    Well, I do it

    Obviously I don't think its a dumb idea - that's my link above. And there is huge demand - I can't keep bodies in stock.
    The tough part is figuring depreciation. Its pretty easy on lenses. I know...

    I find the 70-300 IS to be a surprsingly good lens. Far better than the 75-300 that preceded it.

    Poll: 135l

    I voted for the 85 because my very favorite, the 135 f2 wasn't an option.

    I may be in the minority but I find a quality difference between my 5D and 30D - basically in noise (really grain, its not chroma noise). Its not dramatic, but its noticeable. I can tell from my...

    A lot of lenses, most really, aren't quite as sharp even in the center with the aperture wide open. Stopping down even a little can make a big difference. My own experience is my 50mm 1.8 isn't sharp...

    The 17-40 is a very nice lens on full frame, but you'll definitely need something longer and unless your a wide angle fan its probably too long for a walkaround on a full frame.
    This, of course,...

    The low light part is tough. For $1500 I think CWPhoto's recommendation is best for dedicated birding. For $3000 I'd probably stay with the 400XTi ($800), get a 100-400 L for more flexibility ($1300)...

    I'd add that while the 28-105 IS is a nice lens it needs to be stopped down some to be sharp, which the 24-105 does not. It also has an older IS system that isn't as effective as the 24-105. There's...

    I'd throw out one other thought: a Sigma 15mm fisheye is one of my most used lenses on a crop body. Its wide, extremely sharp, easy to defish in software, fast at f2.8 and cheap at under $300 used....

    If you're most interested in a fast, longer lens for the plays and such, the Canon 200m f 2.8L is a superb lens that can be had for under 500 on eBay pretty regularly. It won't help your closer shots...

    Indeed, Rhys, you were :-). Although Midsouthphotography is rather quiet since Lensrentals began going insane a couple of months ago:rolleyes: A little portrait work is all I've had time to do.
