I was stuck on one lens, and found that in time it can dull creativity.

It took a while to force myself back into creative thinking by using other lenses.

I'd need two bodies, cant decide between 70-200 2.8 L IS, and the 50 1.2 L

I actually hate my 24-70 L 9 shots out of 10, would get rid of it in a minute if it wasn't such a useful focal length, and that every once in a while where it just strikes gold.

24-105 F4L...basically because it can shoot wide landscapes, portraits with creamy backgrounds, and macro too. Also 3 stops of IS helps on the inside shots.

Ever since I went FF, been having a very hard time prying the 24-70 off my camera. Great portrait lens, and great environmental lens as well. I was shooting with my prime yesterday, and other than weight savings, the flexibility was severely limited. I'll favor the prime to get lowlight + dof shots, but I'm finding that the DOF @70mm F2.8 to be thin enough. It still has use, but with the addition of VC to the 24-70, there is less reason to be bothered with primes.

the 24-70 will be on my camera 90% of the time, and everything else 10%....

135L on my 5D. I use it more than I should simply because of the amazing images it makes.

Right now I have ended up with an almost equal number of bodies and lenses, so generally once I am set up for the day I never had to change any lenses. :lol:
