Canon 20-700/2.8L IS II...Well, that is, if I ever eventually buy it, that is.

I'll never part with my 24-70L, never ever! Never. It's my go to lens and the one that lives on my camera 95% of the time. It's so useful and extremely sharp. I love it!

I would probably sell my 70-200 f4 and my Tamron 17-50, but I don't think anyone could take the Sigma 30mm 1.4 out of my hands.

I'd sell all my lenses in a heartbeat if I had a good reason to - like me upgrading it into something I can use better... :)

That said, there's some lenses I don't see myself without - or ever upgrade: Tokina's 35mm macro and 11-16 (unless I go full frame - then both will have to go).


Some of my lenses focus beyond infinity...!

I can't choose from the 135L & the ancient FL-F300 f5.6 Fluorite with EF Base (I bought it in 1971). Both are SO sharp it's frightening.

Canon 300mm ƒ/2.8L IS. That thing creates magical pictures.

My Canon 60mm macro - I have to force myself to shoot anything else underwater. I don't use it that often on land, but when I do, I love it then, too.

But I'd never want to be without it under the sea!

But surely when a new 85l III or 135l II is released the old version will be terrible!

For me it has to be the 24l II.

I have 3 lenses I absolutely love, but the only one I could never ever sell would be my Sigma 30mm f1.4

Are you thinking of ever going full frame? ;)

As good as an EF-S lens may be, any of mine I would end up selling if and when i get a 5DmkII or other FF camera.
