Re: 24 mm f/2.8 IS
In reply to Forrest, Jan 29, 2013

thanks...I've heard it is an amazing lens! I do have the 24-70 2.8L though. I'd prefer primes, but I will be super budget backpacking in hostel dorms from anywhere from 3 months to a couple of years...working very hard on disguises to make my camera bag look like it's not got anything valuable in it!

I'm trying to keep the kit as simple as possible. I have the 24-70L and the 70-200L, so just need a superwide to fit in there...and be small.

I think the 16-35L was actually smaller than the 17-40 L but also it was twice the price...and this stuff is going to get quite banged around...and the super wide will not be used all that much I think unless I use it on the 7d. I think for most purposes I think the 24 (on the 24-70) will be wide enough for most uses on the 6D.
