I like to travel a lot and loves a large zoom. My recent lens, EFs18-200, which is used with a 7D, has broken and has to be replaced and I'm looking for a high quality lens in the wide-tele segment. When looking at the L lenses the only one that seems to fit my needs when travelling is the L 28-300. However, it really has a 'come and get me, I have a nice lens' approach, when travelling, it is very heavy, expensive and it was launched back in 2004. So Im struggeling wheather to buy this 28-300 lens or buy the EFs 18-200 once again although I don't appreciate its quality very much. I would really appreciate tips about alternatives from you guys out there and opinions about what could be expected at the Photokina coming up in september. Does anyone think there will be 'mark II' of the 28-300 L lens or variations thereof?
