... I just ordered a 16-35L f/2.8 II and a 70-200 f/2.8 II ... What to do of this addiction?

Add 300mm or 400mm f2.8 IS II will cure it ;D

Congrats on your toys
Just bought my 300mm f/2.8 IS II - hope I'm cured of my Canon, L, and II, and III addictions 8).

Don't forget the 14mm L, 17mm L TS-E, 24mm L TS-E, and most importantly, the 200mm L f/2.0! Oh, and the 8-15mm fisheye.

Damn ... this seems to go on forever ...  ;)

No kidding. I rented the 24-70 2.8 v2 and 70-200 2.8 IS v2 for a week and just had to send them back yesterday. Yea...I've got some serious gear lust right now. Come on lotto! Daddy needs some new lenses! And a new back to carry them all!

This is kind of funny. Recently I had a new bathroom installed at home, so I vowed to restrain myself purchasing new lenses until I had payed for it, but as soon as the bathroom was finished, I found myself going out and purchasing an 8-15mm fisheye zoom and a 135mm f2 in a hurry. I just couldn't hold myself back any longer  :o.

Agree. Bought a 300 II. Can't afford most lens anymore... It's not because of IQ, it's still because of money...

I recently completed modifying couple closets at home, myself.

1st photo - my kids play room(basic shelving)
2nd photo - my kids closet

I called around and asked for quotes from dif. local contractors. They wanted $200-$350 for kid playing room - basic shelving. $875 to $1200 for the kid closet.

To build kid playroom shelving, I paid $62 for woods and 2hrs of labor

To build kid closet, I paid $274 for all material and 5hrs of labor

The good news is that those are workhorse lenses and they can earn you money, unlike her shoes (that's right, I thought it, I said it!)  ;D

Although some ladies with the right shoes can also earn as much money, but that's something else!!!  :o

And you got markii's which are good until the 40mp sensors come out and the mkiii lenses come out!

Usually around that time, the cheapest smartphone will have 21 mp, making your dslr look like your Sharper Image 6 cd changer...

Man this went south quick!  :-[

Thats an old wives tale. Everyone knows its a 15mm Zeiss Distagon that cures all!  ;D
