That is a very strange first prime lens. Was there a reason you went with one of them?

(Mine was a 50mm f/1.4 FD lens, Folllowed after much saving by the 200mm f/2.8 and then after very very much saving and great personal sacrifice, the 85mm f/1.2L FD lens.)

I chose it has my first prime lens because I really love photographing wildlife and as disappointed with the quality of the super telephoto zooms such as the 50-500mm when I looked at them. I think that it was the right choice and I really enjoyed the lens for the length of time that I had it :) (My next prime after the 500mm was the 300mm ƒ/2.8 IS)


Apparently I've been dubbed Foxy.

My first prime was the Canon 50mm f1.8 II

Yep...

Then oddly, my second prime was the SIGMA 500mm f/4.5 EX HSM ;) :lol:

Canon 300mm f/4 L IS here. Then I got the 100mm f/2.8 macro. Standard primes haven't really grabbed my attention yet. But the two I have definitely have me hooked!
