I am currently using a Canon EOS 50D with the kit lens 17-85mm USM IS 4/5.6, a 50mm 1.8 and a 580 EX II flashgun.
I am considering stepping up my gear and spend a bit of money on the 24-70mm L 2.8, ideally to become my main gear and replace the 17-85. Thoughts about it?
Also, I noticed how the 50mm is great for portraits but a bit too tight for a walk around lens. Any idea on what to replace it with that might be a nice complement for the 24-70? If you still believe the 24-70 is a sensible solution (priority being sharpness and IQ).
I would probably use more wideangle than tele, to be honest.
In summary: one expensive lens + a cheaper normal lens and/or perhaps a wideangle.
Suggestions on what to get?
