"Declaring the glory of God
through photography of His created world"

I currently am using the Canon 1D MK II N as my main body with the Canon Rebel XTI as secondary
The Canon 100-400 F/4.5-5.6 is my workhorse lens
The Canon 70-200 f/2.8 IS This is the sharpest lens I own and is terrific for low light indoor telephoto work
Canon 24-70 F/2.8
Despite it's rave reviews this has been the lens that I am least enamored with. Not that it has any bad flaws just not as outstanding as I had hoped.
Sigma 50-500mm "Bigma"
I very much like this lens and think it represents a bargain tool for the serious photographer. You can read my short review here.
Sigma 12-24mm f/4.5-5.6 DG HSM
Don't be fooled this lens is a great performer for it's extreme wide angle ratings. Very low distortion (lower than the older canon 20-35mm 2.8) Sharpness is fair however the usfulness of this lens is outstanding.
Excellent for use with the 1d MKII

This older canon lens has become one of my most used lenses. It has a great range with pretty reasonable close focusing distance allowing some nice macro shots.

Update! I now have replaced the 35-305 with the Canon 28-300 IS L
Tamron AF18-200mm F/3.5-6.3 XR Di II
This is a very handy little walk around lens built for the APS C sensors like the Canon Rebel XT or XTI. I use it exclusively on an XTI body for a small SLR camera package that is ready for just about any photographic opportunity.
Tamron AF28-300mm F/3.5-6.3 XR Di I use this lens for the same purpose as above but it does not have the wide end but more zoom on the top.
Canon EF 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6L IS USM
Yes this is an expensive but I find it well worth it. It has image stabilization and a outstandingly useful range. It resides on my 1D MK II N most of the time because I find that I have most of the range I need for widely varying subject mater.
Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro USM
Resonably priced macro lens with near "L" quality in the image.
Canon EF 85mm f/1.8 USM
This is a great low light indoor lens with a medium focal length.
