Yeah, anything longer than 200mm and you're looking at pretty specialist photography, in most cases. The 70-200mm is highly regarded in terms of it's optics though, which is why I wouldn't mind one. I keep looking out for cheap-ish second hand ones here and there.
I wouldn't mind a 24-105 either, damn it
the 24-105 was the kit lens with the 5D Not a bad kit lens!
Yea, the optics on the 70-200 are stunning, for portrait photos it gives a really soft touch, especially in lower lights and higher ISO. You get it out in bright light and you crank up the aperture and you can get some really crisp photos that brings everything into focus. I love it, even with out the IS. I tend to use it in broad daylight and have never had the need for IS to compensate for the somewhat high f-stop.
