I'm still trying to figure out the reason for this topic. The original poster asked the question and then went on to list the 6 that you own. Are you trying to figure out who has the bigger...ahhh I mean the most L lens or just what? Might be better to phrase it as what L lens do others own and why?

I have none, but I'm hoping to pick up a 17-35mm f/2.8 L very soon!

Save up a bit more and you'll be able to afford the extra millimeter!

....Once you shoot L, it is hard to compare to others.

I guess you've never tried a Zeiss then?

0! Don't plan on any soon either. Sigma lenses are so appealing...

This has been my experience. I will probably grab a 135 before too long, but I am a big fan of sigma ex lensesas well.


Everything is relative.
Gear: 6D, Unholy Trinity:twisted: (24Lii, sigma 50A, 135L), and for the other ends of the spectrum, sigmaEX 14mm2.8 and sigmaEX 100-300F4.

I just got my first L lens the other day. 70-200mm f/4 non-IS. Got a damn good price on it locally. Actually the seller is a member here. Can't remember what he said his name was.

If you see this, thanks again, it's a very nice lens!

Just two, 24-70L and 17-40L, and will probably pick up either a 70-200 2.8L or 135L come Christmas. Decisions decisions.

I've found this kind of topic on a lot of different forums and websites over the years. They seem to be therapeutic in a way. Generally, people LOVE to talk about themselves, but it's not normal to go about shouting about your shiny new L lens to people on the bus. (Showing photos of your newborn is though, apparently :lol:)

Notice how few replies to replies there are in this thread. But it doesn't matter. It's a hugely popular thread and will continue to be. It's like a big empty room... people walk in, mention that they have a really nice lawn, then leave. They feel better since they spent so much time cutting the darn thing and SOMEONE needed to know about it. But that's just my opinion.

Did I mention that I own 3? :cool:
