Cruisin'

IvyRidge-2
I have been in a period of equilibrium since I re-bought the XSi and got the 18-135 IS. There are other lenses I want to buy but nothing really beats the 18-135, with it's combination quality and versatility. I thought about the 17-85, but similar optics-less reach. The 15-85; better optics but the variable aperture, at that price turns me off. For a couple hundred more you can get a constant aperture lens like the Sigma 17-50 OS or the Canon 17-55 IS. I feel the burn to buy something but I am really happy with the 18-135 and my 50mm 1.8. My next big purchase will be a 50D or the 17-55 IS. I also might get the sigma 30mm or a Canon 35mm for a true 50mm view.
Right now, I see myself with this lens collection before I start saving for a 17-55.

  • Canon 18-135 IS
  • Canon 50mm 1.8
  • Canon 70-300 IS
  • Sigma 30mm/Canon 35mm
  • Canon 100mm Macro
  • Sigma 17-50mm OS (for night shooting)
After those I will start saving for the following:

  • Canon 17-55 IS
  • Canon Sigma 50-150 (but they are rare)
  • 70-300 IS L
  • Canon 50mm 1.4
