Well, just for a thought, I should post this question up. Out of all the professional photographers, what would you recommend for basically Portrait/Outdoor sports/Indoor Sports/Landscape photography. Well, I also do want to save up my money for these lenses, so i came up with this equation for the lenses as shown above. And yes, hopefully you do know that new 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM II beast lens. Well, just for the fact, if you do choose either of the minor lenses (in the brackets), that means you choose either one of those lenses (or recommend) and the 70-200mm. I'm not a professional, and the reason I'm asking is because I'm planning to save up my money for a lens, and most would say the 70-200 for sure, and I would too, but just another one for backup, not that i would buy, but I would buy if I do get the chance, before the 70-200. So I'm interested in Portrait for sure! Sports both in and out, and landscape... Let the games begin!
