Agreed! I would look at the 60mm or 100mm if I were you. The 60mm is pretty cheap, and is an amazing lens!

Re: Full Frame Herp Lens?

How much are you looking to spend? I shoot the 100mm L on a 6d, and in my opinion, it is by far the best lens for most herp shots. If you're looking for a herp in habitat lens, the 16-35mm L is probably the best, unless you're looking to dump a bunch of money on the 14mm L. The 17-40mm L is quite a ...

Re: Herp Lens

You could probably pick up a 17-40mm L and a 100mm non L for the same price as a 24-105mm. Gives you a wider angle for landscapes, and also a solid macro lens for herp photography. I shot the 24-105 all last year, but I ended up selling it in favor of the 100mm L over the winter. Don't regret it one...
