17-55mmm f/2.8 IS about 50%
70-200mm f/4L IS about 40%
The rest of my lenses about 10%

The lens that I most often use is by far the EF 24-105mm F/4L IS USM


Kind regards

I also love the EF 24-105 f/4L IS for travel. While it needs a bit more light always dead on and much lighter than the 24-70mm f/2.8L. I have carried the 70-200mm f/2.8 quite a few times but on the 40D the 70mm minimum can be a bit long at times. I envy you guys with the 5D Mark II and 70-200 combo, that must be sweet!

PS - I took several trips with the 100-400mm in the bag and rarely removed it so it usually stays home now for vacations.


Canon 40D and 7D. Canon 10-22mm f/3.5, 50mm f/1.4, 24-105mm f/4L, 18-200mm f/3.5, 100-400 f/4.5L

It was the 85LII the last few months, but sadly it is gone. Maybe the 35L will take it's place.

I feel naked without my 50mm 1.4. Hopefully the 85L will replace it soon.

70-200 f/4L is on my camera 90% of the time these days, 50 1.8 if I need something small so I can chuck my camera in my bag (not camera bag) to go get some snapshots and very very occasionally my 17-35 for the occasional time when I need a wide angle.

Either 100-400L or 200L--depending on available light.

EX 24 f/1.8

I'm hoping to get the Sigmalux soon, that will likely be my main lens.


[50D/BGE2] -> [580 EXII / Cactus V4] -> [28mm f/1.8EX] or [70-200mm f/4L] or [50mm f/1.4EX]
