24-105, 70-200 and the 40/50. 70-200 is nice for the parades, shows, animal safari, etc. 24-105 as a general walk around. The 40 or 50 for a night at Downtown Disney and the like.

I still believe that a prime is sharper than a zoom if they were made of the same quality around the same time (i.e. year of release). The 24-70 II is the only flat-out exception to that rule that I've seen.
Has anyone gotten there hands on the lens yet? Would it worth getting the 35 1.4 for crop despite the 30 being specifically built for crop?
I saw the headline "new bigger savings from B&H". The lens I purchased yesterday, the 24-70 f2.8 ii is now $2099 vs $2049 I paid yesterday. How is this better??? My attempt at posting this earlier was blocked.
So basically this is a 200-560mm f/4-5.6 lens? Now, due to the IS, if it is a highly portable (hand-holdable) lens ... great for sport and stalking game. If not, still, what's the point?
[T]he 5D Mark III does not present such a technological leap[....]
Erm, that's complete bollocks.
Best autofocus system of any camera on the market at the time of its release, best high ISO performance of any camera on the market at the time of its release, best video of any consumer DSLR....
There's a whole hell of a lot more to a camera than just its megapickle count.
Anybody who claims that the 5DIII isn't a big deal isn't a photographer or is just plain clueless.
It may well be the case that the advancements made in the 5DIII aren't relevant to your particular type of photography. And, if all you do is low ISO work of static subjects, you'd be exactly right.
But that's such a marginal part of photography that's already been so well served that it's ludicrous to suggest that that's all that matters.
So you are saying the 5D Mark III's AF and ISO performance is better than the 1DX? My point is many people upgraded just to have the latest and greatest. I would bet you 95% of 5D Mark III upgraders never go above ISO 640
