Hey guys is just me and my fantasies or did I read this some where. I could have sworn i remember seeing some sort of collectors kit from somewhere in europe that had the 35 1.4, 50 1.2, and 85 1.2 all in one nice box set.

I am actually in the market for this as I am completely turning to the light side and selling off my nikon gear to shoot solely canon.

please help or just call me crazy.

From what I remember it was a wicked deal to get all 3 so thats why im asking

thanks

:rolleyes: .. For full frame, I choose 24L + 85L +135L +300L2.8 .... Actually, I am working to replace 135L by 200L2.0 ....and this will be my ultimate kit ..
So, I feel 35L+50L+85L is rather narrow range :confused:, there is a few steps between lenses.
When you go to only primes, a second body becomes a real comfort (a FF and a APSC), so it's probably better to enlarge the lengh range :rolleyes: intermediate lengh can be made by mixing FF and APSC.

I guess the holy trinity gives you some room for your own interpretation..

35 / 50 / 85
35 / 85 / 135
24 / 50 / 85

... and so on..

For me (unlike newworld 66) >135 is just to long. Although you have to consider I'm only into portraits.. the 135L is a great lens (sharp etc blabla) but to tight for me on the FL..

Why not buy it separately?
You can choose your preferred FL yourself.
Ex. : The Holy Trinity: 35L, 85L, 135L
All Arounder: 24L II, 50L, 100L


X-Pro1 + 18-55 f/2.8-4 OIS + 55-200 f/3.8-4.5 OIS
TS-E 24 f/3.5L II + XF 35 f/1.4 + XF 56 f/1.2
Sony RX100 II + G12

hi guys thanks for the responses but its still not what im looking for. I have a couple lenses for my 5dII already that cover my spectrum as a wedding and physique photographer (plug) www.pinkelephantphotog​raphy.com (external link) I have a 24-70 2.8, 70-200 2.8 is II, 16-35 2.8, and 85 1.8. My nikon kit is the one with the more creative primes that i am looking to replace.

From what I can remember all come in one nice collectors box. It was a European country for sure though but saw it on some where.

thanks

I believe you were thinking the nikon f/1.4 N set

http://nikonrumors.com …ition-f1-4-lens-set.aspx/ (external link)

it was the 24/35/85 set...

Canon's famed Trinity is the 35 f/1.4L, 85 f/1.2L and the 135 f/2L

Zeiss' older (Contax/Rollei) Trinity I would say is 21 f/2.8, 35 f/1.4 and the 85 f/1.4

Uhhhhh. Fancy. I'd switch to Nikon just to get that.


I'm in Canada. Isn't that weird!

i feel like 50 is a useless FL. 21/35/70-200 is where i'm at and i think it's like godsend.

nifty sits in my bag just because i feel bad for the lil guy


5Dmkii ~ Zeiss 21mm f/2.8 ~ Canon 35L
