    yeah, those lenses certainly do it all, including induce hernias and slipped disks.

    Yeah, I meant that literally. :ugh: Seriously, who would want to walk around with a 28-300L as their only lens?

    those that don't have room for a full lens aresonal
    those that can't allow dort or moisture into the camera
    the lazy
    those that don't have time to switch out lenses
    etc

    and its shorter (condensed) and only .2lb heavier than the 70-200IS

    overkill for many, sure, but it is a decent lens with a lot of practical application, but in specialized areas

    That's why we buy a 2nd body!

    I couldn't imagine walking around with a 28-300L as my "walkaround" lense. Personally, I don't mind carrying an extra body around just because the convenience of not having to switch out lenses > the extra weight.
     
  8. what is this lense you speak of? :hs: :confused:
     

  9. :eek3: Does such a lens exist :eek3:

    that sounds pretty sweet

    2100, 1800 used

    70-200 is 1500, 24-105 is what 1200, so you get a longer zoom range in 1 lens, though not as good of image quality or quite as fast.
     

  13. only $1000 more than the 70-200 :uh: I should have waited :mamoru:

    for 2100 new..

    i would get a 24-70L 2.8 + 70-200L f/4 + 50 1.8 + 85mm 1.8

    that will be almost a full set up right there
