    JMWallace: so you ended up with the 28-135, 17-40, and 50 f1.8 huh? that's the exact same setup i started out with (not counting the 17-85 i returned). half a year later i ended up replacing the 28-135 with the 70-200 f4 - i wish i had started with the 70-200 from the beginning. that L is on a whole other level. just thought it might be worth considering if the 28-135 is still within return period. or maybe you need the 28-135 zoom range for the kids - a suggestion couldn't hurt, right?

    Interesting...Thanks for making me feel like I am doing something right!!!! I did look at the 70-200 f/4...I really want the f/2.8 IS. First of all I am a victim of the "I wants" that I try my best to temper with the "thats more than I needs". Example....getting the 30D instead of the 20D....over the 350D but really don't need the 5D. This whole lens thing is putting me into an A.D.D. spin!!! I also have to deal with a spouse that, like I said earlier, isn't real keen on my "new" hobby. I would have gotten the f/4, but that bright big thing would have stuck out like a sore thumb and ....OOPPS there goes another month of wedded "bliss" down the drain. I can at least hide the 28-135 in that is similiar in size to the 17-40.

    So...for the time being, I will continue to save for the difference ($1,500+) in my "hidden" account. LEARN, LEARN, LEARN...earn some that extra $$ helping out my photographer friend...show her how good I can be...then get the lens. Maybe by the time I am ready to upgrade, I will have enough knowledge know if I "need" to spend the extra $1,200 for the 2.8 IS.

    Anyway...yes, the 28-135 is largly because of the kids. Some of my favorite pictures that is was (rarely) able to capture with my G5 was when I just let life happen. Again...that is why I knew it was time to make the jump to D-SLR. My statement again, "A great picture is a moment in time...not 3 seconds later."

    P.S. FINALLY got 'em loaded to smugmug...YIPPEE!!

    One thing I have learned on here is that, photographers have GOT to be the biggest bunch of "altered truth tellers" to their spouses!!!
