Hmmm, Sigma 10-20mm f/4.5-5.6 EX DC HSM? Just throwing stuff out to see if you'd be interested.

That's next on my list. Or the EF-S 10-22, neither of which is coming in any recent future, haha.

That's actually my next planned lens after the 85mm f/1.8

My planned upgrade path:

85mm f/1.8, 10-22mm (Sigma or Canon, undecided), 135mm f/2L, 5D Mk (whatever is current when I buy it).

All primes. I've tried to use zoom lenses twice now, but I found that I cannot account for zoom in my photographic intuition (that is, I naturally prefer to move myself than zoom with the lens), and I constantly find myself craving a large, constant aperture (the 24-70mm f/2.8L is still out of my budget...)

It probably seems "out there" to most people, but an all-prime setup is what I naturally prefer

Dude basically all the FF Canon shooters here have a 135L, not even kidding. Well, Marin, Gone, and me...

Normal zooms are complete crap. I agree completely with r3incarnat3d. 100%.

That lens looks absolutely lovely, but seeing as how I need the wide angle and med telephoto ranges covered first, the 135L has to wait a bit.

Still, I've seen the pictures (including one wide-open shot from GoneTomorrow) and it makes me salivate.

One day!

As for the 5D, I'd love full frame but that'll have to wait too. By the time I get the money for it, it's very likely the Mk III or even Mk IV will be out!

it really depends on which zooms you have used, the 24-70L is pretty nice, so is the 16-35 or even teh 17-55/2.8.
