I'm about to pull the trigger on getting a 5D3 and was thinking about a lens or 2 to go with it. I currently have a 60d and an 1100d with ef-s18-55, 50-250, Tamron 17-50 f2.8, Canon 70-200 f2.8 and Sigma 150-500 lenses. I currently shoot just about anything but portraits aren't a preference.
I'm going to sell the 1100 and the 2 ef-s lenses but keep the rest because it's handy to have a second body at some events and the 60d swivel screen does come in handy. Even though the 17-50 won't fit the 5D3, its still a very good lens.
The lenses I was thinking of are the 24-105 f4 and the Tamron 90 f2.8 Macro. A friend suggested the Tamron as a very good budget macro and the reviews I've read are positive but could I get away with just using the 24-105 as a macro?
