a set of kenko extension tubes along with your 50 f/1.4 is perfect for baby feet/hands, etc.

If you have a flash and the 50, you're all set. I had those along with a 430EX in the delivery room and had great results. I don't think you need to buy anything until the kid starts playing soccer. :)

congratulations!

thanks for the advice, I will definately look into that.

Hey Byunts, how's the 5D treating ya? Congrats, Congrats.... Congrats. I wish I had such good gear when I had my kids.

I think a super wide angle and provide a cool and artistic looks with your baby. For example, supersize the foot, reaching out for toy as if it's almost touching you. Secondly, I'm sure you'll have lots of family, friends function indoors and you're going to need that coverage up close.

So, 16-35L (ver I or II)

Good luck and sleep well. Don't forget to show some pics.

I'm doing well for now, thanks for asking :) The 5D is incredible, I recently took it Paris and got some really nice shots with it. I'm planning to take it through its paces when the baby comes.

16-35 sounds nice, but more than I want to spend. maybe someday, although a 17-40L seems like a cheaper alternative although it doesn't have the extra f-stop.

I think you need to take into consideration size of the house and rooms you will be shooting in. I've got a 7 week old girl, and was shooting with a 50 and 85 combo. My house is not huge, but not tiny either, but kept finding that with the 85 (even though I loved it) was just to long and I was backing into walls. I sold it and acquired a Sig30. Now keep in mind I'm on a crop, so on FF, a 50/85 combo would probably work great.
