Please!!!
Just pulled the trigger on another lens and a battery grip for my 40D.
Ordered a Canon EF 24-70 f/2.8 L to fill the last gap in my lens kit...I think:sexywink:
Looks like I covered it now
Tokina 11-16 f/2.8
Canon EF 24-70 f/2.8L
Canon EF 70-200 f/2.8L IS USM
Canon EF 100-400 f/4.5-5.6L IS USM
Canon EF 400 f/2.8L IS USM
Canon EF 2X II TC
Kenko Pro 300 1.4 TC

I thought I needed a little present after proposing to my longtime S.O. and popping for a ring that reduced her to tears last weekend.

OMG I'm getting married again!!!
Me thinks I need an intervention:lol:

There's still a gap you missed between 16mm and 24mm. Oh my what will you do?
I suggest a 20mm prime.

On the other front, I suppose congratulations are in order. All the best.

I hate to break the news, but you have several gaps in your lens lineup. :lol: I still have gaps in mine as well. Besides someone has to stimulate the economy. :lol::lol:

People still have bank books?

Congrats on the marriage!
I've been married just over 100 years now and I'm starting to get comfortable with it.
Well...I'm starting to accept it ;)

That wasn't a complete list, I have another body (10D) several more lenses, a full set of extension ring, 3 tripods (Manfrotto, Gitzo and a cheapy), WimberlyII head, RC322 head, Pixma 9000 printer cable release CF cards yada,yada,yada.

I'll never have all that I want but felt the above lineup had only a small gap (16-24) but that's workable. 16-70 is where I didn't have what I would call a really sharp lens so the 24-70 fills most of the gap.

I like to shoot available light so I like getting the fastest lenses I can get.

I'd like a macro, a T.S. and a 600 or 800 prime along with several other fast short primes, so never a lack of wanting.

Second time around for the both of us. Were both over 50 and pretty much comfortable financially. Photo gear is something I award myself as I find a need and justify it as contributing ( as in income) or a pat on the back for success in another area.

I've been with MB for over 6 years now, we built a house together several years ago and felt it made sense to make it official in the eyes of the Gov.


Thanks for the congrats.
