Re: Which zoom to buy with 5DmarkIII?

I read some but not all replies. I have 17-40 and 24-105 that I used on a 5D1 but haven't used them in a while. I've got a 6D coming any day so I can start using them again and get some FF photos. My go to camera for the last 3 years has been 7D with 17-55 2.8 on it 80% of the time which is about the same zoom range as the 24-70 on a FF.

My suggestion is to buy the kit combo with the 24-105 and try the 24-105 and if you don't like it or if you really need 2.8, go with the more expensive 24-70. I'm under the impression that the 5D3 and 24-105 combo is much cheaper than buying them separately.

Good luck,
