If I edited every picture i ever took, i'd definitly shoot raw.

which 2.8 lens are you looking at? I have the 16-35mm 2.8 and the 24-70mm 2.8, both are very sharp. Still learning my way around the 16-35, but so far i'm happy, and the 24-70 is on my one camera about 90% of the time. and i've never second guessed it.

Canon is supposed to be coming out with a new version of the 24-70 sometime soon, i don't know if it will retain the 2.8 status, but it will get image stabilization, and will definitely be something I'll consider, though it will be hard to replace my current one knowing how sharp it is already.
I was just talking to JZhang about this very subject this past weekend
Considering the following: Canon EF-S 17–55mm f/2.8 IS USM or Canon EF 70-200mm f2.8 IS USM probably Version I because I do not think I will notice a major difference with II and price of course.....I am still a novice photographer but I think getting some better glass will help (it will make me feel better at a bare minimum). Since you have a bit more experience than me what is your opinion?
