is defiantly replace my 70-2300 f2,8 L Is, and probably my 85 mm f1,8.

I would WANT to replace my 24-70 mm f2,8 L but this time i will try 10-15 copies first to make sure i get one that performs to spec. i probably have more chance of winning the lottery than getting a 'good copy' of the 24-70 f2,8 L !

That 70-2300 f/2.8 L IS. must be a new lense. Is it heavy ?

I'd buy the same set again I currently have, except for the old non-Canon MF lenses - I don't really care about those, except maybe for the Leica R 60.

Kind regards, Wim

If 5 for APS-C, the same as my sig, plus the 30 f1.4, which I also have.

Ask me again in a year and I am sure I will have a more informed answer. But for now I would say 24-105L, 70-200 f2.8L IS, 14L, Canon 500D closeup (77mm) and Lensbaby Composer.

For the same cost, I'd almost certainly end up with the same kit. I've owned a TON of lenses, and bought and sold over and over, and what I have now fits my shooting needs, and provides the best balance of image quality and affordability across the line, while giving me the range of lenses I need for what I shoot.

Well of course I would want or need it all!
I guess start out with..
5D Mark II , 16-35L II, 35L, 85L, 24-105L, 300L 2.8, 100-400L., 1.4 ext.
I hope my Insurance will cover it!
Ask me again next year and I'll probably have all this in addition to what I have now.

Always looking forward to my next shoot.
Gear- Canon Bodies- 5D Mark II , 50D both gripped -- Lens - 300L F.28 IS, 70-200L F2.8 IS II, 24-105L IS and a 35L F1.4. , WHAT'S NEXT

  • 17-40mm -or- 12-24mm
  • 24L
  • 100-400mm


5 lenses:
  • 24L
  • sigmalux

This is a pertinent thread for me since I just purchased my 1st DSLR. I haven't decided for sure but as of now I have the 17-40 and 24-105. I am trying to settle on a telezoom and I'm considering the following: 100-400, 300 f/4 or 400 f/5.6.


5D, 17-40L, 70-200L F/4 IS, 100-400L, 100 Macro, 50 F/1.8, Extender 1.4x II, Gitzo 1541 w/Markins Q3, 430 EX II

I have to say I really love most of the glass I own, and inevitably would just get it again.

But as far order it would definitely be different from how I did the first time.

I'd start with...
Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8
Canon EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM
Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L IS USM
Peleng 8mm f/3.5 Circular Fisheye
SMC Pentax 1:1.2 50mm
Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro USM
