I pulled the trigger on my first L Glass Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L USM. Many more to go.
oh no look what you started.
It's like the gateway drug
I've had my 17-40 for a year now. I love it, but I kind want to sell it and get a 16-35 II
Gateway drug evidence.
I want a 24-70 and a 300 2.8 too...
as well as some L primes...
That's my set up. Minus the 300. I'm working on it though.
so true. my first L was a 17-40
now I have 16-35 II, 24-105, 70-200 f4 and thinking of getting a 135 f/2
Im a Nikon guy...what's special about L glass?
If Im to buy them all I need to start somewhere......
oooo, I want that
Come to the dark side...
i want a 24-70, but scared it wont be wide enough. I wish they made a 17-70 f2.8
24 is pretty wide. I dont mind it.
The easier solution would be to buy a full frame with the 24-70
I want a 1DsMII like brasheye I love everything about the 1D series. too bad I need a lot more $$$$
I'd love to upgrade my 1D MK II to a 1Ds MK III... only thing is that's a hell of a lot of money I don't have. Grad school doesn't pay enough.
I've been using the 17-40 4L for about three years now. There are times I'd like the 16-35 2.8 but that's only when sometimes at night I have trouble focusing through the f4 lens. I've started using a few things to make that easier though because the 17-40 makes good sense, I don't need a 2.8 lens when almost all my shooting is stopped down on a tripod.
high end, son
That was my first L lens too. I just sold it and bought the 16-35 f/2.8 L lens but I'm kind of wishing I had purchased the II series instead of the first series. Oh well. I'll have to see how sharp it is WHEN I GET MY FUCKING CAMERA!!
I also splurged on the 70-200 f/2.8L IS lens. My most expensive purchase.
200 F2 (I guess instead of the 1.8 since it's no longer serviceable, although it's amazing)
And I guess for basketball I need / want a 24-70, but this zoom range doesn't excite me all that much.
this thread is too high end for me
i worried about that too. it's just fine. i was shooting groups of people on a small-ish boat (i was on the same boat)
