Ok if you could only keep one lens out of your entire line up which would it be?
Mine would be the 24-105L ..because I have so many kids that I shoot alot in tight quarters and the 70-200 wouldn't work and the 85 would be too confining...


EOS 5DMKII gripped;EOS 7D;30D:Rebel Xti Digital;24-105L,70-200 f/2.8L.II,85mm f1.2L.II,16-35Lmk2, SP AF90mmF/2.8DI,28-135mm x 2,580EX II-430ExII with Pocket Wizards II,(Adobe CS5)

EF-S 60mm for Underwater Macro on a crop it is money. But I want to keep my Tokina 10-17 for UW CFWA. So I can't just keep one I guess:confused:

I can't believe I am saying this, 24-70L. It is my most versatile and least favorite.

Tossing between 50L and 70-200L II, I think I will pick 70-200L II. The AF speed on 50L in low light is not that great.

I would say probably the 24-105 for the useful focal length range but I'd really miss my 50/1.4.

Without any doubt, my most versatile lens (days/nights, indoor/outdoor, portrait/sport/landsca​pe) 85L ... actually sticked on a 1DMKIII I don't know if I will find a tool to disassemble this combo :lol:
