Hi guys,

just joined your mailing list :)
I need some suggestions about some "upgrade".
I'll be in the States in 2 weeks and I'm thinking to buy something
there, for europeans it's very cheap now :)

I'm using a canon 350D + canon: 17-40L f/4, 70/200L f/4, 50 f/1.8 and
a couple of external flash (canon + metz)

Something I'm thinking about:

Canon 40D (or maybe 30D?)
Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L II USM (i would sell my 17-40)
Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L USM
Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM (i would sell mine f/4)
not sure about Canon EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM

what do you suggest with a $2000 budget?
I've an idea but I'd like to know some our opinions about it.


I may be misinterpreting your message, but it looks like you're
interested in about $5,500 worth of equipment, can sell what you have
for maybe $1,500, and have a $2,000 budget. Is that right? Are you only
considering some of the lenses?

I'm considering all those lenses.. but i cannot afford all of them
now :)
maybe taking the 40D + 24-70 2.8 could be OK.
In the future all the others :)
what do you could prioritize?
