Hey everyone, sorry to bug you with another lens question but I'm very torn about this one.
I'm going on a longer backpacking trip soon and I realized I both need more money for it and more room in my backpack (well, atleast more money). Currently I have a Canon EF 17-40L, 70-200f/4L, a 50mm 1.8 and a 5D. If I could get away as cheap as possible it would be great. I don't really need anything else but a lense(s) around the 24-100 range. So how would one go about this? I'd just buy the Sigma 24-70 2.8 and be satisfied with it but it's filtersize is 82mm, which would mean I'd have to buy new filters and filter rings for $300 or more.
I'd prefer something with atleast 24mm wideangle because I do mostly landscape. I rarely ever use anything above about 100 mm. I sometimes do some street-esque shots, but that's mostly with my Panasonic LX2 compact camera (although it would be nice to have a 5D and a 24- zoom for that too).
Here's a nerdy table I put together with choices I have. Feel free to suggest some yourselves
Option: Sell | Buy | "Profit"
#1 17-40 + 70-200 | Tamron 24-135 | ~$700 [/U]
[U] #2 17-40 | Sigma 24-60 2.8 | ~$400 [/U]
[U] #3 17-40 + 70-200 | Canon EF 24-105 | ~$350 [/U]
