Lets get an idea who has what and what you use the lenses for.



Well I got a 20d, and the EF-S 17-85mm IS, for general use for now.

Canon 20D & 300D for backup also an old Olympus C-2020 for infrared with a hoya R72 infrared filter.

Canon 50mm f1.8, 85mm f1.8 low light, portrait, and have use both for indoor gymnastics, soccer, and volleyball.

Sigma 28mm f1.8 another good low light lens, 18-50mm f2.8,this is my widest anglefor now, so I use it for large group shots,landscapes, and architectural shots, 24-70mm f2.8, this is pretty much my walkaround lens,I use it for just about everything, 70-200mm f2.8, I use it with and without the teleconverters for wildlifeand outdoor sports,50mm f2.8 macro, I think I use this one for macro, 1.4x and 2.0x teleconverters.

I am in the market for an ultra wide, just can't make up my mind which one yet.

Bucky Badger,
why are you asking? Are you just wondering, or are you thinking about what you might want to get? Because if you want lens advice we're happy to give it (too much, usually!) but we'd need to know what you would like to photograph. With that info, and some insite into your standards we can be very helpful.

Here is my info:

Canon 20D (might sell it)
Canon 1D MkII N I've lusted after it for awhile, but I couldn't justify it until my trip to Florida.

All canon lenses:
600mm f/4 IS
100-400 f/4.5-f/5.6 IS
28-138 f/3.5-f/5.6 IS
50mm f/1.8
17-40 f/4

1.4x and 2x teleconverter
Extention Tube 12 II
Extention Tube 25 II

- I use the wide angle for fall foliage shots and the occasional water fall. I really can't justify having such a nice & expensive lens, but when I use it... I love it.
- The 50mm is just a "I need a short lens" lens. It is in my bag always because its so small and light I just don't notice. But like yesterday, when I'm out with my 600mm and suddenly I want to take some wide angle shots... its there.
- The 28-135 is my party/portrate lens. Its light and easy to handle. Not very fast, but it gets the job done. I'm not looking for art when I use this lens, just having fun. It captures people well (just not in groups.)
- The 100-400 is for bird flight shots when I need to hand hold. It isn't that heavy and it works well. It also has a surprisingly good close-focus distance so I can take butterflies with it (especially if I add a tube.)
- 600mm this is my big gun and is on my camera about 90% of the time. I use it to photograph birds and other animals.
