Thanks Dylan777. I really appreciate a comment from expert like you. Actually, not only from you, but from all of the CR forum members.

I have learned a lot here.

I'm no expert Climber. Just an ave Joe  ;)

If I really HAD to get rid of almost everything then I would keep my 1DX and 800 F5.6 L, if I was allowed I would also keep my 24-105 (which I use occasionally) - the 1DX is virtually glued to the 800!

Dam...bird shooter  ;D

Purely from reviews I've come across, Tamron sounds a better option out of the you listed. 

Also, if a lens is not getting used then sell it and buy something that you will use a lot.

+1...pretty straight forward to me ;)

I'd guess that the Rebels outsell all the other Canon models by 50-1, so its surprising that you don't see more.

With the small aperture kit lens, the green dial works fine.  Many casual users want a big depth of field.  They get lots of good images too.

Obviously, they are not pro photographers obsessing over depth of field and shutter speeds, they just shoot, and have a good time, just like tourists have since the point and shoot was invented.  There were lots of excellent images taken with 35mm film in a disposable camera.  No AF or Aperture settings at all.

When I first started playing golf, the 1st thing I did wrong was taking golf lessons from a high 90ish handicap golfer(my co-worker). Bad habits are easy to pickup and adapt. Fixing them are not easy. Buying pro Taylormade driver, fairway woods, irons and ScottyCameron putter didn't help me finding the fairways.

After spending 30hrs with the local golf instructor on/off golf courses, my handicap improved.
Understanding the fundamental our hobbies will help us enjoy them even more...

With today Tech, latest golf clubs help golfers gain more in distance and more control approaching the greens.

Am I the only one who doesn't care what mode random people use?

No you are not the only one.  I try to spend the majority of my time not worrying about what other people do. 

Besides, for a tourist picture, there is nothing wrong with setting the camera on Automatic.  Nothing.

To the vast majority of the people who own DSLRs, it is a tool to take a picture.  Nothing more or less.  Besides the automatic setting on modern DSLRs does a pretty good job.

About proper shutter speed? About DOF? about focus on the subject that you intended to focus?

Love seeing the variety of images, and the quality too! Hopefully some of these coming up will be some almost unique combinations for you; and perhaps, someone might quite like the idea of using old m42 manual lenses - once you start though, it's hard to stop getting more of them!

5dmk3 with Kohki Komura f/3.5 (at f/3.5) 135mm m42 lens:

60d with Kaligar f/2.8 (at f/2.8) 135mm m42 lens:

60d with Porst Weit-Winkel f/2.8 (at f/2.8) 35mm m42 lens:

5dmk3 with Asahi S-M-C f/1.4 (at f/1.4) 50mm m42 lens:

I have more images from more conventional lenses too, but these are more unusual!

I really like the last one

I thought it'd be fun to share best missed shots :

  Here's one of mine from my recent trip to Tadoba tiger reserve in India, i didn't anticipate the jump, it was my first time spotting a tiger:
LOL - nice idea for a thread.  Too bad I have deleted the 10,000+ missed shots of mine ;D

LOL... ;D  +1

Sad topic :-\

I rather see "Your next lenses to purchase?"  ;D

:'( Goodbye my dear 5d mk III . ..Don't let the door hit you in the A$$.  :o

I hear ya, man.
I was married to her older half-sister, 5d2, and divorced her.
5d2 snored a lot and filled my nights and even my blue-sky-days with her infernal noise. 
I even tried to seek shelter in the darker parts of town but the noise followed wherever I went.

I think those 5D girls sure looked voluptuous but mine was also hard for me to live with.  I think they came from an unrefined family;  I heard their mother was a Rebel and 5d2's father was a point-n-shoot who didn't stick around but a year or so.  I don't know who planted the seed for 5d3.

While feeling a bit lonely for a pleasant and reliable companion i saw a mail-order ad for a new bride in the form of a petite d5100.  When she arrived I discovered she didn't speak my language very well but we soon learned how to communicate and she rarely needed to be corrected.  She is very well behaved and, while not terribly sophisticated, always tries hard and put out her best efforts.  If she has a flaw it's maybe that one leg is a bit shorter than the other because whenever I line up a perfect horizon in her viewfinder the picture comes out a bit tilted...  We learn to compensate.

I soon discover she has lots of interesting relatives and within a year I find I've sponsored 5 more of her family and much of their estate now reside with me and we all play together and have lots of fun.  They were even very accepting of my fostering Pentax, Fuji and Olympus underdogs.  A few elderly Canon family members remain as well as they're just not worth moving to another home and they still occasionally can do some useful chores.
