I'm looking for some feedback on what lenses I should consider as I look toward a coming release of the 1Ds MkIII.
I had been shooting with a Canon 20D until recently when I sold it and the EF-S lenses with it in anticipation of the 1Ds MkIII coming out this spring. Of course, it didn't appear and left me digital camera deprived (I am still using my trusty Pentax 67 for landscape work and scanning- still a great option! and my Panasonic LX-2 for hiking and snaps). I have pretty much decided that I can't go on any longer without a decent DSLR so I am strongly leaning toward buying a Rebel XTi that I can use until the big Canon appears, and then use it as a backup camera after that.
The question is, what do do about lenses. I already have a EF 70-200 f4L (non IS). The difficulty is that I am making the assumption that when Canon releases the 1Ds MkIII, they will also release a few upgraded or new lenses that can resolve the 22MP(?) that this camera will pack. Right now, I am looking at the EF 24-105 and the EF 16-35 II as possible lenses to aquire now, but am wondering if even these lenses will be up to the task when the big Canon appears. The question is, should I go for them now, or do without and wait. Help me decide!
