Welp, here I am again.
Last: just landed a good deal on a new 24-70 II.
Next: an 85L of some sort, maybe. Probably not, but maybe...
I've been putting off owning a 24-70 for a long time, as I've just never seen the point of it's dull focal range. My 16-35, 50mm, and 70-200 do everything better than what I'd use a 24-70 to do... but you know what? Just having a 1-lens setup sounds better and better as life goes by: I don't shoot super wide angle shots, so my 16-35 might be off to a new home, and though I'm way past the razor-thin DOF bokeh-liscious phase, I'll def be keeping my 50L.
Not to mention: I'll use this 24-70 for my business, and I have my first child on the way. Makes it easy to justify w/ the wife
