Affordable Full Frame Camera
I wanted a full frame camera that used SD cards. The Cannon 6D mark 1 is a great body. I love everything but the autofocus.
Best Affordable Telephoto
I wanted a telephoto lens that was lightweight (F2.8 is a beast) with IS. The Canon 70-200 is a great lens
Great "Normal" Zoom
This replaced my broken 24-105 F4L. Love the macro function of this lens along with the super useful zoom range.
Wide Angle Zoom
I had the 14mm F2.8L and loved it on my crop body camera, but when I switched to the full frame it was hard to keep my toes out of the shot. So I sold it to pay for part of the Canon 6D body and this 17-40 F4L.
Heavy Duty Light Stand
What can I say. It's heavy, but it holds 88Lbs!
