Thx! And welcome to FM!
Yes, I apologize for having forget saying hello in my first post on this forum!. I'm in vacations with lots of time for toys and feel the urgency to share my findings, once I managed to run dcraw on the 6D RAWs.
I'm a amateur... and keep reading this forums for some time, which are very interesting. Currently I own a 400D (how old!), a EF-S 10-22 and the 70-200 F4L IS. I plan to upgrade soon to FF, mainly for the 17mm TS-E (many times I shot in wide angle a building, I calculate how much it could improve by shifting certain amount the frame up!). I also would love having another lenses, specially a fast prime (perhaps the Sigma 85/1.4?) but I decided a lot of time ago not to buy any more FF lenses without having a FF camera: I had a bad experience with a 10-20 sigma, with a soft side, and a crop camera only shows 38% of the FF image circle (plus the focal length crop factor changing the intended focal lengths). In addition, I decided not to invest in crop lenses once I realized that I will end in FF. Now, I desperately need a FF camera!
Another lens I'm interested is the 24-70 F4L IS, once the reviews come up. Despite the cold reception (well, specially in sites like canonrumors, not so much here in FM) such a lens is a one a lot of time ago I wished (now that stupid Canon has readed my mind!) A balance in weight and image quality (if properly built). Equivalent in all respects to 17-55 F2.8 IS in crop cameras (depth of field, effective light gatering, weight) and with a better range for me. I tried a 17-55 a lot of time ago and didn't like it mainly because too much flare with every night light (and at least that copy not too sharp at 17mm). The 24-105 is a too much ambitious design, and the 24-70 2.8 is heavier and anyway not so fast as a 1.4 or 2.0 prime. I think that 24-70 F4 IS could be a good landscape and general purpose high quality lens... am I right?. In Nikon there is a nice 16-35 VR for landscapes as well as interiors, and between 24-28mm seems to match primes stopped down (Canon 17-40 has no IS, and using polarizers or when entering at church/museums its absence is a minus). Oh yes, I hate tripods :-).
