Going Full Frame

Okay, here’s some pleasurable day-dreaming…

At some future date, Canon is going to come out with a consumer-priced full-frame DSLR. (“Consumer-priced” means less than $2,000, kit lens included.) Certainly within the next 5 years.

And I shall pounce on it.

What lenses should I buy for this camera? Well, I can take my cue from Vistek!

One of the really nice things about the Vistek website is that they show product lists in order of popularity. And since a lot of photographers of all stripes shop at Vistek, these product lists are very representative of what’s considered best overall for most consumers.

So here is a list of lenses I would get for my full-frame beauty:

  1. Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM – $2,149
  2. Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L USM – $1,569
  3. Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 USM – $480
  4. Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro USM – $780 (I already have this lens)
  5. Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM – $1,849
  6. Canon EF 24mm f/1.4L II USM – $1,949

Frak! That’s $8,800 worth of high-quality glass!
