Looking for some advice:
My long search has ended with getting an 5D in perfect condition. After having some compacts, crops - i think im finally "there".
Right now i'm looking for some nice set of lenses. I won't need any >150mm. Here are my thoughts:
1) 17-40L + 50 1.4 + 100 2.8 USM Macro (non IS)
2) 28-75 Tamron + 50 1.4 + 100 2.8 Macro IS
My plans: I like making portraits and it is getting more important. I've had an 85 1.8 for a couple of days - nice lens & nice quality - but I hate the min. focus distance. Basically I thought taking an Macro 100 (the IS or non IS?) is a could compromise. Good for portrait - good for technical shots (maybe sometimes for flowers,bees and so on).
The 50 1.4 is set - I love it. So portraits. Furthermore i'd like to take my cam on trips & vacation - question is: do I really need an UWA? I'd use it only sporadic.. 28-75 as a compromise?
Can you give me some advice? How did you solve the "problem"? Change 100 Macro for 135 2.0? Take the non IS macro and safe some money for other lenses?
Puh long post.
