I admit I miss some of the functionality of my 80D when using the 5D but as I intend to use the 5D primarily for landscape work I'm sure it won't be a major issue.
Bit the bullet and ordered a Canon 24-105mm L (not the mark 2 mind!). Managed to find it brand new from HDEW slightly cheaper than a mint used lens from Camera Jungle!!

It's a White box item so obviously from a kit where someone wanted the body only. I recall LCE sold my wife a Panasonic G7 body that was part of a kit, so I guess it's not unusual.

Anyway, hope the 24-105mm is as good as they say as I doubt 'er indoors will sanction any more spend this year - unless it's on her of course 😊
