    I had purchased the 24-70 and used it for walk around. Then I got the 16-35 and that became my walk around.


    All great lenses, congrats...if you need help breaking them in, I will work with the 200mm for you, you know, I want to help. ;):mrgreen:

    oh yeah.. its freaky deeky.. though it does lower the f-stop to 5.8 its still cool to zoom out to 400x. Be prepared for a back brace though.. its heavy.

    Nice! That's a beauty of a kit. Now all you need is a full frame body to put them on.

    I am trying to decide between the 24-70 and the 16-35! So its cool to find somoene that has both.

    If you were to choose just one of them for a wedding, which one would you choose?

    Does the 24-70 feel heavy after a while? its twice the weight of the 16-35.

    max -- Thanks! I do need to update it though..

    msf -- After shooting a little with both I think I am going to like the 24-70 better than the 16-35. Don't get me wrong, the 16-35 is great, but I see using it more for landscape shots or when I'm in a tight situation where I need a wide lens. Yes, it is heavier, but after shooting with the 70-200 it is pretty light. :)

    Just wondering about the 24-70, does it have a tripod/monopod mount on the lens? If so, does it rotate so you can take pics vertically? Im guessing it doesnt rotate, its just something I got wondering about.

    I love your HDR work on your website. that is a beautiful collection of lenses too! I wish i had that kind of money to drop on lenses but I want a new deck instead.
