My vote would go to the 24-70L. I find it interesting that so many people are voting for the 70-200 f/2.8? I have one and I use it once or twice a year. I find it too long for most applications; other than sporting events. Maybe that is what most people voting for it use it for?

tough to say between the 24-70 and the 70-200 2.8. each has its uses but both are incredibly flexible


40d + 50mm f1.8 MK I + my feet.

It is the most amazing sportslens when you're looking into the versatility, but honestly... The 70-200 can be used for nearly everything because of it's reach! On the 'wide' you can just take a few steps back to frame it like you would with a, let's say, 50mm!?

85mm f/1.2L II

It was a toss up between that and the 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II, but the 85 is unique/special/peerles​s and now I have one, I ain't letting it go! :D

I love my 85L too but for daily walkaround I have the 24-105 on most of the time with the 70-200 2.8 II about half of the time. I use the 85L for special events and rarely take it out of the bag outdoors... Dunno why, it just works out that way.

Based on use I'd go with the 24-105 but I'd be hard pressed to do without any of my current glass...

I WOULD NOT...

I would not shoot with a DSLR if I could use only one lens... Instead I would select a high-grade bridge camera...

One of the tilt shift lenses. They're unique in their capabilities.


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!):)

If you could only have one "L" lens, and this would be your only lens, which would you choose?

70-200 2.8 IS II, and go for non L primes like 28/35/50/85.
