Actually, it would be two lenses: the 10-22 and 17-85 EFS lenses that ended up going as a package with my 20D. I've been doing a lot of real estate photography lately, and they would have been ideal---much lighter and faster handling than my 1D/1Ds with 16-35L and 24-105L.


I'm not short. I'm concentrated awesome!

Am I wrong, or do you own a tilt-shift lens? Isn't that really the best lens for real estate work?

The lens I regret having gotten rid of most was my 1200mm F1.0

I traded it to Ronald for six-hundred-fifty-three 24-70's.:lol:

I do have the 24mm version, and it's probably a great lens for architectural work, but what I'm doing is taking snapshots of new houses currently under construction, and emailing them to clients. It really isn't a situation that calls for much care, let along sophisticated equipment.

Well, that's your chance to get a 400D and 10-22 as 'light combo', then.
Go ahead, you know you want to do it :lol:

I sold a 35mm Summicron that was made for a custom order for a very wealthy lawyer, it was a 35mm 1.4...and it's the only one ever made.....all 1.4's are Summilux's..I sold it to a collector cause I got a 35 Summicron from Kertesz as a gift and never took it off my camera.......still have it and the camera.....but I sure would like that 1.4 Summicron back.......must be worth a fortune now.....don



And I my Noctilux, Summilux 35 ASPH and The Razor, the 90mm AA.

I don't miss a Canon lens at all- I've only gotten rid of a few, and none of 'em were particularly good.

Had rotten luck with a 28mm f/1.8. Couldn't find a sharp one: went through 4 in the store until I found one that worked with the 10D. The lack of a fast, bright prime lens for smaller-than-135 film cameras made my choice much easier in the long run- get rid of the 10D... And I did.
The 50mm f/1.8 left at that time too. Not a horrible lens. Not a great one either. Can't say as to miss it. The 50 f/1.4 is a much better lens (and the Summilux 50mm ASPH is much better, yet!). I'd not miss it, though, either, if I got the f/1.2.

Once I got back into digital (Leica traded for the 5D):
I had a 20mm a little while ago. It's a nice lens, for someone else, I'm sure. I *like* the vignetting, and it was sharp enough, but since it was such a general pain-in-the-butt, I got rid of it (for the 16-35mm f/2.8: a better lens all-the-way around). Didn't regret it.

An old FD 17mm f4 was sold to fund for an ex girlfriends birthday present. Couple of weeks later i needed it for a wedding and a few weeks after that we split up. I also moved on an FD circular fisheye (8mm?) for peanuts then was offered more than the shop I sold it to got for it.ߘ
