I have two at the moment:
EF 85mm f/1.8 USM (external link)
EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro USM (external link)

I'm considering the EF 35mm f/1.4L (external link) as my next lens.


40D, 17-55/2.8 IS, 85/1.8, 100/2.8 Macro USM, 100-400L, 580EX II

Four - 24mm 2.8, 50mm 1.4, 85mm 1.8, and a 100mm 2.8 non-L.

... how many primes do you have or want to have?

ZERO ;) My zooms are razor sharp, so no primes yet. I do ultimately want a couple of speedy primes though.

I got 2. Yay!

I got a chance to use a 35L and an 85 1.8 though, both are fantastic lenses. Now if I could afford it...

2 primes, 0 zooms. More then enough for hobby

If they're they right primes for you then pretty much enough for a pro too. ;)

I have exactly 1 prime.... the 50mm f1.8 II.

That's enough for me. I like zooms.

I have 3: The Sigma 30mm 1.4, the Sigma 50mm 1.4, and the Canon 85mm 1.8. I do lots of shooting in low light, mostly with the 50mm, switching to the others if necessary.

None! Unless you count an FD-mount 100mm macro, for which the FD-to-EOS adapter eliminates the infinity focus, making it only usable for macro.

Three - Zeiss 21/35/100 - just sold my last zoom (24-105). Prime only from here on.

sigh... I may have another prime in the mail... that makes 6 primes to 6 zooms... in the past month the primes have grown from 3 to 6! The zooms are in fear!

What prime is it? I'll keep that a secret until it gets here ;)

Dusty, I know what you mean. The 50mm 1.8 Nifty Fifty didn't quite do it. Love the lens and use it often, but it was just another tool.

Then, for some reason, I started looking at the 85mm 1.8. I've had it less than one week now and it's already THE tool. For me, anyway, it's the perfect walkaround lens for everything except small indoor rooms (not a common situation for me in any case).

It's completely pushed me over to primes (the Nifty Fifty only nudged me). I'll keep the zooms, though I can only imagine using them rarely, from now on.
