Mhm. Horses for courses. My boss is a wedding photographer and has; 24 1.4 35 1.4 50 1.2 85 1.2 100mm Macro 135 f2 16-35 f2.8 24-70 70-200 f2.8 IS Do I wish I had his 5D mkII? No. Not when he's calling out to his video guy, 'i can't focus without your video light here, light me!'. Other than that, yeah, the canon lens lineup is a big plus and I sure wouldn't mind the 135 f2. With the Iso the D700 puts out, I can't say I'd actually buy an 85 1.2 even if I did have the money for it, not with the speed at which that thing af's. Availability? Funny that, I didn't have any problems getting my 24-70. I didn't go to a brick and mortar, so maybe that's why. I use grays of westminster and amazon UK. Price differences, bah. If you've got money to spend on a 14-24, 24-70, 70-200, D700, then what's a few hundred quid here and there I was obviously mentioning lenses that I felt were worth mentioning with regard to what I'd be interested in. The t/s lenses, 50 1.2, 70-200 F4, aren't lenses I'd be interested in personally. A 14-24 F4 on the other hand. Yes please.
