L Frenzy

When I started spending a bit more money on camera kit a few years ago I avoided what I considered the overly expensive Canon L lenses and picked up a few cheaper Sigma EX lenses. However it wasn’t going to be possible for me to resist the red ring for ever.

Marc started me off on the slippery slope last year by selling me a 300/4 L IS for a very good price, this soon became invaluable at various air displays. Then earlier this year I picked up a 5D along with a 24-105/4 L IS kit and this soon became my favourite lens.

I was quite happy with my two L lenses until a few weeks ago when Simon decided to offer me his 17-40/4 L, and I followed it up this week with a 100-400 L IS to complete my current quartet. I can’t see me needing any more L lenses now, however there’s always the possibility that a 70-200/2.8 L IS will tempt me to open my wallet again…

    You clearly haven’t used the 17-40 yet otherwise you’d have noticed that it’s not IS…
