Hey guys,

So I've got some funds to spend and was hoping if you all would help me spend it (so to speak). I have the Mark II and III with 24-70, 50 1.4, 85L and 135L. I mostly shoot portraits but I shoot a bit of everything else. I've narrowed it down to the three following lens.

17mm Tse. I do a bit of landscape and my primary lens for that is the 24-70. I would love to get into architecture too so this is the lens to get. I could always slap on a extender if 17 is too wide.

35L. I have always wanted this lens. But i hate to buy it if there was an updated version coming soon. Of course the 35mm is in 24-70 FL but I never seem to have love for that lens. I rather us my 85L but sometimes I just need wider.

70-200 2.8 IS. Obviously the 135L is comparable with this lens. I do the odd sports and weddings now and again and think the versatility will be convienent.

What do you guys think ?

;-)a

How about a 16-35? or an 8-15 Fisheye? Those would both cover some ground that you cant with your current collection. I, myself, had an 8-15 and sold it. Its a really nice lens, but not that practical. However, i have a 16-35 and LOVE IT!!! Just my 2 pennies.

You have to decide..sports/wedding​s or architecture/landscape​? The TS-E17 will rock that end of the spectrum, or the 70-200 IS II will be a definite improvement in sports.

My 70-200 is my favorite lens... it's the range i suggest everyone get. I use it all the time. More than anything else.
