Are you a lens collector

I am striving to become one.
How about you, Jonathan ?


I has been trying not to become a lens collectors, since Canon has built some amazing L lens.
I'm a sports Photographer and owned variety of Canon lens from 400mm F2.8L IS to TS-E 24mm F3.5L II.
These are lens that I'm using daily to captures images.

Not too exciting. If I was more familiar with alternate lenses, I'd probably want more of them.


Well, that's what I call quality gap-less collection. Gotta have a system

I am surprised you haven't gone for 500 MkII as opposed to MkI.
Either way, the lineup seems very sensible to me.

Cheez, I love it PetKal. I only have 10 lenses and think I'm pretty complete. So maybe add all the L primes I don't have but have lusted after: 24 (both), 35, (never liked 50 mm), 85, 135, 180, 500, 800. Damn I'm still 2 short. Zeiss 35 (oh, wait that makes 3 35s) and 100 (two of those), (can't stand the Z21 'caus everyone on this forum says you must have one). So, now will you send me the money to do all this?

Edit: Oh, make those IIs if they're available.

You sure you want that 800L as opposed to 600 II ? If so, I'll trade you 800L for 600II.

Rob, I respect a photographer who knows exactly what lenses he needs.

Abam, it is interesting that you've stopped at 200mm, and also nothing wider than 17mm.
