That thread was started some time ago. Now, it's summer, many people are on a vacation.
So, what will your next lense or lenses be?
In the next coming months, I'm going to sell the EF-S 17-85mm lens and buy the 24-105mm f/4L, 50mm f/1.8 II, 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 USM, 17-40mm f/4L and 70-200mm f/4L.
I will first buy the 24-105 and sell the 17-85, then I'll buy the 18-55 and 50 II, 18-55 is only for cockpit shots as 24-105 isn't wide enough. I will buy the 17-40 and 70-200 later as I want sharper telezoom shots and sharper wide-angle shots. 50 1.8 because it's sharp and on a pretty nice portrait focal length.
I am not planning to buy this lenses very soon, just after about 6-16 months.
I look forward to see what you are going to buy...

Well, I just got my new DSLR, so I won't be buying new lenses anytime soon. Also, there are not many cheap, good-quality lenses for the 4/3 mount Olympus uses, so I'm going to have to dish out some serious bucks for a new lens. In a few years, then, when I have a lot of money to waste, I'll hopefully buy this lens, or it's successor.

After finally getting an excellent tele-zoom (Nikkor 80-200 f/2.8) a few months ago, I'm now more interested in the other side of the spectrum. I'd love to get one of those 10-20 or 12-24 digital wide zooms... They're quite difficult to get though, it seems.

I am not an expert in aviation photography yet. But next time I am going to change from usual digital camera to SLR, especially to Canon EOS 350d. Probably I will take the KIT version including the 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 USM lens.
I know there are many different situations that require many different lenses. But can anybody recommend an additional lens for aviation photos, e.g. for inbound a/c or so?

Talk about a big lens! 300-800mm by Sigma. Oh well, that's more a dream than my next lens. If I were to buy one, it'd certainly be the 100-400 IS USM by to replace my current 75-300mm USM. But patience, gotta finish my studies first
It's not about AIRBUS. it's not about BOEING. It's all about the beauty of FLYING.

I currently own a Canon EF-S 17-85, a 70-200 f/4L, and a 50mm f/1.4. What I'd like to do is replace the 17-85 with a 24-105 and a 10-22, but as you can imagine, those 2 are *expensive*. And I'd love a 100-400 for aviation photography, but it's not exactly cheap either. Therefore I'll keep dreaming for the moment.
