I used to have the Sig 30, Can 50, Can 85 trio. I ended up selling the nifty with an old body as I never used it.

I don't find my self missing that focal length at all.

Is this kinda redundant on my end? I already have the 30mm 1.4 and Sigmalux, and ordered the 85 1.4.....

I just somehow cannot bare to part with my primes! I plan to do a lot of filming soon as my buddy is a dancer in the streets..maybe it's worth to keep all three?

You are just being smart with your money.

You aren't shooting sports and weather sealing isn't needed.

I applaud you on not biting the L bullet just because it makes you feel cool.

All top-shelf lenses. But you need to decide if the focal lengths work out for you or not. I sell what I don't use. Others hoard :lol:

Personally, on APS-C, I like the 30mm and 85mm lens coverage the best. But YMMV.

Yep, sell what you don't use. Spend the money toward higher quality lenses at the focal lengths that you do use.

At least thats my line of thinking. I am going to try to master 3 maybe 4 focal lengths.

Nothing wrong with going toward Sigma. I started out buying canon lenses only, but I've slowly been adding sigma lenses, and deciding I'm better off with the savings.

I'd keep them all if you are fortunate enough to be able to. They are all great lenses..! Doesn't get too much better unless you go w/L primes, which is considerably more.

Surely the trinity is a crop body portraiture classic set....

Factoring in the crop adjustments it comes out near as damn it 50-85-135.

I'd keep them all and am in fact looking at the 30 as my next buy to get the equivalent of the fast 50 for my camera for that very reason.
