Hey,



The question is do these lenses come with the respective soft cases and lens hoods listed? Various websites list different things for the cases and hoods, some with, some without.



EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM:

EW-83E Lens Hood

LP1319 Soft Case



EF 24-70mm f/2.8L USM:

EW-83F Lens Hood

LP1219 Soft Case



EF 70-200 f/2.8L IS USM:

ET-86 Lens Hood

LZ1324 Soft Case



Also what filters to get for these lenses? I was looking at Canon Regular and Circular Polarising 77mm, but would appreciate any others or different brands recommended to get.



Also I think I have a pretty good range here, but would it be worth getting an EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM? Any other lenses to cover missing range?


Thanks Rob



P.S. Looking for the highest quality avaliable so ignore the money.

Rob:

You'll probably havea better chance of getting useful answersconcerning Canon Lenses in the Canon Lenses Forum.

So, I'll move this thread there for you now.

Hi roblo,
Sorry did not spot your post in the other forun.

I do not know what vendor you are looking at, but with the canon lenses I have purchased I did get a hood, and end caps, but no soft-case.

I did get hoods, end caps and cases with all the Sigma EX lenses.
As well as tripod collars for the lenses that need them, I think that is optional for the canon 70-200

I own the 24-70L and the 70-200L IS. They both come with a lens hood (big ones I must add). The 70-200L comes with a very nice case. It is mid-way between a hard shell and a soft-cloth one. In that you can still compress the case, but with some effort. It has a strap too so you can hang it over your shoulder, although the strap is a bit thin. It would probably hurt your shoulder after a while. The case is big enough to fith the lens with the tripod colloar, and the lens hood (reversed) on the lens.

I honestly don't quite remember if the 24-70 came with anything to pack it in. I think it came with one of those soft, felt inside, sacks with a string to close it. I never use it though. I keep it in my padded camera bag.

Check out www.bhphoto.com. They usually list what a lens comes with.

As for filters. The bests generally are the Hoya Super HMC PRO1 series, or the other brand is B+W. I own the former, but if you read up on this these two brands come out on top.

For the 10-20mm wide angle (does it even take a front filter?) You probably want a thin filter to reduce vignetting. In that case it might not come with a front-thread, which means your lens cap won't fit anymore.
At least both the 24-70 and 70-200 take 77mm filters, thus you only need one polarizer for the two.

Finally, for some suggestions for longer focal length lenses, see http://www.stevesforums.com/forums/v...26&forum_id=65

Hope this helps,
Barthold

Only the Canon EF 70-200 F4L does not ship with a tripod collar. The F2.8 versions do.

Try

http://www.parkcameras.com

I get a lot of stuff from them and they are in the UK. I'll agree with barthold about the 70-200 lens and it's accessories. Don't have the others so can't comment!
