For the purpose of marketing my work...to attract new customers.

I was in Europe in October and share many of the same lenses you do. In my opinion, you are not going to want to carry around the 70-200mm. Its heavy and you will stand out like a sore thumb. I brought my 24-70mm 2.8 II and used it 95% of the time. The 24 TSE would be nice but do you want to lug around a tripod? I really recommend to go light and simple, your back and feet will thank you. Plus you attract attention walking around with all that expensive gear. Bring your favorite 2-3 lenses and call it good. Remember to enjoy yourself and don't spend your whole time taking pictures or you will miss out on truly getting a good experience. And don't keep your wallet in your back pocket... the pick pockets are really that bad!
You can check out my pictures here:
I took the one off my MkI over 8 years ago, it is mint condition and a completely different colour to the lens it used to match exactly.
Or this, starting at about 0:23...
For those of us who are lucky enough to own a 1D-X or a 5D-III, one has to ask what took Kelby so long to see the benefits in features and image quality these cameras have over what he has previously been shooting.
Sure, Kelby is entertaining and his books are helpful at times as reference materials. Do I care what cameras he shoots? About as much as he cares about what cameras I shoot.
I was amused by a friend last week who reported that on a recent visit to MoMA in NY it was overrun with tourists taking photos of the art with their iPhones.... (Perhaps, given how crowded it gets, that was the only way they could actually look at any of it.)
From there, it's a short step to skipping the real version altogether, and just mouse-clicking your way through MOMA's virtual tour...
I've heard people in other threads talking about how they don't care about video functionality. I don't get it. How can someone love making images and completely dismiss motion pictures?
I do both and it only seems natural that if you like one you would like the other. I just can't wrap my head around it only wanting one. I can understand people having a preference, but to buy a $3000 body an never shoot video on it? Really?
In my opinion these cameras are set when it comes to photo features. They don't need to get any better than they already are. With maybe one exception, AF speed/accuracy during liveview. It's video features that are far behind where they should be and that should be the main focus right now of these camera manufacturers.
I'm waiting for the 75mp camera from Canon, everything else is just for amateurs. Once I get that, I can FINALLY take the special shots that are locked away in my mind that none of my current sad gear can achieve. Oh I can't wait for that day.
