I have lens envy! I'd like to get the f/1.2L. Beautiful shots of a beautiful subject.

I would love the 1.2, but just can't drop the cash on it.

My Trinity is 28mm 1.8, 50mm 1.4 and 85mm 1.8 and love them all.

I've got a minolta 101 with a bunch of lenses but I don't use it much anymore now that I have a digital SLR. I have a Nikon D7 with two lenses.

Very nice. I need some shorter lenses, or a good macro. I am more weighted in longer lenses (24-70, 70-200).

I would love to have the L primes holy grail of 24mm, 50mm and 85mm, but way to much to spend on glass.

I had a 50 1.8 and it did take good pictures, but the focus is very slow and it would focus hunt a lot in low light.

My gear list is:

5D
7D
28mm 1.8
50mm 1.4
85mm 1.8
100mm 2.8 macro (non L)
17-40mm
24-105mm
70-200mm 2.8 IS
1.4 II tc

I read somewhere Canon made a 1000mm f 2.8L The lens was like $100,000. IIRC they didn't sell many but talked about one or two going to oil sheiks.

Funny thing is when I saw this subject line I thought someone was going to start a thread about pretty girls.

I've got a 30D and two lenses right now, the 24-70 f/2.8L and the 70-200 f/2.8L. I'm holding out for the 5DmkIII which should appear sometime before the end of the year. It should have better auto-focus than the mkII, and maybe higher ISO and 28mp sensor. Though with the earthquake in Japan, announcement and release may be delayed. After that I have my eye one a wider assortment of lenses...some primes, a good macro.

Do the math. The body aperture is only 50mm across. The 50mm 1.0 had to have glass removed to make room for the electronics. It wouldn't be possible to make a 1000mm f2.8 lens.

Garilia, look at the first post, that is where you will find the salacious photos
I saw the Ultegra crank in the first post. I was hoping to see more tastefully posed naked parts, instead it's been men comparing the sizes of their lens, or talking about the one that got away.
