I've my eye on the 24-70L, but like I said, it's out of my budget, as is the 17-55mm. But I do admit, those zooms are nice!

Although with a lens like that, I'm pretty sure you don't need my help to have it move fast!

So you're going for an all-prime setup too?

I'm being pretty hypocritical right now since all I have is a 17-35 and 24-70.

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).

The Canon 10-22 is awesome. I really loved that lens. It's far better than anything Sigma or Tamron currently offers IMO. It's so resistant to flare that I actually had a bit of difficulty trying to intentionally reproduce it.

I see them regularly at POTN's FS forum. I actually bought mine there for $550 (and sold it for more ).

Normal zooms are complete crap. I agree completely with r3incarnat3d. 100%.
Come on, normal zooms aren't complete crap, only pixel peepers and gear heads say that. I agree that primes are great and definitely superior, but there's a lot to like about a high quality zoom lens.

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!
And like the 5DC, the 5DII will live on and continue to be a great camera, so I don't see why so many people are desperate for the mkIII. Don't get me wrong, I'd love to have it myself, but the mkII is fantastic.

And I still love the 135L. If it had rounded aperture blades, it would be perfect.

And since we're seeming to post our upgrade plans:

16-35 f/2.8L II and/or 70-200 f/2.8 L II. I'll sell my 70-200 f/4 IS to fund one of those two.

It's not so much that I dislike the 5D Mk II (I think it's a brilliant camera), but that the Mk III will most likely be what's new when I'm able to get a FF camera. It's just one of those things that I'd actually like to buy brand new, and given my finances it's just likely the Mk III will be the new camera out when I finally save up $2k for a 5D camera.

I gave in and bought my first DSLR yesterday, after wanting one for a while now.

Canon EOS Rebel T2i
Kit lens - EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS


I got the T2i for the extra video features over the T1i, now I just need to learn how to make the video look like this:

post #10409 of 29539
Im a bit stumped here lads. I'm starting to realize that getting Sony stuff used is very difficult and theres not a huge amount of new stuff available for me to buy, whereas for Nikon and Canon theres a huge amount, so I'm thinking about trading in all my gear, and going to Nikon Or Canon (Im looking at a 1D Mk.II, 40D, or a D3100. All €500) but I dont know if its worth jumping, like I'd probably only be able to afford one lens for any of the above cameras and i'd also lose my flashgun (that being said used Flash guns for Canon/Nikon are easy for me to get, and cheap too)

So whats everyones opinions on the situation ? Advice ?

Edit : Should have mentioned, both Canon bodies are used, the Nikon would be new

With a large aperture. Most likely you'll have to invest in a prime lens to get that large of an aperture for the DoF it offers. The 50mm f/1.8 is a good place to start.
