Hi all,

Sorry for the terrible pun but I'd like your reaction. In no particular order, I like to shoot wildlife, Hudson Valley landscapes, baseball at all levels and portraits/candids of pretty women. I'm a total hobbyist.

I currently own (1) 18-55 IS; (2) 28-135 IS USM; (3)55-250 IS and (4)50mm 1.4 for my 450D. Throw in a 430EX flash and I'm done.

After recently renting a 70-200 f4L IS, I see such a vast and immediate difference that I'm buying one on Saturday (used but still expensive). After that, I plan to sell the 28-135 and the 55-250 to partially fund a 24-105L as a main/walkaround lens. The new lineup (hopefully enough for life) would then be the 24-105L IS, 70-200f4L IS and the 50MM f1.4 with the 18-55IS in the bag for whatever. I also carry my S5 but that's not really rlevant here.

SOOOO query: Like this setup? Hate it? Any suggestions for different alternatives/combinations?

Thanks in advance.
