My sister, the professional baker and cake decorator once told me that my camera takes great pics. My reply was that I thought her oven baked great cakes.:lol:

I've got the 24-105 and 50 now, and the 10-22 & 70-200 coming soon to a 7D near you ;)

You know, I am VERY happy with what I have. Probably would be happy with just 2 of my lens -

Canon 28mm f/1.8
and the Canon 15-85mm

Love them both.

Pretty much everything with the 'L' in my sig, with the exception of the 17-55/2.8 which IMHO is superior to any 'L' zoom on a crop body with the same focal length coverage. Hoping to add 35L, 85L, and 135L soon.
