I've just purchased a 18-200 VR which should arrive in a few days. Questions is, should I sell my 24-70 F/2.8 and 70-200 F/2.8 lenses ? Its not a money thing, I can afford the lens. Its more about, will I use the other lenses ? Mostly I shoot F/4 or higher, so I won't really miss the shallow DOF cos I don't really use it. Not worried about the macro capabilities of the new lens - I have a Sigma 150mm F/2.8 which is great + I could always stick my 500D on the new lens if needed. Long reach - I have a Sigma 50-500mm, which accepts teleconvertors so plenty of reach if needed (albeit slow until I can afford a 200-400mm VR !) The bag is bulging - selling the other lenses would free up some space, and give my wife some play money ! Decisions, decisions !
