My 24-105 is parked on my 5DmkII, but my favorite zoom is the 100-400 though I find I am using it mostly at 400. Perhaps, I should get a 400mm prime!

This is almost my situation exactly except on a 60D. By far my farvourite zoom is 100-400 used 95% of the time from 300-400. But I can understand if you live in NY City why a 50mm could actually be MORE versatile.

If I could justify owning (spending the money) the 400 2.8 I would but the 400 5.6 prime just does'nt offer enough for me to trade in the 100-400.

It all comes down to what you shoot, I love primes, all the lenses on my buy list are primes, but when covering events or shooting weddings I still have to bring my 24-70mm.

400mm in a 60d ? that's for sport/wildlife or naked neighbours...

I've got a 24-105 f4 L, 70-200 f2.8 IS L, 100-400 IS L and a Sigma 150-500 OS and I love them all. As for primes I have a 50 1.8 and a 100 2.8 L macro and am saving for a 30 and 85 but I really wouldn't want to limit myself to only 1 type of lens. If they make 'em, you might as well use 'em!
