Lenses Good for Both FF and APS-C?
Aug 22, 2010

Having sold an extensive and expensive Leica outfit, I've been trying to decide between a 5D MarkII and the 7D. One option though is to go with both bodies, the former primarily for landscapes and the latter primarily for wildlife.

Of so it would be great to get 2-3 lenses that work well in both formats and maybe one or two others that work well just in one format.

Weight is a factor, at 70 years of age two pound plus lenses are out.
For more than wide angle or fast normal lenses, IS is a must.

And cost is always a variable. $1000 lenses are fine but it would be nice to average the cost at no more than that.

So what 3-5 lenses would you recommend?
