Spend my money :)
Mar 28, 2012

I know I know... another "please tell me which lenses to buy" post!

Well I thought I had it mapped out until the price of the camera I was dreaming of came in so high and now i have to re-consider my lens selection to compensate. Let me explain.

I am a current SONY user. I am definitely about to invest in Canon. The 5D Mkiii of course.

I will NOT buy anything but quality glass. I have been down the path before and budget shopping is well and truly off my agenda. I have $10-11,000 Australia dollars to spend.Body included.

I definately wanted a fast strong zoom and figured the EF 70-200 IS II USM.This is first and foremost for shooting my kids at sport (basketball and football/soccer).

I also want a flexible (i.e. some zoom) landscape lens. I also shoot people (not portrait... people being people) and would like to have a macro ability but think in this round of spending I may need to forgoe this element.

So I might be able to buy three lenses - that was the plan but now with the higher than expected cost, I might be up the proverbial garden creek.

So please, go ahead and throw suggestions and advice at me. New to Canon, very excited about joining their league of followers.

Thank you in advance for any assistance to a new Canon and DPreview user!
