Thanks for clarifying that for me Jess.

I'm wanting to set my goals on lenses for the future.  I have a 40D and am 
thinking of getting the new 5D MkII (FF) and 
will keep the 40D as well.  I also have an older 20D and two cheapo kit lenses. 
 I need to get rid of them someday.

Other than some 'kit' lenses (with IS), I have the 100mm f2.8 Macro and a EF-S 
10-22mm 3.5-4.5 USM wide angle lens. (the 
latter won't work with the 5D MkII)

You do such beautiful work, I was ready to go out and buy all f2.8 L IS lenses 
(which I simply cannot afford).  But I 
can see that F4 will work nicely although I'm still tempted to get the 70-200mm 
at f2.8 and perhaps one in a lower zoom 
range.

I hope you're feeling better...stay well and shoot like h....

Terry
