new toys... i mean, uh, tools!

During our travels we lost two 77mm lens caps. One is somewhere in the Australian outback, and the other is in Beijing China. I know exactly where it is (on a friends coffee table) but it would probably cost more to send it back than to buy a new one.

Our 16-35mm lens is un-useable, and Canon's estimate to fix it was almost as much as buying a brand new one. So we plunkered down the cash and bought the version 2 of this lens. It's supposed to be a huge improvement on sharpness.
Also bought the 50mm f/1.4. This lens will be great for low light portraits when we don't need so much focal length as our 85mm f1.2. It's also so small and light, so that is a bonus.

the 50mm 1.4 is my all around lense. I absolutely love it.

I thought you didn't shoot with uv filters on your lenses?
