24-70. Sell it? or add another lens?
Dec 4, 2011

Hi.

I have a 24-70 on a crop and I was thinking of selling it and replace it with a standard zoom -or- add another lens. I've only $500 and here's what I thought of:

a. sell it and buy a used 17-55 (if I can find someone selling a used one)
b. keep it and add a used 17-40 L (I've known a few people with this combo)
c. keep it and add a new Tamron 17-50 non-VC or a used Sigma 17-50 OS

just a thought--d. keep it and get a used Tokina 11-16 (though there is a considerable gap 17-23---is this gap noticeable?)

I could have added other lenses but I am pretty partial to constant aperture lenses.

What do you guys think?
