Got the trinity. Now go and use them. ;)

For travel, I like the 35L. It's light, and great for night photography. You don't really have to have a lens just for travel. You can use what you got :D

I really dig the 10-22 at 10mm on the 7D so this post leans toward the 16-35 for your full frame.

If what you are looking for is a high quality wide angle, go with the TSE 17 or 24. Or a Zeiss 21. Or a Zuiko 21.
The zoom is not in the same league.
The 24 1.4 is nice if you plan to handhold in low light, but if you have time to shoot and set up a tripod the other primes are a better option. The other obvious advantage if you are going to shoot fast is the AF.
If you are looking for something to replace all your lenses go with the 24-70 -tried it recently and was impressed with the quality of this lens.
So it all depends on what you want out of your new lens.

Honestly, if you are shooting with those primes right now...you won't be happy with the 16-35L II at all.

I find the 16-35Lmk2 to have micro contrast "almost" equiv to a 24Lmk2. At f/2.8 I'd say that zoom has just as much micro contrast as the aging 35L.

I have the trinity and the 24L II. I would trade your 35L for a 24L and keep your 50. For me, the 24L is just an unbeatable lens, It does everything that your 35 does only slightly better, with a more dynamic, wide angle view. The 24-70 II would also be an awesome lens, still goes wide, and is sharp and versatile.

Since you seem to be a "prime L guy", I'd say get the 24 L. It's really a fun lens to use.

My first response to the title was: Now What? ..... GO SHOOT!

But yes a 16-35 would fit nicely in your bag.


Hahah are you me? I had the exact same thought and vote. GO SHOOT when you're in the field and you say to yourself, "Damn, I wish I had X lens" make a note of every time you say that and buy whichever lens you are 'missing' the most.

Good choice. But it won't get used much! That's why the holy trinity is holy. Good luck.

That's why I got it in the first place :) Yea, let's see how often the 16-35 will be used in battle, for sure I will be mainly using the trinity, specially for portraits.

I think a UWA lens is essential for travel regardless of where your going.

The 16-35Lmk2 is my goto lens for walk around to travel. The 24Lmk2 is also another lens I use for indoor situations where I dont want to disturb people surrounding me. If I had to get rid of a wide prime I'd let the 35L go way before even considering selling my 24Lmk2.

Its very difficult to decide on lenses since longer FL are handy as well as wide angle.

If you want to sacrifice 16mm-23mm the best coverage would be the 24-70Lmk2. The thing is I've accomplished many of my favourite photos with an UWA when on trips.

buy 2 :)

I second everything Alan said. The 16-35 is also my essential travel lens. The thing about travel and lens choices is that you have to find a balance so you bring just enough to cover most situations but think minimal. For me, a body and 3 lenses is pushing the limit for comfort. It is just heavy and becomes a PITA especially if you're going to walk a lot (like NYC).

A body and 2 lenses is perfect where the 16-35 becomes the main lens. Throw in a 50 and you're golden for pretty much anything you want to photograph. I also would hate swapping lenses every few minutes so a bag full of primes for travel would definitely irritate you and take away from enjoying the places you're visiting.

So yes, a 16-35 or 24-70 and wide to normal prime would be ideal.

A ts-e would be my very LAST choice for travel.

To each their own. The colours and quality out of the TS lenses is second to none. Most wide angle zooms are used at their widest setting negating any real advantage over a prime. The 17mm TS isn't a light lens and needs some added care with the front element but spends a disproportionate amount of time on the front of my 5D when I'm travelling. The difference between a 24mm and 17mm is huge. 24mm to 35mm not so much.

good choice as you have NO wide angle.
