Lightbulb Re: Thinking of buying a 7-14 & 35-100

While I really enjoy using the 7-14, it is not used that much.

The 14-35 lives on the camera.

The 50mm f/2 Macro + 25mm Ext gets quite a bit of use.

The 1.4 Multiplier is handy

I too am seriously considering the 35-100.

My 50-200 is rarely used

Strangely the 70-300 lives on another body for grab shots of the "goings on" in the watermeadow out the front of my house.

The bottom line is always get the best glass for that which you work at most.

Download "exposure plot" from http://www.vandel.nl/ and set it to produce a graph of the focal lengths of all your images and see what is the best lens that suits your style of shooting.

Have fun
