I have the Sigma 30 and Canon 85 1.8... I would love to get a 50 into my prime mix but I think the 50 might be redundant. Does it make sense to get the 50?


I have a 7D and I shoot everything from Sports photography to weddings.

I think I am getting prime fever *L*

you already have a 30 so a 35L is just more money. unless you cant live without the wide angle L. i think you should look at the 135. a 50 is great and redundant focal length for you BUT it does give different feel to the photos everything from that slight perspective change to the bokeh so its a grea tlens to have but if you just do not need that length itself and arent attached to the photos it produces i say get a 135 for more reach OR if you want to go wider its going to cost more money but a 14L :P

I would not call a 50 redundant at all with the 30 and 85. The difference of angle of view between 30 and 85 is significant. A 50 sits almost perfectly between them.

I have a 28, a 50 and an 85 and they are all used equally. It is a nice range of primes.

i had a 50mm 1.4 and i miss it. i redid my line up to just be 35L+85. I miss the 50, so i may be getting a sigma. Personally, im not sure if i'll actually use it since i love my 35L more than any other lens i've ever used. but thats my preference.

I have a 24L II, 50L, and 85L II, I feel all three are significantly different to justify owning all three.

I use my 50L the most, followed by the 24L II and rounded up with the 85L II. I haven't touched my zooms for a while...

I'd say go ahead and purchase the 50, it's not as redundant as it looks on paper.
