I have only the Canon 60D with kit lens (17-135mm) and nifty-fifty, so I have a lot of things to get, but not enough funds:p

But this year I will definitely get at least these 2 things.
1) Canon 17-55mm f2.8 IS. I am definitely getting this no matter what, need a good walk-around lens.
2) 7d mk2 body or the Canon 70-200mm f2.8 L IS mk 2 lens. Very hard choice, very very hard, the best zoom lens canon has or the new body. Of course if they never release 7d mk2 then I will just buy the lens instead :)

Next year.
Yes I have long-term plans haha.:p
1) Canon 100mm L Macro.
2) 85 or 135 L for premium portrait lens.


Camera - 2x5Dmk3, C100 mkii, 70D, 60D
Lenses - 24-70mm f2.8L II, 70-200mm f2.8L IS ii, 85mm f1.2L II, 35mm f1.4 ART, 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS
Lighting - 3 x 600EX RT's, Printer - Epson 3880

85L based on what you currently have listed in your signature.
Or the 24L II to replace your 24-70 f4

Canon 24mm f/2.8 IS has been calling my name and after owning the 35 f/2 IS I my have to answer.

While the 24mm IS may be nice, I vote for the 24L II 1.4 it is much faster than the 2.8 and lightening quick to focus.
I had the 17-55mm IS and it is great, but I don't find a NEED for IS in my 24mm lens. Just giving you ideas in the head ;)

24L II always on my wish list, or maybe 50L or 135L. The 85L is most expensive among these fast prime, will be my last choice. Maybe will looking for Zeiss, but first i need win a lottery first!

-Kipon Baveyes in EF to FX mount (basically a chinese/german speedbooster for my Fuji) whenever it comes out
-Samyang 35/1.4 (once I sell my EF 35/2)
-Fujinon 35/1.4 R (unless the Baveyes works really well for me)
-Some wide angle prime... haven't decided which. Possibly the Samyang 16mm for the Fuji, 24/1.4 for the 6D or the EF 20/2.8
-135L... if I can make enough money shooting this year, crossing my fingers :)

These are my goals right now, in no particular order... other than the 35/1.4 Samyang, that I'm buying as soon as I sell my current 35mm.


Fuji X-Pro2 // Fuji X-T1 // Fuji X-100T // XF 18mm f2 // XF 35mm f1.4 // XF 60mm f2.4 // Rokinon 12mm f2 // Rokinon 21mm f1.4 // XF 18-55mm f/2.8-4 // XF 55-200mm f3.5-4.8 // Rokinon 85mm f1.4 // Zhonghi Lensturbo ii // Various adapted MF lenses

I just picked up a 24-70 2.8 ii, which was the big one on my list for this year.

I'll be picking up one more lens, and I'm a bit undecided at this point. It could be the Zeiss Distagon 21mm f/2.8 ZE, the EF 8-15mm f/4L Fisheye USM, a 17 or 24mm Canon TS-E (really struggling between the two). . . or maybe even a Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L II USM.

One thing is for sure . . . it'll be wide. I'm presently leaning towards the Zeiss.

The 24L would be my first choice also but on a fixed income (SS) means I must chose my choices wisely. 2.8 is plenty fast enough for landscapes.

Most likely a 50 of some flavor to replace my Nifty Fifty; maybe even something in the 55-58mm range if I decide to go with a vintage model.

I've been staring at Zeiss Planars now for a while, but have put that on hold for a while until I stuff a little more money in to the fun fund. It will likely come down to that and a more idiot proof lens, so I'll probably rent one of those and the Sigma 50A over a weekend to see which works the best for me.

However, since I have a 35, and a midrange zoom which really well covers the normal lens range, maybe I need to think a little bit more out of the box and go for something a little more exotic. Perhaps a 24 or 45 TS-E would be interesting....

So many choices, so little money.


5d ii, 17-40 f/4, 24-105 f/4, 35 f/2.0 ze distagon, 50 f/1.4 ze planar, 50 f/1.8, 70-200 f/4 is, 135 f/3.5 sonnar, 420ex, 430ex ii
