You won't regret it. :)

Also, Camas is soooo boring. How do you plan to use it, mostly wild life?

1 year after I got my frirs DSLR the 400D, I replaced it with my 40D, and with the 40D I purchased the 70-200 f/4 IS L USM.

Whad did I sacrifice?!
A used car, that I did NOT buy, becuase I purchased the lens :)

Just picked up a 24-105L. Now to find a suitable replacement for my EF 70-210 F4 from 1988:) Would love to get the 70-200 2.8 IS mkII, but that will have to wait.

Looking to make the switch to full frame with a Canon 6D and maybe a 17-40L would be in order also.

I too just picked up a 24-105L....2 actually. Oops! Once they both show up looks like I'll do a quick turnaround sale on one of them.

Now eyes forward to next L...135L look out!

Search for the 80-200/2.8 L "Magic Drainpipe". No IS, and does not work together with the Canon 1.4x and 2.0x teleconverters (but with some third-party ones), but it DOES have f/2.8 at below f/4.0 price :-)

Had that lens, it got stolen, now looking for new one....


some cameras, some lenses,
and still a lot of things to learn...
(so post processing examples on my images are welcome :D)

It would seem to me that the three telephoto zooms that you have do the same job. Do you use them all?
