    I'm thinking about purchasing the Canon 5D mk I or maybe even the II.

    What is a good all around lens to start out with?

    I was thinking about the [ame="http://www.amazon.com/Canon-24-105mm-USM-Lens-Cameras/dp/B000AZ57M6/ref=cm_cmu_pg__header"]Canon EF 24-105mm f/4 L IS USM Lens[/ame]...just a bit expensive...any other suggestions?

    thanks!:mrgreen:

    I just bought the Canon EF 24-105mm f/4 L IS USM Lens as an all round lens and i love it, i also have the 50mm 1.8 but I want to get the 70-200mm f2.8 for portraits. Good luck with it!

    Because it's an L lens. The "luxury" line is the top of the line lenses for Canon. And it is Image Stabilized.

    I prefer the 24-70 f/2.8L.

    You lose IS, but you gain an f stop, which works better when photographing anything moving. It's also a bit shorter, but you get a shallowe DOF. It's the lens that rarely leaves my 5D MKII.

    it depends on what you want to take and when you want to take it. or in other words, there's never just one perfect all around lens to get.

    Canon announced a new lens to be available early this fall.
    It is the "one lens for all" - 15mm- 500mm USM IS MKX
