15-85 for walkaround and if you can take the 50 1.8 for night shots or rent another fast lens such as 28mm 1.4.

i recently took some shots of a humming bird with a 70-200 L II lens and a 2x extender on a 5D MkIII - i thought they came out pretty well to be honest, i understand that they arent pinpoint crisp, whether that was my newness at the camera or the limitations of the extender im not sure but I can happily send you examples?
I'm sorry if any Zeiss fans find my opinion insulting, but to me this looks like yet another solution to a non-existing problem - at least as far as Canon cameras are concerned. I am not even going to consider the possibility that this would be a Tamron/Tokina "cheap" alternative - this is Zeiss, after all - so the only way to market this lens would be on the basis of quality.
Now, the Canon 70-200 f/2.8 IS II is good. Really, really good - so good in fact that a "better" lens would probably not produce any meaningful improvements for most users - so why should anyone want this lens - for the "snob" factor, yes, but what else?
Then there is the issue of IS and AF - sure, a MF lens like the 15mm one may be just fine, but for a zoom? This lens would need AF to be competitive - otherwise it would just be a way for people to show that have more money than common sense.
The 5d is a pro camera. I am sure those who make a living from photography will not be too happy but will buy it.stop complaining about the price... for god sake.
if you don´t have the money buy a rebel.
the camera will have a lot more improvements then what is listed here.
and im sure it´s worth the money.
I don't understand your complaint. People have invested a lot into their systems, and they truly believed that they were going to be able to have a somewhat affordable FF camera, and 3.5k is way out of reach for most people.
Sure we can be a used 5D2, but most people don't want a pre owned camera (lenses are a different story).
I don't think it's fair to say that people need to stop complaining about the price. It is an enormous increase from the previous model. Whether or not it's a smart financial move for Canon is a different story, but I say people have the right to feel a little upset.
