Hi based on my same question and advices here i understand we would have two options to set 70d gear for covering all peruses: first crop-lens-combo including 50 f1.4 + 70-200 f4L is + 60 f2.8 macro. Option 2: 24-70 f4L is + 70-200 f4L is + 100 f2.8 macro. Some professionals believe that ff lenses are not responding very well on apc crop cameras like 70d and some say its no problem you can us ff lenses on 70d just you need add a wide lens with lower focal range 10-20mm to your gear. And still even i am confusing Smiley Happy any pro advice?

thanks a lot, but i asked for 70d which will be replace to 5dmiii later on!

but i got your advice option 2 with correction, thanks

OK now you are really confusing me!  Your original title asks, Re: Best gear lens on 70d

This is the correct answer to that querry. "Option 2: 24-70 f4L is + 70-200 f4L is + 100 f2.8 macro."  ef-s 10-22mm.   :smileyhappy:

If you stick with the 70D buy these lenses and try them out before you add to them.

 

"Will be replace to 5dmiii later on! "

Now the question is, I have a 70D now but I am going to buy a 5D Mk III soon? And if that is correct the correct answer is,

"Option 2: 24-70 f4L is + 70-200 f4L is."   :smileyhappy:

 

You need to try this combo with a 5D Mk III first before you jump into other areas.  On a FF, 24mm may be wide enough and 200mm may be tele enough.  Plus this combo may focus close enough you don't need a macro.

There is no debate. This is my suggestion.  It is worth exactly what you paid for it.

shall i go for 24-70 f4 to cover general portrait and landscape, later on add 70-200 f2.8 and 50 f1.2L?

hi there, with respect, i become more sure why you recommended me for ef-s 10-22 instead of 100 f2.8, since its wider range,
and probably macro mode on 24-70 f4.
do i need in my gear, any lens with faster aperture like 50mm at f1.4 usm or 85mm at f1.8 or else?

hi, pls dont shout at me and dont be angry with me 😞
i am going to buy a caonon 24-105 f4 based on your recomendation as said: "The EF 24-105mm f4 L is the best buy in the Canon line" (even on APS-C cameras like my 70d). its relly gives me stunning sharpness!

but since i am shooting indoor also, this lens on my 70d will be: 38.4-106mm f6.4 shall i chose other lense like 50mm 1.4 or else?

or i should trust something like Tamron 16-300 made for APS-C as all-in-one (With less sharpness)?

please advice me
kind regards

Great, this plan is very economy for me since i can use 3 of those on 5dmiii. If I'm not wrong recentely i can use 24-70 f4 as my general lens from portrait to lanscape and soon ill buy those 2 u approved. Just a question regarding ef 10-20mm 3.5-4.5 usm: as u know on crop sensor camera i need wider aperture also to set my gear. Why u selected f3.5 rather than a lens like 2.8 or 1.8 or 1.4? Sorry for asking!
