Interesting point... on selling the 100 and the 24-70 for the 85. I really do need the Macro for ring shots and such, some people just love getting super up close on their wedding rings.

I really don't use my 24-70 very much but man the times I need it, like on the aisle I don't know what i'd do without it. Oh well, I just need to budget for it I guess. I had a really bad experience when I rented a 85L Mark I and it kinda soured me on this lens but I might have to give it another shot.

Agreed, the 35L destroys everything else.

16-35 I or II? If it's the I, I'm surprised it took you this long to realize it's so-so at best ;)

You certainly don't absolutely need the 24-70 to shoot weddings. In fact, the 24-70 f2.8 is a pretty boring range and aperture but it sure comes in handy at times. :)

35L blew me away to. Paid full price for it and couldn't be happier, amazing piece of glass!

Please disregard all previous posted messages as I have an empty trash can that your are more than willing to use. Let me know where you need it and while you at it; probably you will no longer need the need the bag, pelican case, or thinktank. You can use the same can to reduce that load too. Better yet, I bring a 33 gallon can so we don't have any overflow. Please advise soonest. :-)

Can I just say that I love the people on this forum. I have a tendency to go weeks and months without visiting but coming back takes the edge off of the photography business, makes me love it like a game again. :D

Thank goodness I made the decision to be a scavenger many years ago!

+1. I would sell of the rest if I had them and buy a 5D mk II so I would never have to remove either of them.
