I'd love to get some advice on my next upgrade. My kit presently contains:
Canon 28-135 f/3.5-5.6 IS USM
Canon 50 f/1.8
I almost exclusively use the Tamron 10-24. Wide isn't my thing... WIIIIIIDE is my thing. Also worth noting, I shoot about 30-40% of my photos at night. I am looking for a body that will have less noise when I shoot at night since that's what I enjoy doing most.
I am considering upgrading to the 5DMII and getting the 17-40 f/4L. My other two lenses will still work with the 5DMII, but I am guessing (and would love feedback) that I won't be overjoyed with the Canon 28-135 on a FF body, so essentially I will be down to a 17-40. I don't see that as a huge problem because I presently shoot with my ultrawide about 80% of the time.
I am also considering getting the 60D or the 7D and selling the Tamron in favor of the Canon 10-22.
Presently, my budget does not support Option 1 so there will be a wait. I can afford option 2 right away.
Any ideas for me? Thoughts? Things I haven't considered.
I'd wait till I had some more budget
If you shoot at night a lot, the 17-40 might not be as fast for you. So either the 16-35f2.8 is what you need or the 14mm prime. Both are pricey!
If I were you, I'd get a 5D (not the mark2) and a 16-35mm lens; when you have more cash by next year, go to the 5D3 directly, bypassing the 5D2.
Another option is to get the 5d2 kit with the 24-105mm, this is equal to 15mm on your crop body, so pretty wide itself, if not ultra wide like the 16-35mm which is equivalent to 10-22mm on crop.
It it helps... plan the body around the glass, not other way around.
