Forum Thread: Lens recommendations for my 7D

I just purchased a 7D for the purpose of shooting both stills and video. I wanted to have lenses that would cover almost everything I need for both of those objectives. I have picked up a Canon 70-200mm 2.8 IS II, a Tokina 11-16mm and a Zeiss 50mm 1.4. Will that be sufficient or am I really missing out with the 17-69mm (minus the 50mm) zoom ranges? I've already spent so much money on all this. One thing I'm thinking I'm missing is a good macro lens because I do like to occassionally go to gardens and take some photographs. Any recommendations?

You could always try extention tubes as a low cost way to get started before jumping into additional lenses?

I have the 70-200 2.8 lens plus the 24-105 F4 and a 50mm 1.4, but am also thinking about macro at present.
