(Lots of) Gear Stolen-Lens Replacement advice
Feb 11, 2014


I'm looking to replace some gear that was stolen a while back: 5DM3, 7D, 24-70 2.8L (I), 50mm 1.4, and a 70-200 2.8L non IS.  Insurance didn't cover the theft due to a technicality too detailed to get into.  I've settled on the 6d for a replacement body, but for the life of me I can't decide on what glass to get.  I loved my non IS 2.8 zoom so I'll be getting that again, but I need a complimentary lens to go with.  I'll prob also buy another 50mm also.  I can't afford to grab another 24-70, and the kit with the 24-105 lens /rebate looks tempting, but it seems that most veteran L users seem to shy away from that lens.  I do video as well and it seems that worst case scenario it would be a decent lens to use for that purpose.  What's the likelihood that I'll end up selling that kit lens?  I'm leaning toward, buying the 6d refurb, along with the non IS 2.8 which puts me at about $2600.  I do weddings from time to time, some commercial work here and there, and in between I roam the streets just shooting cityscapes and random people.  Any advice?
