Re: 17-55 or 24-105?

Great recommendation. Thanks. SO following your advice, with the
24-105 in the bag, is the 10-22mm the logical next for "coverage"?
I'm thinking so... Seems like the 24-105 would be the walk around
lens with the 10-22 in the bag for special shots... I'm about ready
to pull the trigger on the whole deal (Thinking 10-22, 24-105, and
50 1.4 for now, 70-xxx later.) What do you think?

Thanks a ton, the whole discussion is perfect for my current

You're welcome.

With the 24-105 as the cornerstone of any great lineup, the next widest option, depending on your mount type, would naturally be the 10-22 on the wide end for EF-S; and it's the best of breed by far. (However, I own a Sigma 12-24 because it is uniquely good in its range and works with both mount types, and I primarly shoot with a 5D). On a 5D, the 16-35 or 17-40 would generally be my wide zoom choice. The 50 f/1.4 is about as good a prme starting point as exists. So, yes, I think you're absolutely headed in the right direction, with the 70-300 IS next.

Best of luck,
