p.1 #1 · Help me spend $500...


So, here's what I have now:

1D
24-70 2.8
Zeiss 50mm
Rokkor 135

I've got $400-$500 that I can spend on something... But what? If you were in my boat, what EF lens (or lenses) would you get?

T2i/40D body for vacation or add another $200 for 5Dc/1Ds - your current lenses are doing just fine

Canon 70-200 f4 L.... you can probably find one in your price range if you look around.

Or if you want wide, get one of those Rokinon/Samyang wide angle lenses to fool around with.

A mint 40D low actuation is around $370-450 and it has great IQ - some 17-40L and 40D samples

Dude only you can know what you are missing!

If you want a better High ISO...the 1D2 is excellent and doube the megapixels. You can find it for 600$. IF you consider selling the 1D, its doable.

If you think you could like more reach...the Pipe (80-200L f2.8) is a marvelous piece of glass.
A good shape used one can be found for 600$ also...if you have the pacience to look.

You're missing UWA

Rokinon 14mm in Canon mount

I'm sure there are other alternatives as well.

I'm probably getting an UWA myself once my B&H refund of the 135L goes through (decided to keep my 70-200 over it). For me at least, UWA is some of the most fun to shoot, especially with a close-focusing lens and lots of UWA focus pretty closely.

Whoa, Tran, those are some great 17-40 shots. Great colors with that lens, as your shots demonstrate.

Well, I decided what to get. I'm going to save a bit more for a 200 2.8L and maybe a 17-40. I'll have to live with what I've got for a bit longer, but that's ok... I'll suffer
