    I have a 17-40L, 50mm 1.8 and 85mm 1.8... aaaand...

    I have to say I felt that the 85mm was the most fun tool of all in what I do.

    Best lens I've bought would be the ZD 12-60 f/2.8 - 4. Quality, flexibility and durability all rolled into one.

    Good combinations...I assume you also carry a flash...

    Thinking of getting one 10-20mm and get rid of the 15 to 30mm.

    flash & mini tripod sometimes oni, full size tripod rare. that'z assuming if shooting locally, cos if holiday i will tend to bring more than less gear. not that i so fit to lug heavy stuff & enjoy myself at the same time.

    i dun mind lugging my full size pod, but my family members dun seem to like it.

    Tokina 28-70 F2.6 - this is such a gem. Mounted on my cam most of the time, long after I have forgotten how much I paid, bought used.
