As your walk around or what are you gonna be doing? :o

Yeah walk around candid shooting. I like the focal length, considering the canon 50 1.4 but I've read others prefer the sigma

Hahahaha vinz you change lenses like people change their pants lol
Seriously though the 70-200 is a great lens and to be honest there is virtually no difference in image quality from the 24-105 and it's great in the studio, but they are totally different focal lengths.
The 24-105 shines on the 5d as its such a great walk about lens, when I have my kids I go out one lens and a flash and it covers most things. I think you should look at what you shoot and buy lenses for that purpose then you will be happy with what you buy.
Will its a great lens on the 60d as well especially for portraiture.

thanks - yeah - that's what I figure - the convenience & versatility & IQ are quite appealing. ... when not using my 85 or 40.

Yes it's sharp for sure but the 2.8 is just that little bit better. But for the price it is an amazing lens especially in good light and the prints I do of the kids football look great.

the thing with the 2.8 is it's almost twice the weight than the F4.

Yes that's the only downside with it, in my mind I'm like I really want to get the the 2.8 but then I use mine and I'm like "wow this lens rocks I don't need the other" haha. also with the 5d you can up iso and still get great quality in lower light. ( trying to convince myself I don't need the 2.8 haha)
My plan is to go for a prime next year for outdoor portraits probably an 85 1.2 for the bokeh

You guys might be tired of me but now I'm thinking of returning my 24-105 and get the Canon 70-200 f4L non-IS. smaller than the 2.8(lighter to lag around) and the F4 and being a non-IS when use in studio is not an issue, i think.

what do you think?

Non IS and IS f/4 is about the same weight, I'd go ahead and get the IS version if you're gonna get a 70-200 range, better to have it than not I think.

Just on a side note, this forum has totally spoiled me, we are nearly having an IM convo on here, and there is so much activity on all parts of the forum with great answers so fast it is amazing. Most forums are either ghost towns or filled with trolls.

Forget instant messenger, go to POTN!! :D

Canon announces two lenses:

http://www.the-digital-picture.com …mm-f-4-L-IS-USM-Lens.aspx (external link)

there is chatter the 24-105L IS will be discontinued... I'm warming up to the 24-105 more and more as my portraiture zoom on my 60D...

Man you don't know how mad I was when they just announced the 35 f/2 with IS and I had just bought the 35L. LOL

The Sigma version is about $100 more I think but has MUCH creamier bokeh and a bit faster AF ...other than that, Canon's is pretty good but just an old design. You also have to chance it with the Sigma front/back focusing issues, however! I had one on my 60D and loved it too but sold most of my Sigma lenses when going FF.

I don't know I owned both the 70-200 f/4 IS and the 70-200 II now. Yeah the f/4 IS version is lighter but that doesn't mean I wasn't craving the 70-200 II. It's so freakin sharp wide open it's like cutting my skin off my body. Best way I could put it...rofl

Weight doesn't become an issue once you train yourself when you walk around with it. Not to mention I also use the tripod collar as a grip ...or when I wanna go super light I just take it off. I personally prefer bokeh and sharpness in one so the 70-200 II was a great combo. I used f/4 IS mostly outside, but indoors I hated it....thus comes into the story with me primes or f/2.8 glass only.

5D2 + 70-200 II @ f/2.8 (I know this is dorky but I love this more than the shots I ever got out of my 70-200 f/4 IS):

I'm thinking about getting the 24-105 as a walk-around as well, but I do love the 40 on my 5D. Also taking into consideration the Canon 17-40 and the Sigma 24-70. So confused!
