$1300 really opens up the candy store to a variety of exotic goodies. I would say depending on what you need obviously for your style more but myself I would be picking from: 35L, Sigma 85 F/1.4, 135L, 300 F/4 IS OR just go to Vegas for two days :D

Earlier this year I did have that in my pocket and I bought a 300mm f/4L IS. I'm very happy with the purchase! The next time it happens, I'll go get either a 50mm f/1.2L or a 135mm f/2L. 50mm is my favourite focal length, so the 50mm f/1.2 is ahead at the moment. I see such great images from the 135mm though. It's really worth consideration!

Im not sure if this is a good idea, what if i sell my canon 7d and add my extra money to get 5dmk2?

are you looking for advice for yourself?...or just a general what would you do kinda question?...if it's advice for yourself you need to tell everyone what you want to accomplish...what you are lacking now...give more insight than what you've given so far


if you shoot landscapes, and i shoot wildlife...we are going to spend the $1300 in entirely different ways...

Or just get a Hartblei or two!

Anyhow, for portraits, $1300 could get a nice Sigma 85mm f/1.4 and have some money left over to improve your studio.

For landscapes, it would be cool to get a Zeiss Distagon T* 28mm f/2.

I'd be looking at a Sigma 150-500mmm, but that's for the kind of things I do...
