If it is 4K, They will make loads of money but If its not, They have much more to lose.

The dell U3011. I have a pair of them @ 850$ on a Newegg sale 6 months ago. You should see them drop again by the end of this year but a fantastically accurate monitor and calibrates like a champ.
$850 for a pair? Wow! Time to look at newegg!
It won't replace the 70-200LII but it'd give a nice alternative to shooters who don't need the size and weight and need some extra speed.I've been raving for the 135L for awhile now but it seems to get washed out by the "eermegerd 85mm 1.2!" Consistently... :/
It's a near perfect lens and it deserves a makeover with a bump in aperture and IS. That will make it a lens that I'd have absolutely no reason to own a 70-200II. Dedicated portrait photographers would flock to that prime instead of spending the weight and monies on the 70-200II.
I just love the 135L. It's the reason I like primes over zooms. Light, small, fast and affordable.
Since I don't do photography for living, I can live without 135L. The 70-200 f2.8 IS II is a MUST have lens for my shooting.
RL, do you have a favorite set of ND filters you typically like to carry? Everything takes up space and weight so I figure you have 2 or 3 that you use that work best and offer the most versatility. I've put off buying these because I figured I would eventually just purchase a variable ND filter from probably Singh-Ray with some filter adapters. But of course that's expensive so I keep putting it off. Thoughts?
can you advise them that CC licks balls please?
Thank you rusty. I know what it's like to travel around and arrive late at the hotel. You end up wanting to just sleep the night away but we could miss so many opportunities. I can't say how important it is, no matter what lens you got, to stay out a bit later and strive to make some cool photos.My last post to wrap up this thread. A final goodbye to the 17-40L for me and looking back at some of my favorite photos it captured before it's sold on evilbay.
Very cool little discussion that really makes me want to take some ND filters with me more often. Thanks for the nice walk through some of your fun images and their back story. This helps inspire me to try more stuff, even when I'm tired or not always in the mood while travelling!

As someone who uses filters - all of the time unless I'm shooting into the sun or using a CPL/ND filters - I am amazed at how some of my 4-6 year old filters look. Most of them have at least a few serious scratches on them and all of them are covered with numerous minor scratches. These are high quality filters - B+W & Hoya HD - so that's the not the issue, but obviously they are doing their job. If my front element looked like this, I'd be very sad, even though I know that it really doesn't affect image quality. It would kill the resale value. I've sold lenses with a fair bit of external wear, but perfect glass, and they've always sold well.Same here. My work is more important than cuddling my lenses front element. Fast lens swapping in and out of bags, fingerprints, residue, dust and then needing to hurry to clean them off with my sweat soaked shirt on a summer Texas wedding, the occasional spray of champagne at the reception or some booze that happens to find my lens from party happy patrons. Then take the same lens to the beach the next day for a session with the groom and bride alone with sand blowing against my lens. Go home, rinse off all the sand from my camera and wipe off my lenses.
Also, I bought the B+W 77mm XS-Pro Clear UV Haze with Multi-Resistant Nano Coating (010M) for 16-35 f/4 IS and it fits great. The inner barrel of the lens moves back & forth a lot more than any other Canon lens I've owned so I think a filter is a good idea on this lens.
