    Lens Lust

    What lens do you lust after the most

    Assume that you almost have enough money (whatever that amount is) for it....but not quite. And you'd be damned guilty getting it. But you just NEED it so bad.

    Strangely mine is a 28 1.4 AF-D

    I've got lens lust for the 16-35 2.8 L at the moment.

    I know I'm going to go FF and this lens would just be awsone since I use my wide a lot, having those couple of extra stops would be unreal! Will I actually get it? Probably not, damn money!

    Mine changes a bit...

    At the moment I'm craving some extra length after having shot a panorama with multiple 200mm images of a windfarm from a large distance. As getting physically closer to the windfarm requires permission from unknown landowners (and a 4WD) more mm was what i was craving!

    My lens lust list:
    • 28 f1.4
    • 200 f2
    • 200-400
    • big boy prime (ie. 400/500/600)

    hmmmmmmmm

    500 f4L IS - But would settle for a 100-400 L IS USM which would probably be more practical for me

    MPE 65 Macro

    Ideally the Canon EF 800mm f/5.6 IS USM, but at > $15k I'm unlikely to see one anytime soon.


    But in the terms of the original question: Canon TS-E 17mm f/4L (tilt-shift), almost got that one for Christmas but opted for the 85L instead.

    Re: Lens Lust

    85 1.2 or 16-35 2.8. Either would satisfy me for a week or two, both would complete my kit.

    Well, I wouldn't mind either the Olympus 14-35mm f/2 zoom or the 35-100mm f/2 zoom. Either would be nice and both twice as nice. I think there should be a place in most people's kit bags for a f/2.0 zoom.

    I reeaally want the 70-200 f/2,8L

    Even though the price is so good at the moment, I'd still feel guilty.

    If nikon announces a 24 1.4G AF-S next week, would that change your mind?

    Personally I lust for a 200 f2 VR, or maybe the 58 1.2 noct
