To be honest, I don't know where you are looking. This information is available on the Canon web sites, and also on the lens test web sites (,, the digital picture, lenstip, etc.)

The only option I could find in a nonEF option, only EF-S, which I prefer to avoid if possible. If you have any EF option you would like to suggest, please shoot it my way!

don't go 24-105, it is not that good of a ff lens.

70-200 II is a beast and expensive

your T4i will be a valuable second camera to you someday

stay light weight

practice with 18-55 IS - a good lens.

The two lenses I'd get would be:

1st - 100L

2nd - new 35 F2 IS.

get use to these first. They will be forever lenses.


good luck!


Agree with this one, my plan also, I'm on #2 already.  Waiting that to be available here in the Philippines.

Me just added a 10-22 for UWA
