    I have a Canon EOS 20D DSLR, a Canon 50D and an old Canon EOS 10s film camera. My lenses consist of a Canon EF 18-135mm IS, Canon EF 28-135mm IS USM and a vintage Canon EF 50mm 1.8 MK 1 lens. All equipment is in excellent condition, just wondering if aside from an L lens do I need anything else to compliment my collection? I take lots of family photos and landscapes. Looking forward to your responses.

    This sir, is a subjective question. If your good, your good. From the list it seems you have everything covered but the photos are yours to make. You can look into a 28mm or 35mm prime but the choice is yours. =]

    Edit* Nice lenses by the way =]

    Thank you for your reply. Guess you're correct, don't do much that would require long distance glass, so maybe the 28 or 35mm option would give me a bit more to play with.

    Not a Canonite, but I wonder why an 18-135 AND a 28-135. Aperture difference?

    The 18-135 is an EF-S (Aps lens) the 28-135 is a Full frame lens

    (edit...made mistake..)

    You always need another lens. And when you get another lens you'll still need another lens.

    I have no experience with Canon lenses, but my own collection includes several long prime lenses. 180 and 300mm as examples.

    Oh no... telling me I am right is a mistake. Like @Designer said above, there are also long distance lenses. I would think each photographer had different wants, unless your me, I want them all. Twice. :allteeth:

    Thank you all. Every lens I have came with a camera. Bought them all fairly cheap on line. Over the years I've gotten rid of the cameras, but kept the lenses. The 18-135mm came with my Canon EOS 50D. The 28-135mm came with a 40D package. Guess everyone has a mania when buying to feed a hobby, but this time I was trying to garner opinions on what other hobbyists thought to be a good choice. I really could get by with just the EF 28 - 135mm for the kind of stuff I do, but every so often I find myself hunting the Internet for something new. Guess I'm not alone!

    OK... So what I will input is this.

    If your serious, I would go to ebay and look over the 35-350mm L.
    The lens is friggin heavy but worth it.
