    Hi

    After doing some research I have made a list of lenses that I am to buy.
    They are

    Canon 100-400L (Sports, wildlife etc)
    Canon 10-22 Wide Angle ( Buildings etc)
    Canon 50mm 1.4 (portraits etc)
    Sigma 150mm EX DG Macro (close ups)

    I already have a Tamron 18-200 Di II which takes a very nice photo...and is my general lense.

    Once I get some feed back on my choices, I will go and buy two... At the moment my first two are the 100-400 and Sigma Macro!!

    Thanks
    Ackley

    Can't go wrong with that lineup. Would love to have any of those.

    The only thing I'd say you're missing there is a general purpose walk-around zoom lens. The Sigma 18-125mm is a good choice for that. Pretty cheap and reasonably good quality.

    Edit: Oops, sorry, just saw your comment about the tamron :(

    I always want more more more because i just love buying stuff!

    At the moment i have:

    Standard Canon 50mm f1.8
    Canon 70-200mm Zoom
    & Tamron 28-75 Zoom with Macro

    They seem to fill any need. The tamron is useful for general wandering when you dont know what to expect. Not too big but versatile.

    EDIT:
    Sorry that was nothing to do with your choices. Personally if i had your selection, i wouldnt want/need anything more.

    Instead of Canon 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5, I would consider the Canon 16-35mm f2.8L.

    What will you be primarily photographing?

    that's a nice lineup. it's expensive though, i must say. are you going to buy all of those at once? that's around 3100 bucks. rather hefty price (at least for me :D).
