Gear is fun but with all the gear you already have I'd say use the cash to take a trip to come place you have always wanted to shoot!

You didn't list any lighting equipment, so why not get some 580EX's or bigger lights like alienbees, pocketwizards, lightstands, softboxes, umbrellas, snoots.

That, and a TS-E :)

look at all those lenses....

not going to give you crap because i'm a gearhead too, but what bases do you feel aren't covered? why are you so determined to spend the cash on glass?

Show us your images first.

It may be wise to use that cash on fishing equipment if your photographic ability does not match your equipment.

If I had your gear list (which is great already) I would venture into the medium format bodies. I bet those are a different world over there. ;-)a

As suggested I may move the 300 and 400 and go for the 200-400 just wish there would be a definate answer on if canon is going to produce this lens or not, it would help in my decision

James, it's obvious you like to shoot wildlife - why not do what many wildlife photographers have done - sell your 600 f4, take the money from that, plus the $4500, and buy the 800 f5.6.

I personally know 2 people who have done this. Also, Art Morris has done this. All have been extremely pleased with the decision.

The 800 f5.6 is quite a bit lighter & easier to handle than that huge 600, so it is actually a viable lens for shooting birds in flight handheld.

One photographer told me "the new 800 is the sharpest lens I've ever owned"! And he's owned plenty of L primes.


"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".

I'd take a huge trip and put that gear to use.. Afria, Australia, the Amazon.. You have the gear now go somewhere you can shoot something you've always wanted to shoot.

Or save up a bit more / wait around some and take a look at the new 200-400, looks like a lovely wildlife lens.

James, I am not sure when the lens is being released--perhaps someone else can answer that?

I'd say buy a 24-70 L... Then give it to me, thanks! :D

But if I was lucky enough to have the gear you have, I'd spend some of it on a TSE.
