Re: What’s in your trinity?

Trinity? I'm afraid I've more like a twentinity, but here's my surprisingly good unity:

EF Zoom 28-300 mm f/3.5-5.6L IS USM

I bought it because the price was discounted by 30% by the dealer. They probably had found out that it's a rather odd piece, difficult to circulate, and now they just wanted to get rid of it.
Considering the range, you could think it would be an expensive turd, but it turns out the main issue with it is distortion at the short end.
For some subjects, it's not noticeable. For others, the 1DX Mark II is able to correct it on the fly, if you shoot jpegs.

For the kind of sports photography I do quite frequently, the trinity would be

EF Zoom 70-200 mm f/2.8L IS II USM
EF 135 mm f/2L USM
EF 300 mm f/2.8L IS II USM
