dont you guys think 85mm is too narrow angle of view for a crop? the 85mm is usually for portraiture on a FF body... but on a crop body, its just way too tight and hard to hand hold no?

Then what is "135mm" useful for on FF ???

There isn't a "trinity" of primes for APS-C, there is barely even a duopoly unless you like normal-portrait (30/85). A three lens set is either a mix of zooms and primes, or the UWA-WALKAROUND-TELE combo... of which I think the 11-16/2.8, 17-55/2.8IS, 70-200/4IS (better be, the 7D pixel density is fierce) makes the most sense.

Jeeze... the further I get from APS-C the more I cringe at the thought of ever going back. :mad:

My feelings exactly .. Until I picked up a 7D to complement my 5D-II. Now all my FF lenses have instantly become versatile having dual FL possibilities. For example, the 50L becomes a nice short tele with much less weight compared to my 85L-II (sacrificing sharpness of course) etc etc .. Totally enjoying the vast range of lens/FL possibilities with my FF/Crop combo. Cheers.

You are all probably tired of my suggestions for a trio since they all are Leica APO lenses.

for me 17-55 , 70-200 2.8 IS and 100-400 I need the the faster glass at <200mm for my shooting. 70-200 f4IS is great when I am outdoors.

I agree with Ed from page 1, other than the ef 10-22. The tokina 11-16 is the best uwa for crop canons

I see a lot of votes for the 10-22. Wouldn't a "trinity" be more of a set of more regular use lenses vs. specialty? I love my 10-22, but have to admit that the 17 end of my 17-55 ends up being enough for most wide angle work and my 10-22 doesnt' get used so much. Curious if others are using it more day-to-day than me and for what.

10-22, 17-55 IS and the 70-200 2.8.

The 10-22 doesn't get used as much as the other two but the keepers from it end up on the wall. Great lens.

10-22 is good. The 11-16 tokina is fantastic. It's got better color, sharpness, and speed.

Stop recommending it. Off brand lenses are nice too.

The copies I've handled the only thing the canon wins out on is AF noise, i think it's MFD is shorter too.

Really Surprised nobody has mentioned the Sigma 30 1.4 yet. It is a great lens.

I have the 17-55 IS and 70-200 2.8 IS, and find that that range covers most of what I need. I have a Tokina 10-17 fisheye, but I use that for mostly concert photography, and architecture, I don't find myself needing a wider zoom (10-22) for landscape or other shots.

I would, however, love an 85 1.2 . If I didn't need a new computer (mine is 6.5 yrs old) and plan on getting a 7D, I would definitely get an 85 1.2 next.


5D3, lenses, tripod, and a flash.

I think it's a case of YMMV. When I use my 10-20, I'm definitely at the wide end much more than the long end. I'd love to have the 11-16 because of its optics and speed - but I would keep the Sigma because of its range.
