Are you getting rid of your current 50? If not than the choice is obvious.

I find it curious that you'd want to go with a 30mm if your primary interest is portrait.

Yeah, I'll be selling it to help fund the new lens.

You can do what I did and get the Sigma Trinity. Then you could take portraits with each focal length!

^ that's beautiful. I just got rid of my canon 50 1.4 to get the sigma and I'm stoked. The sigma 50 1.4 is really nice compared to the canon 50 (build quality)

Now I need to decide on a 30.

Well not really.. ;)

Just sometimes the 50 is actually a hair too long..lmao...But i love my 50 to death and feel getting the 30 might mean it stays home more

I love the 30mm it's probably one of my most used lenses. In fact I often choose it over the 24-75 tamaron. I use it for pictures of my kids all the time.

Went the same way with a Canon 135f2 to top my primes off. My 30f1.4 is the old finish though.

What do you think took this picture? My 135L is an awesome addition to this line. I also topped off my set with a 400L/5.6.
