Get 24-70L for the new 5D?
Aug 27, 2008

Hi,

I'm a proud owner of an EOS 30D, planning to move to FF assuming the new 5D comes out at/around Photokina. My predicament is that my mainstay zoom -- the wonderful EF-S 17-55 2.8 IS will sadly have to go... The only viable option (besides primes which isn't my game for this range) is the good ole' EF 24-70 2.8 L. Not having IS is one thing, making sure I get a good copy another... but that's life. From my perspective I really have no other options, but to make the move (I guess the chances for 24-70 2.8 IS II till the end of the year are rather slim?). Still any thoughts here? My other lenses are (EF 70-200 f4 IS and EF 85mm f/1.8).

TIA.
