they want.)

FWIW, my current line-up is: 17-40L, 70-200 f/4L IS, 70-200 f/2.8 IS II, with the 35L, 24L II and the 14L on the short list. And, of course, the next 5D series, which gives me a year to save for it.

keep the 35 ... save money for a 17-40 or 10-22 for the wider shots

there's no such thing as a 1 lens solution to everything.

The 10-22 will not work with his 5D :p Ops keep your 35L its really sweet on full frame! I like the 35L on my 40D but after i got my 5D the 35L seem much sharper and wider!

he said he's getting a 7D. :) (but it's also why i suggested two kinds of UWA lens for FF and crop)

i actually like the 35 on crop.

I want to travel light (with ultimate quality), now I could get a 17-40, but then I know I'd wish I had my 35L, so I think I've made the decision to get the 24L, it give me the extra width I want as well as the speed all in one lens. For me, in principle, this is a perfect combination.

Okay I might wish I had something in between 24 and my 85 1.8 but when I get the 7D I'll just shoot at max resolution and crop for the same result.

So my line up will be 24L, 85 1.8, 135L and 200L (although I'm still debating whether I should get a 300 f4 or use a TC for weight issues - but that's for another day)

24L here we come......goodbye 35L (I'll miss you)
