Funny how in previous threads everyone wanted RAW video on Canon DSLRs, and now that it can be done everyone in this thread is so MEH about it, hahaha.

Great news ! ... my 5DIII has an even longer, and more productive future!
aside ... why doesn't Canon hire these guys (ML), and blow every other brand out of the water?
I also have a 5DIII. The 24-105 is a very, very good lens. It is good at everything but it is the best at nothing. You can find a prime that will do any task better. Today I hauled around a bag of lenes and left this home. I ended up with some good shots, but kept changing lenses.95% of what I took was between 24 and 105. So I ended up cutting a photowalk short because I was tired and on top of that I got some dust on the focusing screen because I was constantly changing lenses in the wind. I should have just taken the 24-105L. Larger point. If you are going for a walk about, this is your lens. If you are going to a specific event, with a specific task, you can probably find something better. Public speaking? I'd go with the super sharp 135 f2L, but you will give up the IS. Keep your 24-105L. Leave it on your camera unless you have a specific task.
Start with a 50mm F1.4 (Sigma/Canon or a 40mm pancake though I like the F1.4 more than F2.. You can acquire later whatever you think you need. You can also sell it if you find out later that you don't need it. A 24-105 F4 L is also a good start. You can sell it later if you don't need it also without losing much (maybe gain a little bit more if you purchase it as a kit lens).
They will probably go bankrupt before the end of the year.... but what seems to to be hard for many is that it now seems that this particular third party lens is actually better than its original counterpart...
Canon has been over taken in the sensor department by Sony/Nikon and now they're being overtaken in the lens department.
1.8 + OS = dont think so!!!!
