I'm new here. I've been lurking for a while and this is a great community for sure.
I have a T1i and the birth of our first son precipitated my interest into more "serious" photography.
In order to get good shots of him indoors I got a 35L as a good compromise (between the 24 and 50).
I also got a 100L because I love taking macro shots and it also doubles nicely as a telephoto in my T1i.
Now, I must say that my plans are to upgrade to a 5DII whenever the III comes out and my choice of lenses was made with that in mind. I may complement this prime set with a 50/1.4 once I move to FF but for now it should be ok for most of the cases.
so with this in mind which zoom would you get to complement the 35 and 100?
I must say that I'm completely amazed by the change in quality that I got after getting the L primes and this has created a bit of a L bias for me. I always chose quality over quantity so I prefer to have less pieces but have them be premium quality.
I think the best option for a crop sensor is the 17-55IS. Most reviews are excellent and covers the range I'm looking for. However...it's a EF-S and is bound to become "obsolete" once I get the 5DII...so I'm wondering if a good compromise for now wouldn't be to get something like the 17-40L that then later can be used as a wide angle.
Also, should mention that I'm looking mainly to use this zoom for travel and outdoor shooting. Mostly in day light as well although low light occasions always show up.
Well, apologies for the rambling...just wanted to get some opinions on this.
