35L

6 months into having a 5D Mark II. Had to sacrifice a 50 1.4 to offset a (tiny) bit of the cost, so meh. The 35L is so tasty! A friend I shoot weddings with let me use hers to get shots from a balcony during a ceremony while she toted a rented 70-200. I was immediately hooked.

My name is Ron and I am an L-o'holic. I got my first taste of L glass last month with the help of the sale board on POTN. It was a 70-200 f4 non is. It has not come off my camera (T3i) since receiving it. I am currently looking at several other members of the L family to add to my current collection of 1.
Trying to decide if I want to go wide or longer?
I love my non L primes, but man is there a difference in L images? I will definitely be selling my 'kit' lenses very soon to get me closer to the next member of the L family once I figure out what I want.

My first L was a 100-400 so I could shoot birds in the pond in my back yard. Here's a photo I took with it just a couple of days ago:

My first L-lens was FDn 300 mm F4 L for about 35 years ago.
I used it with my much loved Canon F1N AE (still going strong).....:p
Now I only use L-lenses expect for EFs 10-22mm with EOS 7D and 40D (40D soon replaced with 70)

I got my first L lens after about 6-8 months of getting into photography. It was the 70-200 2.8 IS II. Just got the 24-70 2.8 II last week ;).

I think i caught the L bug

First DSLR was 09/07. First L lens 10/10 (100-400mm). Fortunately, not a major sacrifice. Since then I have added 6 other Ls and have sold 1 (400mm prime). Prefer the flexibility of the 100-400. And, of those I have now if imhad to sell all but one my first would be the last to go. I love it that much.

My first L lens is the 24-70 mk i

Sold the lens for a slight profit and upgraded to the refurbished 24-70 MKII for only $100 more. SCORE!

After saying I'd probably never own an "L", my first was the 70-200 2.8L IS v.1 ... which I still have and started the "L" obsession :P
