    What other stuff can or should I look for my new Canon T2i? I like taking pictures and videos while at the drag strip. But my wife likes taking pictures of butterflies and the out doors. I also don't mind but just don't always have time to be out in the woods .

    Lessee... butterflies = macro, outdoors = wide angle/normal/telephoto, both probably better with tripod. Drag strip = fast telephoto if you're shooting at night and from the stands. But it would help to know what you've got besides the camera body.

    70-200 f2.8 and 100mm f2.8 macro. That should cover it. Oh and you will need a flash so a 430 or 580ex will do.

    That glass is pretty expensive. 100mm f/2.8 is almost 1 grand, and 70-200 old model is $1300. So almost the price of 5dmk2

    OP gave no budget and both pieces are outstanding glass. The 100mm macro is actually around $600. Plus the 5dmk2 is worthless without glass.
