Will do, but it may be a while as I would have to pay approximately $800 or so extra out of pocket, plus I haven't decided if it's the next lens I want (16-35 II, 70-200 II, Zeiss 21, etc., so many choices).

Super long story short, I got the 17-85 for a nice deal with my old 18-55 kit lens, after I got my 28-135. Essentially it was 'value' trade -- I can sell the 17-85 for over double what I got (essentially) the 18-55 for. The 28-135, I picked up when I had only the kit lens for the T1i.

That's fine, gives me a chance to save up and actually have money for you should you decide to sell.

I know there has been some arguments over which 3 are the trinity but I pretty sure this combo is the most popular "Trinity"

I believe if you have the 50L you won't need the 35 or the 85 and just go with a 50 + 135.



I have the Mark II 85 1.2 L and it is still comparatively slow to all my other L's. The 135L is lightening fast, the 35L is no slouch, but the 85, you can actually *wait and listen* to the magnetic focus ring drive the glass lol. The glass is so heavy that it feels more like a telescope that is recalculating its co-ordinates. The glass element actually physically extends out like a zoom. It doesn't allow manual focus unless its powered up.

I once made the following analogy of the 3 lenses.

35L: The wife that you can rely on. beautiful and consistent.

85L: The gorgeous but demanding mistress that is expensive and makes no sense in your life but you can't let go of cause when its good its REALLY good.

135L: The fun and crazy girl on the side, you don't see her much but you have fun with her when you do.

35L: Need
85L: Want
135L: Have
Well then, I now have 2/3 of the Trinity! I just ordered the 35L. Thanks everyone for your comments and help.
