Unreasonable? No....potentially still missing something? Absolutely. No true macro included; no really shallow DoF available; all may struggle for handheld, low-light shooting; etc

I've built up 4 lenses, plus specialty lens (macro)[See signature] which is a pretty great working kit for me; so far. I'll pick up other specialty lenses (most likely a couple of wide-ish primes) as I find them necessar

I didn't think it really mattered what body I used since most SLRs can accommodate most interchangeable lenses. But, if it's important to know, the 60D is what I use.

Thanks

I love the 24-105 on a crop or FF body. But, It does not have a wide angle field of view on a crop. So where as it may be wide enough on my FF, it will not be on my crop.

I understand the terms and their uses in perhaps a photo imaging software, but in direct relations to the camera other than what I may think, I may be obviously wrong. View finder image?

The basic difference is the physical size of the sensor.
FF/Full Frame is the size of a 35mm film camera.
So called "Crop" is smaller, APS-c size in film camera.

How the differences relate to the lenses is a whole different story.

Why 3 lenses? What's wrong with just a single 8-1000mm f1.0?

I have only three lenses for my 20D:

16-35 f/2.8L
24-70 f/2.8L
70-200 f/2.8L IS

All lenses were purchased at the same time as my 20D, so none are the "Mark II" versions.

I also have a Canon 1.4x teleconverter.

I cannot remember seriously wishing I had any other lenses. Yes, it would be nice to have a very long lens at times but that just isn't in the cards. I can use my old Nikkor lenses that I've had since the mid 1960s but they are manual focus and manual aperture lenses.

:lol: Do they make such a lens? More so, do they make such a lens where it won't cost me my house in order to purchase? :lol:

I don't think many people would be looking to change if they had that combo...

No such thing - plus in order to achieve that f/1.0 aperture the diameter would likely be a couple of feet and you'd need a truck just to tote the lens ;).

At the moment I am using:

24-70
70-200
100-400

and find that these cover most areas of what I shoot. Have been thinking of extending the wide end with a 17-40 but that's from a want perspective rather than a need.
