Thanks, mealers. I'll be gone for the next 2 weeks so I'll have to look in on your new thread when I return home...

I have finally made my decision on my last lens (so says the wife). I ordered the 24-70 F2.8 L from BH Photo this morning. They will not ship until Monday because they are on Holiday. I will have it for next weekend. Thanks to all have made input.

Here is what you can look forward to with the 24-70L and i owned both as well the 16-35L and the 17-40L and the 16-35L was the keeper, all the rant and rave about the 17-40 is about the price, but it is a very nice lens do not get me wrong, but on the 20D that F2.8 on the 16-35 is awesome, you really can not go wrong with either one 16-35 or 17-40, you have to ask yourself is the extra stop worth the extra $500.00 for me it is...

Thanks for the photo. The price is high but I decided that it is a long term investment. I also have the 70-200 F4/L. These two lenses provide me an excellent range and the opportunity to capture some great photos.
