The closes your going to find is the EF-S 10-22 and even then it doesn't have the speed you want. I still want to try it out though, it sounds like an interesting lens.

What's a good prime for environmental portraits on a crop? I haven't been able to decide - 14L or 24L... or just get a zoom (11-16 or 16-35)


Taking photos with a fancy camera does not make me a photographer.

The wide end is one of the main reason to go full frame. I do hear the 24L is outstanding.

Sigma 30, Sigma 50, Canon 85 closest thing I can find to the holy trinity. Wish there was a great mid priced 24mm prime that was around 1.4.

I hear too many people say 50mm is a funny focal length on a crop? any opinion on that?

I wouldn't take comments like those too seriously since we are all different and have different styles and different needs and wants.

It comes down to where you are located in relation to you're subject and the type of composition you want that should dictate the focal length you use.

IMO

Yeah, I've never understood this. If 50 is 'funny' on a crop why is 85 ok on FF?

I've been thinking of the Sigma 20mm for my 50D - it'd have something approaching the classic FOV of a 35mm on FF, and has a good fast aperture. Anyone tried this?

I really like my EF 50mm f/1.4 on my 20D and 50D.. Great for street candids when the light levels drop..

i wish someone would make an aps-c 15mm f1.8 lens... (24mm FF equiv), thats the one thing i hated about crop - lack of wide primes.

I was so disapointed that sigma didnt annouced something like that at the photokina.

Well the 30mm is on its way. If I decide to try a 50 1.8 for a while and like it i'll get the sigma 50 1.4. But I doubt it. I think my next prime (so long as I like shooting with a prime) will be the 85 1.8

The 30 f/1.4 is by far my favorite and most used lens. I personally LOVE it.

OP: I'd say go with the Sigma 30mm f/1.4 and the Canon 85mm f/1.8. I have the nifty fifty and think I might replace it with the 85.

I am the OP :)

Yeah I ordered teh Sig 30mm. I'm going to save some more now for the 85 1.8. and then either an ultrawide zoom or a 200L

Alright, I have had the 50mm f1.4 for 3 days now and I can say it is way better than the 85mm f1.8 for portraits on a crop camera. I'm already happier with 30mm f1.4 and 50mm f1.4 than I was with 30/85. 85mm is a great optic, but just too long unless you get outside in an open area. Personally I feel like the 50mm is sharper, too.

I may end up getting the 100mm f2 as an outdoor prime and indoor sports/dance lens. F2.8 on my 50-135mm really pushes the ISO for indoor action.

I promise guys, last thread on leses. I'm just trying to get all the input I can and see what other photographers are doing.

Long story short, I had a T1i, 24-70 2.8L and 70-200 2.8 L. I love fast lenses. Sold the stuff to pay bills and now I'm getting back into photography.


I bought a beautiful 40D with EF-D Focus Screen, less than 5k on the shutter.

Primes are more in my price range, they are fast, and sharp.

What primes do crop users love the most?

EVENTUALLY I want to end up with a 135L and 200L on the long end. But on the low/portrait end im stuck. I need two lenses for about 600-700 bucks. Between 24-100mm. What do you guys use????
