    Giving up the awesomeness why? I really like the shots you've taken in the corners with that lens...

    My guess is that he has or is on the verge of pulling the trigger on a 1D, which can't mount EF-S lenses (the lenses protrude to far into the mirror box and only work on 1.6x crop cameras).

    Congrats on the 1D! EF 16-35 f/2.8 to replace?

    I was thinking of the 24-70 2.8 first as a walk around lens then the 16-35 added later if I really miss the wide since I am keeping the 11-22 for the 50D for now.

    I'm gonna miss the 17-55 for the IS. This lens has created some amazing images and does magical things with stage light.

    First I was going to get a 1D Mark IV (coming out in a few weeks) but after looking at all of the trouble people have had with Canon high end cameras for a year after they are first released, the fact I would have to upgrade to Adobe CS4 and the fact that I really don't need a lot of the new features like video mode, ultra high ISO etc., plus the fact that I could get a 1d Mark III for half the price, I decided to go with the Mark III. I was kind of worried about it having only 10 mpx but the photos I have seen are incredible and show that high megapixels are not as important as I suspected. I also talked to a photog at the Kings game that has 2 of them and he confirmed that the quality is fine on the Mark III.

    I'm keeping the 50D as my second camera and have an extra 30D now if anyone is interested in getting a quality pro-sumer camera cheap.

    I love the 24-70, definitely one of my favorite zooms. Really good flare control, nice and sharp with good contrast, there is a little barreling on the wide end, but it isn't bad. I think you will find it a worthy brethren to the 17-55.

    Sold! Wow, lenses are a good investment. I had that one for two years and got thousands of awesome pics from it and then sold it for just a few hundred less than I paid. Way better return than a two year old camera body. 24-70 arrives tomorrow! I'll miss that 17-55 IS, best lens evar. (sniff)

    The 24-70 f/2.8 with the Big Gold N on the barrel that I bought when I bought my D3 has been the everyday walkaround lens that is more often on that body than not since the day I bought it. Fabulous lens.

    20mm prime coming soon!! Also, perhaps, a 105mm f/2.0DC for portraits. Gotta love retroactive pay raises!

    I was thinking that the next would be some ultra wide prime because even when I have a wide zoom I always make it as wide as possible so might as well have a fixed width. For now I'll stick with the 11-22 on the 50D as the wide option, the 24-70 on either camera from there and then the 70-200 after that. All bases covered.

    I'm getting the 20mm for event candids and as a light-weight lens for a backpacking trip I hope to take next Summer (I want to hike Mt. Whitney again). It's nice and wide with little distortion compared to my 14mm, and it weighs like half of what the 14 does.
