I've decided, maybe.

  1. Well i think i've decided what i'm going to do. Out of my lenses which are
    12-24mm wide.
    17-35 f2.8
    50mm f1.8
    18-200 vr
    105mm macro
    70-200mm f2.8 vr
    70-300 4-5.6 D
    300mm f4.
    F100 camera body

    I'm going to sell the:
    17-35 f2.8
    70-300 f4-5.6
    F100 camera body.

    Pickup a 28-70 f2.8 to complement the 12-24 and 70-200 2.8 vr
    Keep on the lookout for a 35mm f2 and an 85 f1.8. and a TC-14E
    I'd part with the 18-200 vr,but it's a nice all around lens for carrying around for a long time if i don't have a bag.I might change my mind with the 28-70. Who knows how this disease will affect me next week, next month, next year.

    I've thought of selling my 18-200 many times, but can't pull the trigger
    def. get the 35f2..great , sharp, small lens
    I've thought of getting the beast also...but now leaning towards 17-55
    85 1.8 is a great deal on sharp glass also..
    the 17-35 is a fabulous lens....I would find it hard to get rid of that one

    confused more now ??....

  3. The 17-35 is a great lens,but i'm ending up with so much overlap somethings gotta give. The 12-24, 28-70, 70-300 pretty much covers it. The primes are a separate thing. I'm getting to like the 50mm 1.4 i got in the bag of goodies a couple of weeks ago. I'm thinking the 35 f2 and the 85 1.8 would be fun if i can get them cheap enough.
    At this point the 18-200 vr stays. Just because it's handy and versatile.

    the 50 1.4 is great as well
    ive got that, 35f2, 18-200, 12-24 and 80-200
    been wanting a fast zoom...i.e 17-55 or 28-70 also
    was gonna sell 18-200 and then grab 17-55 and possibly 70-300 VR
