I'm mostly doing events, models and soon I will be shooting more weddings.  I like wildlife and was thinking of the 100-400, but some people are saying the 70-200 2.8 II with 2X is just as good or at least close enough.  I want to sell my EF-S glass and maybe get the 16-35 and the 2x TC.  Would you look at getting anything else?

If you are doing events especially weddings, its good to have two bodies.  70-200 with 2x should be ok until you need longer than 400 then you can look at one of the super telephotos.

17-55 f2.8 has superb image quality and you can get the 16-35 if you want to go wider.

Also, do you have speedlite(s)?

Cheers

I have 2 600's and the st-e3 controller.  I guess I can use the 10-22 on my second body and not need the 16-35

To me it seems you have a lot of indoor/event lenses covered. What about 400mm 5.6L? Works great in sunlight.

I was looking at a 400 or a 100-400, but is it not damn near as good to use a TC on the 70-200 2.8 MkII?  Less lenses to carry.  I already have too many to lug around now :)

I was thinking of selling my EF-S lenses and my T41 to get a 6D and a 16-35, or maybe getting a new 7D when it drops.  The T4i is a pretty capable second body though.  Not a pro body, but far from a bad camera to use for a second body.  I may just need to stay with what I have and stop going nuts for gear.  LOL 

I even thought of grabbing a 50 because I only have 50mm covered in zooms.  My only primes are the 85 1.8, 100 M L macro and the 35L.  I can get by with the 24-70 when I need to for portraits, but I find my 100L and my 35L are sharper.  Not that the 24-70 II is not amazing, just that I like primes for portraits.  I almost considered the 85 1.2, but can't justify the jump from the 85 1.8. 

Damn you Canon...LOL
