24, 50, 85?

It will be the same as any other APS-C IMO. If 7D has super resolving powers with its packed CMOS, then I'd go for L versions of the above.

Because the 70-200mm f/4 IS L is "Holier-than-thou"...;)

I sure hope you're right, 'cause that's what I own (with the 100 and 100-400 as well), and my 7D is on preorder...

Too big, too heavy, not enough reach for the weight and size.

good choice :D. with those three lenses you're covered for all general shooting....you'll never wonder or ask which lenses you should take.

and then add your specialty lenses like the 100-400L or long prime or macro :D.

Looks about right.

I know they aren't primes, but I agree wholeheartedly here.
