    You can just one shot buy a 70-200 2.8 L if you want.

    Anyway, wondering why you want to switch. Don't waste your hard-earned money.

    If I buy those sexy lenses, then I won't have money to dine at Li Bai anymore...

    If you want to carry 1 lens around... and good one for trips would be the 24-105 F4L IS. If you want a good general portrait lens, you can pick up the 24-70 F2.8L.

    If you want to do journalistic stuff, then you will probably need 2 lens... 1 short and 1 long mounted on 2 cameras, and probably use your legs to cover the middle range. So the 2 lenses above will not do.

    But then again style plays an important part in the choice of lens... so the textbook recommendations may not work out for you.

    i dont think so.

    i reckon it will be good for portraits.and it being in white...aiyo...i'm drooling already.

    why want to switch ah?honestly, no reason.just really want to try canon.

    it's like pc and mac, and i finally bought mac too.

    the 2 lens you mentioned.what color are they?both black?got white?

    the 24-70 sounds good.

    btw, the crop factor is 1.3x?so 24mm equates to about 31.2mm?

    No lah... not nice to disturb your family dinner. Besides, the wife will be freaked out if I walked up and talked to a girl I knew from a forum.

    Can someone please poison jeanie here with the FOV from a 1.5/1.6x crop camera vs 1.3x crop with a 16-35/17-40 range?

    They are all white. All pro canon lenses are white. You will need to gaffer them to make them black.

    Correct about the crop factor. These lenses are actually better for full frame.

    My brother is a photojournalist. He runs around with 2 white lenses... fully gafferred to black.

    Unfortunately, it is a very good lens for travelling and portraits. But I know la, heavy. -_-

    depends what you want to shoot..

    given its really great 6400 ISO performance, if you paired this with a big aperture lens e.g. a 50mm 1.4, or even a 85mm 1.2 or 50mm 1.2 , or a 135 mm F2.0.. u are looking at a new dimension in available light photography..

    similarly, if sports is what you want... with the new expanded AF points and better algorithms, a fast lens like the 70-200 etc will also suit..

    really is all up to you.

    however, i personally wouldnt get a 24-70 when the tamron 28-75 gives just as much optical performance for 1/4 the price. unless of course u need the weather sealing and the focusing speed.

    i want quiet and fast focusing lens.preferably 2.8.
    so tamron, sigma are out.
    kind of 'silly' to get aftermarket lenses when you get the mark3 if you ask me.
    (dont flame me.personal opinion only).

    Sorry mate but both 24-70 and 24-105 are BLACK although those are L lenses. I'm not sure which lens gets white colour... at least 70-200 mm is already white...

    If I recall correcltyl most of Canon short primes are black too. Only better L zoom lenses and long primes are white...

    Others please correct...

    that's what i remembered too.i only had the impression canon long lenses are white.

    the rest (short range) are black.
