Ok I have a little money to play with and want to change my lens line up. I currently have what's in my signature and just added a Canon 24mm f/2.8 and 30mm f/2 just because I'm a sucker for a good deal. I want to sell my Sigma 70-200 f/2.8 and go for the Canon with IS. While the Tamron 17-50 f/2.8 is ok im looking to upgrade that as well. What suggestions can you guys/gals make? I mostly shoot sports action shots, a lot of T&I and the occasional wedding.

Just a suggestion.

Get rid of the 28-135/18-55/17-50

Replace with the 24-105 and 17-55

or

24-70 for the 2.8 and keep WA's you just bought.

You could also

get rid of the 24/30/28-135/17-50

and get the 24-70 and a UW

which would leave you with

UW/24-70/70-200/85/50

Less stuff to carry and less lens changes.


Bohdan - I may be, and probably am, completely wrong.

you could sell all your sigmas, your canon telephoto and that kit lens, and even the 28-135 to fund a canon 70-200 2.8 is. That's what I'd do.

I'm definitely going to keep the 70-200 f/4 (love it) and the 85mm F/1.8. I haven't played with either of my new primes yet (24&35) so I'll probably keep them too. You have good point on all the sigs tho.
