My 24-105 spends a lot of time on my 5D2. My 70-200 is usually on my 1D4. Covers a lot.

complement.

I realized my error shortly after posting the thread. Funny thing is if you search there is a similar thread with the same error:rolleyes:

Does Canon make any large white lenses that covers the general purpose FL? With the amount of compliments I'm going to receive with the 70-200 I like to keep things consistent when I shoot:p

I'm going with the 70-200 siggy 35 combo. It's a little premature but I'll post some pics and my thoughts on the duo once I have enough time to gather some confidence shooting again. I do not recommend taking a 4 year break from photography.

I really like the 17-40L on my 5D2. It is a great little lens. I must admit that I basically stopped using it after I got the 24mm f/1.4L II, though. I could give up the 24L and go back to the 17-40L if I needed to though. 17-40L is that good. In my opinion of course.


5D4 or 6D2..... Waiting to find out which I buy | 8-15L |24-70mm f/4L IS | 24L II | 40mm pancake | 100L IS | 70-200mm f/2.8L IS mk2 | 400mm f/4 DO IS

Only one that I can think of is the Canon 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6L IS

I prefer 35mm. Siggy will works if it is a good copy and has no focus problem. Otherwise 35L for me.
