I gotta say that the last picture is the most amazing image I have seen in a long time.  You took a truly marvelous picture.

The dramatic sky has the power of B & W and yet you have managed to use the color in the center of the picture top draw the eye in without distracting it.

I do not envy you the weather but you have a great eye for composition

Thank you very much for your nice comment

Here is another one for this series

I am very much looking forward to your review as this will probably be my next lens ... especially interesting would be the corner sharpness at 12mm and the f4.0 - f8.0  range compared to the previous one ...

I am very thankful for every review of someone who already has one ...

Regards Chris

Wow... I could not even imagine what you can do with the TS-E lenses...

Well actually these shots are not that difficult ... Just need to concentrate on symmetric framing and of course wait a little so no people are there. The TS-E will at some poit of course be in my kit, but for now I am waiting for the Sigma 12-24mm Gen II and the Canon 7-15mm L Fisheye Zoom ... TS-E 17mm will be maybe the next after that ... always need something to look forward to ... I am also looking for the 200-400mm TC 1.4, but I guess the price will be totally out of this world ...

Post your Interior Shots here: :-)

All kinds of Halls, Churches, Museum, Mosques, Temples and other large enclosed places are found in the urban environment ... Show us your best pictures here: :-)

Have Fun everyone and I look forward to see many great shots of you soon.

To show you some examples I will start with some of mine.

all depends how far away you are....  the 7d has the 1.6 crop factor so for distance will boost your 70-200 to a max of 320mm...  5dmk2 no crop factor, so that'd be the decision maker for me.

i do hope that visitors of this forum realise that crop factor does not mean one can multiply crop factor with focal lenght of lens. 55mm is 55mm regardless of crop factor. so when 200 mm is put on 1.6 crop factor camera image is no closer, just croped because it is being projected on smaller sensor, so more detail is being lost then on ff sensor. that means 200 mm on 1.6 crop sensor is still 200mm lens. it will never become 320mm because it does not zoom in more, it just crops image.

As long as you work under good light conditions and the higher light gathering capability of a FF sensor can be neglected (from what I have seen on the 7d up to maybe ISO 1250) the camera stays competitive to a 5d MKII as the 7d acts like a (theoretical) 18MP x 1.6^2 = 46MP FF camera for the croped part if would be scaled up to FF sensor. The question I would be more concerned here is with the theoretical limit of lenses if it really comes down to this. if higher ISO capabilities become important that is of course another story ... 
However in reality I guess few ppl look at pictures this way, so I guess the 1.6 magnification that the 7d delivers is good enough for most persons who just want to have a longer Telephoto range for eg occasional wildlife without spending a fortune on a 500, 600 or 800mm lens

Lenses: 50mm f1.4 or f1.2L , 85mm f1.2L and 70-200 f2.8 IS II

and if you can't afford all of that, try subbing out the 85 1.2L for the 85/1.8, sigma 85/1.4, or samyang 85/1.4, for a fraction of the price. Nothing wrong with no AF if it's a sit-down portrait :o
70-200 f/2.8 non-IS can also save you a bit of scratch, especially if you're outside, well lit, and for portraits you'll be at f/2.8 anyway.

For the 85mm I agree the L lens is of course a little overkill but if the funds are available you won't go wrong with it ...

For the 70-200mm I disagree for two reasons. First the IQ of the IS2 is significantly higher making primes in the longer range obsolete, till it comes to the very professional ones (200mm f2, 300mm f2.8 and 400mm f2.8)  and together with Ext 2x III it will be quite usable till 400mm and secondly the IS2 will make it far better regarding the results as 200mm f2.8 is already quite hard to hold in low light without IS ... a third reason is that this lens is quite new and very stable in value, so money is not really lost as long as it in good shape. That is also true for the 85mm f1.2 compared with the third party ones...

For portrait I guess the following would be a good equipment to start with nice results

Body: 5d MkII (more detail, better ISO) AF is not that important if you shot steady subjects so the 5d MKII one should work OK for you ...   

Lenses: 50mm f1.4 or f1.2L , 85mm f1.2L and 70-200 f2.8 IS II

So the 50mm is for indoor use and full body, 85mm tighter like shoulder or half body and the 70-200 makes a great flexible outdoor lens outperforming the 200 f2.8 L and being more flexible in regards of framing...

1982chris911 - Your work is outstanding. I've seen some of your other photos on other threads and I must say I admire the work. Is the 17-40 f4L your primary "wide angle" lens used to capture your HDR's?

Yes it is currently, but if you ask me for my opinion regarding that lens, it is good esp. for the price however the 16-35mm II is def better if money is no concern ... I guess I will also upgrade at one point, but for the moment I am more waiting for the Sigma 12-24 gen II and the 7-15mm Zoom Fisheye and would really get excited if Canon announces a 14-24mm lens (I regard the 14mm II as much to expensive for what you get compared to Nikon and therefore won't buy it ... ) ...
