so your equipment is taking the pictures and not you


just a quick one

Sure -- I'm all for quickies.

you can either climb a mountain (which I don't do because I am deeply unfit) or you can drive with your car to the top and have a cappuccino instead

doe it make a difference - of course!! One time you do it with a good pair of shoes and one time you do it with a good set of tires

I agree with the lenses - for the rest I am lost - please post some of your best images and give me an idea which quality level we are talking about?

Tough to choose, but here are a few favorites:

Canon 5D + 50 / 1.2L @ f/1.2, 1/10, ISO 3200 (minor crop)

Canon 5D + 100 / 2 + CPL @ f/5.6, 1/125, ISO 100

Canon 5D + 15 / 2.8 FE @ f/8, 1/2000, ISO 100

Canon 5D + 24 / 1.4L @ f/2.8, 1/15, ISO 400

Canon 5D + 200 / 2.8L + CPL @ f/2.8, 1/2000, ISO 100

Canon 5D + Sigma 70 / 2.8 macro @ f/2.8, 1/60, ISO 400

Canon 5D + Sigma 150 / 2.8 macro & 580EXII @ f / 4, 1/200, ISO 100

Canon 5D + 50 / 1.4 @ f / 1.4, 1/20, ISO 400

nice lenses!!

(seems like buying equipment is really your passion)

btw - I like the image too
