Thanks everyone for your input.

I have been looking at the 17-40 f/4 L too now that everyone has chimed in. I thought I had settled on the 17-55 f/2.8 but the 17-40 f/4 seems like a good option too. Anyone have any experience with that lens at all? I feel like I wouldn't really miss the 40-70 mm range this would cause with the 70-300.  Opinions about losing a stop and IS between the 17-55 f2.8 and the 17-40 f4?

Hello everyone,

Right now I have an XSi and three different lenses : 70-300 f/4-5.6 IS, 18-55 f/3.5-5.6 IS (kit lens) and 100 f/2.8 Macro.
I was wondering if anyone could help out with whether I should wait for a new body such as a 7D Mk II/ 5D Mk III or to just get a 7D now or if I should get new lens now.  The lenses I've been looking at are a used 70-200 f2.8 L Mk I with an 2x extender or a 24-70 2.8 L.  Other recommendations are welcome!

I would like something that I can grow in to and not be limited by in the future.

I mainly shoot wildlife and landscape.
Price isn't really so much of an issue.
I've been shooting for about 4 years and I'm not that good but I like doing it a lot so that's all that really matters.
