Re: System with best "bang for buck" lenses?

Full-frame Canon. You can get cheap slow 3rd party zooms which are going to work like much more expensive premium zooms or even primes on other systems with smaller sensors.

Of course, you pay for the "cheap" lenses in many ways, including expensive bodies (a more or less decent one costs $3,500, a fast one for sports costs $6,500, even a very cheapo one is $2000), large and heavy bodies and lenses. The lenses are also loud and not suitable for video. Most of those cheap lenses are not sharp, especially in the outer area. So it is all about balance of your needs, what you consider "bang".
