- Canon Normal EF 50mm f/1.4 USM Autofocus Lens -$25 ($344.95)
If you can't afford the f/1.2, this 50mm f/1.4 is a pretty good lens! Whether you have a full frame 5D or a smaller sensor 7D or T2i, a 50mm lens is a useful one to have.
- Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM Lens -$65 ($884.00)
What sets this lens apart is the Macro mode, and stabilization. And, it's a 2.8mm L lens for under $1,000!
- Canon Zoom Super Wide Angle EF 16-35mm f/2.8L II USM Autofocus Lens -$100 ($1,420.00)
I have this lens and really like it a lot; if you like the wide-angle end of things it's a great lens.
- Canon EF 85mm f/1.2L II USM Autofocus Lens -$130 ($1,869.00)
If I had a 5D I'd probably be saving for this...but since I have a 7D I'm saving for the 50mm f/1.2 instead!
- Canon Fisheye EF 15mm f/2.8 Autofocus Lens -$45.00 ($634.00)
I like fisheye lenses; just not sure I can justify spending that much on a lens with only limited usefulness.
[UPDATED 5/18]: I missed the fact that the Canon Zoom Wide Angle-Telephoto EF 24-70mm f/2.8L USM Autofocus Lens is $90 off, bringing it to $1,308; less than the grey market version B & H is selling for $1,329!
This is one of the most popular general purpose zoom lenses, so worth consideration, but WARNING! there have been rumors for about the last four months of an IS version of this lens appearing. Who knows if it's true - or when it might happen - and it will undoubtedly be more expensive, but I thought you should know...
