All I kept hearing was the advice to spend more on glass than the camera. I headed that advice and got the 70-200 IS 2.8 mkii along with my 7D, which was an upgrade from my T2i & Sigma 17-70.
After that, I got the 17-40 and then the 6D & 24-105 kit.
Sold all my primes. I'm sure I'll get back to them someday, but for now I need the versatility.
Mine was the trust 17-40mm f/4 followed shortly (a couple months) by the 70-200mm f/4.
Next on my list will be the 24-70 f/4 due to the size, weight, and the fact it can be used near macro for the rare times I want/need that ability.
First SLR was the EOS 600 back in '89. First DSLR the EOS 400D in December 2008.
Then in March 2010 I bought my first L lens, the 70-200 f/4 IS. After I bought my 5DII, I also bought the 17-40L
Now looking for a standard zoom, i.e. 24-70 or 24-105 but still in doubt.
