I'm pretty well stocked on lenses but I'll start the bidding at $10.00.

I'm gonna hold you to "or best offer".
; )

When's the bidding end?

Well, I could use a better wide angle lens, so I'll double that $10 to $20.

How's that 24-105 working out for you? After tonight, I'll be 40% of my way to owning one. So, by April 1st, I should have one in my possession.

Jim I like it alot, id say 96% of my photos on RP have been taken by the 24-105L. It may not be the widest but I still like it.

Well, I have my 17-40 to make up on the wider end. I have it on Craigs List right now for sale, but I think I might keep it.

Jim I would probably keep it for now, the 17-40, 24-105, 100-400 would be a great combo.

Jim, I love my 24-105, it's the best lens I've ever used. However, keep the 17-40 because sometimes, the 24 just isn't wide enough. The Canon 10-22 is number 1 on my lens wish list to cover the wide end of the spectrum.

The 10-22 is awesome Chris, although I do wish I used it more.

Ok, you guys talked me into keeping it. My plan was to sell it and use that money toward the 24-105. I don't think I need to now. I've pretty much shut down all my spending so I can save the money instead.

Woot! Three more weeks of saving and I'll have it!
