Lemming51's previous gear

Canon EF 20-35mm F3.5-4.5 USM
Canon EF 28-105mm f/3.5-4.5 II USM
Terrific wide zoom for film EOS. Still own, though retired in favor of EF-S 15-85
mk I version. Retired from use due to "terminal" Err 01 condition. Was a sweet wide-normal zoom on my EOS 50E/Elan IIe, too long for the same purpose on my 40D.
Other gear:
  • Argus C3 35mm film rangefinder used by my grandfather
  • Argus Cintar 50/3.5 and Tele-Sandmar 100/4.5 lenses Sharp, though "slow" lenses for the C3
  • Canon AE-1 Program with FD 50 f/1.8 35mm film SLR, manual focus.
  • Canon EF 28-105 f/3.5-4.5 USM (mk I) Terrific standard zoom for film EOS, not so much for 40D. Retired as internal flex cable is faulting, Canon no longer services it.
  • Canon EOS Elan IIe (50E) 35mm film AF SLR. Wonderful implementation of ECF (Eye Control Focus)!
  • Canon Speedlite 540EZ
  • Rollei 35 (40/3.5 Zeiss Tessar) Ultracompact 35mm film camera.
