Just curious as to what people's thoughts are concerning the next kit lens for the new 5D series that should be announced soon.  If you think a prime lens or other, state what you think it may be  ;)

I'd have thought if it can be bought with a kit lens it would be an IS lens

I think Canon is stuck going with an AF lens. That's not what I would like but I think that's what will happen.

I would like to see a choice. Body only, 24-105 kit or new 24-70 f/2.8 II

Edit: 2/17 Senior Moment - I thought I said IS lens. Also probably "need" a zoom.

It will either be the 24-105/4L IS or (hopefully) a newer version of it.

It will NOT be the 24-70 II, a lens that costs almost as much as the body now. It will not be a prime as they are not a general use lens.

If lens in the bundle is 700$+ off, then why not? :)

Kind of curious Canon stating they would like to promote aps-c users to FF eventually and then putting FF gear north of 2K... Assumption being aps-c users getting wealthier eventually?

Only way I would get  a 24-70 mk2 is as a kit lens on 5D mk3 or x or whatever it is going to be, if reasonably priced... My vote is also 24-105 IS as the kit lens... Perhaps the rumored high mp cam (3D?) can be bundled with the new 24-70 mk2...  IMHO...

Cheers!

I believe that the 24-105L will remain the 'main' kit lens for the next 5D Kits lens (and I voted as such). My take on it, is that 'kit lenses' (even for the 5D level) are 'historically' a more all round lens - and perhaps a bit slower than a 'faster' lens (that's why I see the 24-70 mk II f2.8 as a more 'specialist' lens). :)

The 24-105L is a well rounded, great lens - and can be used by many FF users to capture quite a variety of beautiful photos, from landscape, to portraits, and various photo genres in between. Ok the 24-105L is not a 'dedicated lens' for those applications, but it can do a number of things 'quite well' - which is why I believe it's a good 'kit lens'.

Of course, some resellers might 'bundle' other lenses, including the 24-70 (mk I old stock or new mk II) with the next 5D.  And others might 'bundle' / reduce the price of a prime with it.   ;)

I don't have a FF camera, but I had 2 x APS-C Canon camera bodies, including the 7D.  I think the 15-85mm should be the 'kit lens' for that camera, but most times it wasn't bundled as such.  I use the 15-85mm as my general 'walk around' lens, and it's focal length and usability (IS, USM, etc) work well - though when I need a specialist application, I'll use one of my other lenses, eg UWA, 100mm USM macro, 70-300mm L, etc.

The 24-105L is the 'most similar' to the 15-85mm for full frame, and has a very good focal range.  I'm interested to read more people's thoughts / takes / perspectives. I have used a 5D, and know that many FF users find the 24-105L their 'go to lens' for many situations.

Cheers, and regards all!   8)

I'm not a brand-fanatic. What I do appreciate is using my 7D and 350D cameras along with a host of lenses & many accessories to capture quality photos, and share with friends.

That would be awesome... but unlikely.

Aren't they all AF lenses?


I'd probably say it'll be the 24-105...  but i'm hoping (real hard) its the 24-70, and at a good price...
