    the 24-85 seems kind of useless. That's not very wide.

    Otherwise.. seems decent

    seems aight. you'll probably want the 10-22 for the wide end and maybe a 70-200 for the other end.

    The problem you will have with that lens is that its simply not wide enough, so you will find yourself againt walls trying to capture elements you want..see if you can find a 17-85 for it, its quite a bit more expensive but worth every penny.

    i think the 24-85 takes a 67mm filter, kinda confused on the filters you're listing.

    are you buying used and its coming with more lenses? :confused:

    As long as it isnt from a scam website, that deal sounds pretty good.

    I backed out. I couldn't make it today, so he then sent me an e-mail saying that my 700 dollar offer was now "Null and Void" :rofl: Go for it.
