What 3 lenses do you dream of and long to own?
« on: September 25, 2012, 03:29:24 AM »
200mm F2 - oh so sharp, portrait heaven

600mm F4 IS USM II - I know I'll never own this in my lifetime @ 13k but it would be incredible I'm sure for wildlife (came close with a 400mm 5.6 and a 7D = 640 :)

TS-E 17mm - the bokeh on this lens is fantastic, presently don't own a TS-E lens but would make this a first.
Thanks

Any one of the big whites really, 300 2.8, 400 2.8, 500 F4- not fussed which!
    Tilt shift  17 or 24
 Canon ultrawide lens for landscapes similar to Nikon 14-24

 Sadly I don't think I'll ever be able to justify the cash for one of the superteles but there's always renting!  :)
7D / EF-S 10-22 / 17-40L / 70-200 f4L IS / EF-S 60 macro

400mm f2.8L IS Mark II, 500mm f4L IS Mark II and 600mm f4L IS Mark II.

Just look at the attached sample picture and you will understand my longing. Currently I consider myself severely focal length limited (max focal length of 200mm, not counting my 2x converter), so birding is a somewhat restricted area for me.

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
EOS 1D X, EOS M, and lots of lenses
