    if possible, borrow/rent a zoom lens with 2.8 aperture and see if it suits your needs. if it doesnt, you'll have to resort to primes.

    depending on your shooting style, the 50/1.4 might be a better portrait lens than the 85.

    i'd say stick with your current setup of 17-55, 85 and 70-200 and work from there. as i keep getting into...

    the 30D + 17-85 IS kit is many steps up from the 18-55 kit lens, and also qualifies you for the double rebate. i think it's fine, and should suffice for most settings. you might lack a little bit in...

    what about the 24-70 L?

    perhaps this a cheap and creative way to simulate the 16~35 focal range (at the cost of 2/3 stop, which doesnt seem like such a bad compromise) :D
