Which lenses to choose for 5D mark II
Jul 4, 2010

I am an amateur but I would like to invest more for my photography passion so I decided to buy a Canon EOS 5D Mark II.

I like to shoot lanscape and indoor (monument) and sometimes portraits. I also enjoyed a telezoom for candid portraits & wildlife shooting.

Considering the budget, I am hesitating between these combination of lenses:

1. 24-105 + 16-35 + 50 (F1.4) : generalist + very wide & fast zoom + portraits BUT no telezoom

2. 17-40 + 70-200 (non IS) + 50 (F1.4) : no generalist (will use 17-40 instead) but with telezoom

Your advice will be appreciated. Thank you very much.
