I am reading up a lot on this, preparing for purchasing a 7D classic, and everyone seems to agree that the 18mp APS-C sensor is capable of excellent results, providing it is paired with a "good enough lens".
So, my question is: Which lenses ARE good enough for the 18mp APS-C sensor?
Lots of answers are: "L mark II"
So, is it only L mark II that are "good enough" for 7D? Where do you draw the line? At L-glass?
Is the 85mm f1.8 good enough? The 70-300 non-L? the 17-40L?
If someone had a list of "good enough" lenses, I would (and I think others too) appreciate it a lot. Especially where to draw the line. L mark II are WAY out of my budget, so lets set the limit to 1000$.
Which lenses are good enough (sharp and resolving power) for the 18mp APS-C sensor, below 1000$?
Come on! Give me some nice recommendations! (3rd party is fine too)
To me, the Canon 10-22 or the Tokina 11-16 is a must.
Other than that, a 24-105L for standard all around zoom and a 50 1.4 for portraits/bokeh and you're all set.
If you like macros, the 100 2.8L IS is awesome.
