It used to be 10-22, 17-55, 55-250, 50 f/1.8 and 500 f/8 (forget the brand). I was pretty happy with that setup for a long time.

Going FF, it's now 17-40, 24-105, 70-200 II, 100-400 and 85 f/1.8. I sometimes think about getting rid of all the rest. But I have a hard time letting go of my little tubular friends.

Having no desire to go FF, I have the
10-22
15-85
18-200
35f2
50f1.8Mk1
100-400L
200f2.8L
They all work great. Don't plan on changing any of them. Yes I know its 7, so scratch the 18-200 & the 50 if we must get down to 5.

Would like to have something longer, 600 or more that is affordable (good luck with that) for my next purchase. Maybe a 400f5.6 with 2x TC, just not sure if manual focus and the IQ would be acceptable to me.

My current lenses in my LowePro Pro Runner X450 are pretty much realistic for me.

24-105 f4 IS
17-40 f4
70-200 f2.8 IS
100 f2.8 IS macro
400 f4 DO

Ideally, I would replace my 17-40 with TS-E 17 or TS-E 24
My mind is willing to do so, but my wallet is bruised & hollow.

While i like the 17-40L; I'd sell it tomorrow for a 14-24. (I'm tempted to get an adapter and buy the nikkor; but for the price I'd like native)
