I recently posted for some advice on the 5D MKII vs the MKIII. I received some great advice and made up my mind that the MKIII is worth the extra money for its focusing system and added video features like audio monitoring, reduced moire/aliasing and also lower noise levels at higher ISOs.
Now I'm contemplating a lens to accompany it. I partake in both video and photo work - I consider myself more of a videographer but really I do both about the same amount.
The 24-70 f2.8L II USM sounds like it's ideal for the kind of work I do, but it's lack of image stabilization puts me off as I'm aware of what a difference it makes during video.
I originally thought about going for the 24-105mm f4L IS, but I think it might be a bit slow because I find myself shooting people indoors 99% of the time - whether it be videos or photos.
I'd really like a zoom lens to save having to swap glass constantly, but to have fast glass with IS it looks like I'm going to have to look at primes. My main requirements are that they should be at least f2.8 and have IS. I think a 35mm and 80mm would suit my requirements, as I find that I like to use 18mm and 50mm on my crop sensor a lot (equivalent of 28.8mm and 80mm).
Does anyone have any other thoughts? All opinions appreciated
