New Lenses
#1
Replaced my 20D and 17-40mm F4L today. Tommorrow I am picking up the Canon 24-70mmF2.8L and 70-200mmF2.8L IS. A little worried about the 24-70 as I've read mixed reviews. Some really think this lens is the worst of the Ls for some reason. But there is nothing else I can consider in this focal range. I don't want a third party lens. I don't want to wait for the 24-105 IS. The wider aperature means more to me than the IS. So I guess I'll find out for myself how good this lens is. If any one here has the 24-70 canon let me know what your expereinces are.

Another 20D. I really have no interest in waiting for the new 5D. my 17-40 will give me all the wide I require right now on the 1.6 sensor . Besides if I got the 5D I wouldn't be able to get one of the L lenses I want.
My question is now I've been doing some reading and it seems the 70-200 IS has some problems with the IS. It locks up some cameras. Oh well I guess I'll just take my chances and if it happens maybe I'll return it and get the non IS version.

Well I got a chance to play around with the 70-200mm F2.8 IS lastnight. I can tell this will turn out to be a beautiful relation ship. Tonight I pickup my 24-70mmL and 580Ex.
Standing at the door of my house lastnight I snapped off a quick one of my daughter (before she could duck)

That is also the one I will keep by default on the camera.

Well since my other alternative will be the 70-200mm 2.8 IS, I'm not going to complain much about the 24-70. But yes it is considerably heavier than the one I was keeping on the body. The 17-40mm F4L
