Budget, i'm a fishing bum:lol: Thanks for clarifying the 15-85 & 17-50, that helps a lot towards what i would purchase for a general walk around lens.
I have been eye balling the 24-105 as a possibility, the Tamron 28-75 could be an option, i still would like something a little wider.
On the long end, i've been looking at the 300f4 with a 1.4 converter or possibly the 400 5.6.
I'm guessing the Tamron 90 2.8 would work on the camera for the macro, i've seen some pretty decent prices on the non IS 100 Canon lens here, i'd probably lean more towards it.

Once again, thanks for the wisdom & please keep it coming.

Ronnie


I'd rather be fishing!

No problem on the clarification. I have the Tamron 28-75. Although I do like the IQ, it doesn't get used much because it's just not wide enough for my style. I tend to leave it behind for my 16-35 and 50 combo. Unfortunately, for the 1.3 crop sensor we don't have a zoom like the 15-85. I'd pay a lot of money for a zoom like that in a f/2.8 or even a f/4. I've determined that my Tamron 28-75 will be put on permenant backup duty. I'm probably going to go for the 24-105 as my walkaround.

My first walkaround lens was the 28-135IS on a 1.6x 20D. I HATED it. That pretty much forced me into getting the 10-22 EF-S for the 20D. Had I known a MKIIn was was around the corner, I'd never gotten the 10-22 EF-S for the 20D.

I own the 28-75 Tamron, and it is my walkaround lens for the 1D. For my use/tastes, the 28 mm end is fine with the 1.3x body. I may get a 17-40L someday, but for now, I am very content with 28 x 1.3.

28 x 1.6 was just unbearable when that was my setup...

I shelled out the clams for a 1D Mk IV and immediately fell head over heels for the ID bodies.I work on the waters of Puget Sound and didn't want to risk a high dollar camera to the salt water environment(not to mention our cars either being stolen or broken into on the Seattle waterfront,one of our foremen had his car stolen twice,another pilebuck had his car stolen once last year,so I've been taking my camera equipment with me on the rig)....and didn't want to shell out that many clams again for a MK IV backup body...so I bought a MK II last month with 32K clicks last month for $709 that is in excellent shape-http://cgi.ebay.com …agename=STRK%3A​MEWNX%3AIT (external link)

I was more then satisfied with the resolution of the less mega pixels,so I started following MK IIn's looking for a low shutter count in excellent condition...found one last weekend,but probably paid more then I should have,but it only had 9915 clicks...it cleaned up very well removing the the few minor rub marks and the dirty bottom with some alcohol. http://cgi.ebay.com …agename=STRK%3A​MEWNX%3AIT (external link)

It was this thread that swayed me to the MK II...and that's what I'm telling the wife...but in reality,I only have myself to blame for falling for the 1D bodies.

Here's one of my first images out of the MK II just before the sunrise four weeks ago...a fairly long exposure at ISO 100 wide open with a 28-70/2.8 L tripod mounted with a bit of breeze didn't make for a perfectly sharp capture.

The MK IIn with the 17-40/4 L...Found out the sensor was filthy with dust reviewing pix from my first test run(the pix of the Spaced Needle were covered with dust spots,so I removed most of them) I later used a bulb blower to remove most of the dust,the bottom two pix were after I blew off the dust.

Looks like the shutter on my 1DmkII is failing. Anyone with experience sending this camera in for a shutter replacement? Not sure what the procedure is. Gonna call Canon tomorrow morning for an estimate. Might as well get a good clean-up too.

Consider joining CPS, you will get a discount on the repair.
The procedure is to go to the service part of their website and open a work order, and then just follow the steps. It's pretty self explainatory.

Eventually I will, but don't have the required gear to qualify (not enough L glass).

Do you need prof of purchase for all the lenses and bodies that qualify for CPS? Cause I'm just a 50 1.4 away from CPS membership...but all of my other qualifying gear has been bought used.


...screw listing gear,it just sets up preconceived notions...but if you must link (external link)

No, you just register the equipment by using the serial numbers.
