Got to be the 300mm f/2.8L IS MkII for me even though it's not out yet. But even then it'll be a while until the price comes down to a realistic level.

Right now I am strongly considering the Tamron AF18-270MM F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD (external link). This lens seems to be just what I am looking for right now.

I really want a single lense that has a long zoom factor, solid image quality, and without going too expensive. I only have the kit lens that came with my Rebel XS at the moment, and this seems like an excellent lens to start off my collection.

What about everyone else? Which lens do you long to add to your collection?

is there a point to a DSLR if all you want to use a 1-lens-fits-all approach?

I'm assuming that you have the 18-55 IS kit lens... just add the 55-250 IS lens (I suspect it will be cheaper than the Tamron you're looking at) and you'll have the decent zoom range, good image quality at a pretty cheap price... and then start considering a flash, or a cheap prime

Sigma 30 f/1.4 and a UWA, which would most probably be a 10-22.

Do you think there is a lens currently made or made in the past that someone here is not yearning for? OK maybe not the Canon 22-55 or the Domiplan 50.

I was drooling this weekend after seeing a 100-400L for $650 on Craiglist. I was SECOND in line. I nearly cried when he emailed me back saying it was sold...

The lens I crave haven't been made yet,
Canon 400mm 5.6L IS and the Sigma 100-300mm f/4 Ex OS lens . I believe Canon will make that one before long , but it doesn't look like Sigma is going to make that one.

Sigma 10-20 4-5.6. I'd love the 3.5 or even the Canon 10-22, but there's no way I can afford those. At least this one is more feasible price-wise. I've just been wanting an UWA.

70-200 f/4 IS

Although after having seen one of the new f/2.8 II lenses, I'm sorely tempted to get it instead.

I am quite happy with my battery of lenses...

I love my 70-200mm f/4L IS... Before you give up on this lens in favor of the new 70-200mm f/2.8L IS ii lens, I suggest that you carry one of the larger lenses for a day of walk-around shooting. Although some photographers don't mind the weight, many do. I am included in that letter group.

Another thought is travel... I see many posts stating that the poster has a 70-200mm f/2.8 (series) lens but doesn't want to take it on a trip because of the weight.

I carry the 70-200mm f/4L IS lens everywhere in conjunction with a 17-55mm f/2.8 IS lens on a pair of bodies. The excellent IS capability of the f/4L IS lens allows me to shoot in other than bright conditions. I can easily shoot with my lens at 200mm using 1/60 second and expect 100% sharp imagery. At 1/30 second, my keeper rate is not 100% but, is still respectable.

I can carry the f/4L IS lens AND A SECOND BODY at the same weight as the f/2.8L (series) lens alone.

Both the f/4L IS and the f/2.8L IS ii lenses produce exceptional imagery. The f/2.8 will of course give you an additional stop. However, for the vast majority of my uses, the f/4L IS lens is totally satisfactory.

BTW: You can isolate subjects quite well with the f/4L IS lens...
