So I own a Canon 50D and just yesterday fell in love with the Canon 1Ds Mark II, so I found one for a good price and bought it. The camera is simply amazing, I had no idea how much hype it used to have.

Point is, I had three lenses for my 50D which I dislike now as the quality is simply poor. When placed on the 1Ds, you realize how much crappier they are.

I have a:

Canon 50mm f1.8

Canon 28-135

Sigma 70-300 Macro

I've been reading a lot and see many talking quite highly about the Canon 24-70 f2.8, Canon 24-105 and the 17-40 f4.

Any recommendations? What do I do? I know the 24-70 is great but is it worth the price? Even secondhand its more expensive than the 24-105 and far more than the 17-40.



For a crop model (like the 50D) look at the Sigma 17-50 2.8 EX DC OS but if you intend to eventually get full frame then the 24-70 2.8
