Most of the time its a 24-70 f/2.8 but recently I've been using the 70-200 f/2.8 more too. The first one is a lot less weight.

I love the fast 70-200 2.8 also. But for a walk around the 70-200 f4 works better because of the weight. For a walk around I don't realy find myself needing faster than f4 most of the time. But that's just me. Guess it maters where your walking to.

Mark,
that's interesting--you are the first user/owner of a 1Ds/1Ds MkII that I found confessing to use one of the above mentioned lenses on FF-digital bodies.
What are your overall quality impressions? Do you use them wide open? If so, what about corner sharpness?

Michael

500 f4 and usually with a 1.4X attached.

Before I got this lens, it was the 400 f5.6.

I do use my 17-40 when I am in landscape mode,* but the long lens is usually on the camera.

The 500 is one of my favorite all-time lenses I've ever shot with.
