Love what the 85mm F/1.8 does with my 7D. 70-200 F/4 is wonderful! And as long as you can practice with your focus first, the 50mm F/1.4 is beautiful too. But most of all, know your camera and keep it with you!

if i was in your possition and shooting weddings and things for a living then id prob set up something like

sigma 8-16
sigma 30 1.4 / canon 35 L
sigma 85 1.4 / Canon 85 L
canon 70-200 2.8 IS mkii

However thats just from reading about the internet over the past couple of years. I dont do what you do so my needs are rather different.

Has the TF retired? Or just being utterly lazy?

If your going to buy an 85 go for the sigma 85 as suggested by Genome. Although on a crop its a bit long. A 50 works great as a portrait lens.

So the "general" consensus I'm getting from your replies is something like this:

Wide angle: Tokina 11-16 or Canon 10-22
Standard: 17-55mm IS, or perhaps Tamron non VC
Longer Standard: 24-70mm L, or Tamron 28-75mm
Telephoto: 70-200mm 2.8 IS II or if on a budget the F4 IS version
Prime: Something in the APS-C equivalent of normal or slightly wide such as the 24L, 35L, or 30mm Sigma
And for a portrait prime either a 50 or 85 Sigma.

This of course is open to discussion (and argument :eek:) but I think this gives me a great idea where to go from where I'm at and helps me to avoid some lenses that might be acceptable yet not "great" at least on my 7D. Thanks again for the warm welcome to the forum. There seems to be a great number of friendly, knowledgeable folks here. I'll be counting on that in the future as I get to know my Canon equipment better! :D

Follow whatever floats your boat. You'll probably get hundreds of different combination of lenses from different type of shooters. Welcome to POTN buddy. Enjoy your stay. :)
