Sigma 50 1.4 and Canon 85mm 1.8 so far. Thinking about the 135L.. or getting the 24-70L to have a better standard zoom. Dont feel the need for a wider angle prime...

I used the 28 1.8, 50 1.4, and the 85 1.8 until just recently. I sent the 50 1.4 to a good friend (I simply never used it). The 28 1.8 is wide enough for my interests and the 85 was always on my camera. They're not going anywhere. I could always borrow the 50mm back from him in a pinch.

I replaced the 50 1.4 with the 70-200 non-IS to get a little more reach. Suddenly, I'm being drawn to the deadly duo of L glass and high quality zooms.


7D, 85mm 1.8, 70-200mm 4.0 (non-IS), 24- 105mm 4.0, 430 EX (2X), and assorted useful accessories. (Some not so useful too!):)

Canon EF 100/2 & EF 50/1.8

In the near future, this duo will be joined by a Sigma 24/1.8 and in time, an 'L' glass prime at the most used focal length.

I reserve the right to change this at any time, of course ;-)a

I have a quartet:

24mm f/2.8
50mm f/1.8 II
100mm f/2.8 Macro
300mm f/4L IS

I'd love to improve upon all four, but there's not one among them to be ashamed of.

My Quartet:

Canon EF 28mm ƒ/1.8 USM
Sigma 50mm ƒ/1.4 EX DG HSM Gloss Finish
Canon EF 135mm ƒ/2.0L USM
Canon EF 400mm ƒ/5.6L USM

I plan on upgrading the 28/1.8 to a 24L or 34L and adding a Sigma 85/1.4.

Looking to round it off with the 135mm f/2 L or the 100mm Macro IS L
