22-24 MP, 10 FPS, hybrid 5DM3 AF system, F8 AF( dreaming possibly), same to slightly better IQ than 70D, DPAF.

Maybe it is for users with self control issues?

LOL, funny and unfortunately true.  Someone has too much time on his hands or loves to ponder.

I have a boring job and very few sexy co-workers to otherwise occupy my attention.

I know what you mean.  It would make the job more enjoyable but completion dates would be seriously skewed.

I agree very interesting.  I noted that the wildlife folks had pretty much the same lens recommendations.  The motorsports shooter gave just about the same recommendations also.  I could see the 200-400 as being a favorite due to the extender and the weight savings in travel offered by a zoom tele.

I really believe Canon had originally intended to kit the 7D with the 15-85. Both released at the same time and the 15-85 is pretty much the EF-S equivalent of the 24-105.

But there was so much wailing and whining when the 7D price was announced (go back and see some of the comments from 40D owners at the time, who were incredibly bitter about the pricing), I think they realized they couldn't package the two together and have a competitively priced kit.

If they don't introduce a new kit lens, I can see the 15-85 being kitted with the 7DII. Could also use the 17-55 since they cut the price of that lens.

Either option would make a great kit.  It will be interesting to see how this goes.

Great review.  Sounds like an excellent lens to recommend to beginners to see if they will want/need such a lens as the grow in the hobby.

Lenses / Re: Looking for an wideangle lens about 20mm

As far as ultra wide angle lenses go there are only a hand full from any manufacturer that aren't terrible.

You think the EF-S 10-22 is terrible? Not that the OP is looking for EF-S lenses, but I asked since you include them in your list.
I think it is actually pretty good, and I have used it for more than 2 years.

He missed quite a few of the crop zoom lenses.  I agree with you on the 10-22.

I consider the EF-s 17-55 my first due to the IQ. ;D  By designation the 100-400L.  I bought it for birding and am very pleased.  It has changed my perception on the "need" for L lenses with its IQ.  All of the EF-s lenses I have and have had are no slouches in IQ though.

2) Whom they are going to sell EF-S 10-22 to now? (To the guys who crave for 7DII? No chance! Since all of them are bird-shooters who do not care about UW.)

Hey I have a 7D and crave the 7DII, shoot birds and have the 10-22. ;D
