Since you do not appear to have any links to images I will take your word on it.

Keep in mind that low density sensors do not benefit with "better" lenses beyond a certain point. That point being much lower than higher density sensors. The advantage there is not needing to buy the highest resolving lenses available thereby saving some cash. Not a bad thing, imo.

As far as older tech..... they are only older in their ability to render finer detail and are noisier at higher ISO. All the firmware stuff I really couldn't care less, much like you.

The 70-300L is worth a look for travel.

^- I thought about asking why the dual 1-series bodies before but i figured you had your reasons...

Cause I was going to suggest the Why not get a 1.4x tcon for your 70-200 f/4L and maybe a newer APS-C body like a 50D or something, Which will give you better telephoto capability than your 1D.... but decided that perhaps that wouldnt be an option due to the differing ergonomics

Most of my images are for personal or family use, so I rarely share them on the internet. I am also aware of the sensor restrictions on lenses. Which lenses do you suggest that are not in the highest resolving lenses category?

For me, I really love the convenience of having such similar bodies. I have become extremely familiar and comfortable with the menus and settings, and I love that they share the same batteries and charger. I feel that they are perfect for my needs and compliment each other very well (1D- sports/action 1Ds- everything else). Maybe I'm a little off my rocker, but it works for me and that's all that matters. ;)

You haven't explained your uses other than family pictures. So, assuming family shots, I don't see a need for the 100-400, hence rent it for the trip.

I'd go with this lineup, 17-40, Tamron 28-75, 70-200. Although there appears to be overlap between the 17-40/28-75 I think you will find that it will be clear which lens to mount depending on the circumstances.

If you can only go with 2 lenses, keep the 70-200 and maybe get the 24-105. Everybody has different "styles" and preferences.

You haven't been specific as to your needs.

I am a non-professional photographer and I mostly shoot family portraits, but I plan on getting into landscape and real estate photography as well as some general birding (Hence the wide angle and telephoto). This is just a hobby, but I enjoy it very much, so I don't mind giving up some other ones to help fund new equipment.

+1 thought I would also add the 1.4 TC. I have the 24-105 which is a great lens, but ever since I purchased the 17-40 I find that it is the one I am using for family type photos of events and day trips.

After digging through the Lens Sample Photo Archive, I think 24-105 & 100-400 are my best bet. And, if I need to go wider, a Samyang/Rokinon 14mm will be purchased.

If your going to Alaska you'll want that 17-40.
This was taken with 17-40 on a FF 5d.
