TS-E 17mm L
MP-E 65mm
200 f/2 L

This year, I was able to acquire my first dream lens: the 85mm f/1.2 L. But as with so many people who can afford such lenses, I find myself lacking the time to use it enough because I'm always working. It's a vicious circle.

Even if I had the money for a 200mm f/2 L, I don't think I would get one because I'd be paranoid about damaging it. I wouldn't be able to relax while I used it. It's just too precious. Hell, I'm already paranoid with my 85mm f/1.2 L.

If u had the money for a 200mm f/2 youd also have the money for getting it repaired. Plus the lens is built very sturdy :D

Well, I had the money for an 85mm f/1.2, but I still worry about scratching that rear element.

Honestly, I don't even want to be so filthy rich that I don't worry about thousand dollar scratches. It's a lot of money for a lens, and I will always respect that. Plus, the 200mm f/2.8 or the 70-200mm f/2.8 are sufficiently amazing to suit my needs.

But, yes, it's still an enticing lens to dream about. ;-)

In addition to what I own...it would be the:

24 1.4L
85 1.2L
300 2.8II

Those would be the most practical additions to what I do.

Tough one.  As I don't have a lot of gear...

Canon 70-200 f/2.8L IS II (simple one, but when I use it at other places its a hell of a dream)
24-70 II (I'm getting one soon.. so a 14mm f/2.8L would suffice)
Canon TS-E 17mm f/4L 

Mine's a pretty basic one.  If I got enough jobs I could easily achieve that.
Canon 5D Mark III and Canon 60D; EF-S 10-22; EF 70-200 f/4L IS; EF 24-70 f/2.8L II; 580EX II.  Soon to add: 50 1.2L, 135 f/2L, 8-15L

These are too expensive but nice to have...
Canon 200-400mm F4L 1.4TC
EF 14mm f/2.8L II USM

Thinking of the Samyang 14 mm as it is much more sensible, budget wise.

To get a wide angle option on my 7D:
EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM or (more likely) Sigma 10-20mm f/4-5.6 EX DC HSM
5D3, 5D2, Sony α6000, G16 | SY14 f/2.8, Ʃ20 f/1.8, 24 f/2.8, 35 f/2, Ʃ35 f/1.4A, 50 f/1.8 I, Ʃ50 f/1.4 EX, 100L Macro, 17-40L, 24-105L, 70-200 f/2.8L IS II, 1.4x II, 70-300L, 100-400L | E-mount: SY12 f/2, Ʃ19 & 30 f/2.8 EX DN, 16-70 ZA OSS, 55-210 OSS, Metabones SB | FT-QL, AE-1P | FD(n) & FL lenses

My three:

  • 300mm f/2.8L IS II
  • 200-400mm f/4L IS Extender 1.4x
  • 600mm f/4L IS II

Actually, I'm almost 1/3 of the way to realizing my dream - I pre-ordered the 600 II just over a month ago.   ;D

 :o





 ;) nice
