24-105 f4L covers most situations.

I usually travel with more than 1 body and quite a few other L series lenses 

If finances stretch go for the 5DIII

Went from 40D to 5DII  and have just upgraded to 5DIII.

If you need APS-C get a 7D,   For FF a 6D will disappoint, so go for a 5DIII (grey) if your budget stretches.

Any EOS Digital camera lens combo that you have microadjusted to your enebriated state or a few 12 exposure disposable kodak/fuji cameras

You forgot to stencil "AF-S Nikkor 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR II" on your black lens.   :-X

If anybody asks  say its a prototype and I've signed an NDA

Lenses / Re: 70-200 is ii vs non is

I have non IS and it is sharper than IS mark1. If you want it get it soon as being discontinued.

When I got mine the stellar mark2 IS was not yet announced.

It's all down to personal preference.

If you have the money go for the 5D3. You wont regret it.

Have handled both and prefer the more rugged 5D3.
Autofocus ia a massive improvement on 5D2. 6D seems to have an upgraded 5D2 set up.

The writing has been on the wall for some time.  The closure of Jacobs showed how the market has changed.
Having higher shop prices than internet sales put many people off. In essence the change from film processing to digital images cut into their core business and the reluctance of the big names to allow discounting of their products made the high street stores uncompetitive due to high overheads.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: UPGRADING 7D to FF Please help!!!

I already have a 5d2 and tried out both 6d and 5d3.
6d felt small 6xx size but performed well considering specs. 5d3 outshone it . Unless you need wifi or gps go for 5d3.  I am awaiting arrival of mine c/w grip and 600rt.

I use plastic cling wrap. Apart from protecting the lens it seems to have good static properties that draw the dust out of my lens. Plus from experience growing up it kept fungus out of my lunch so I think same applies for a lens, my sardine sandwiches never went green even if I didn't fancy them for a few days.

For use with a 5dIII without initial mod substitute black stretchfilm
