Hey guys, I'd really appreciate some opinions on what I should do in my specific situation.
I currently own a t3i, Canon 85 1.8, and Canon 50 1.4.
I'm looking at the Canon 70-200L 2.8 non-IS (it's in my price range used), but I often find myself in need of a wider angle than 70mm (I had this problem a lot when the only lens I had was my 85), especially since I'm on a crop. I'll need to sell my 85 to afford the 70-200. I would also have to sell my 50 to be able to afford to get a wider lens to go along with the 70-200, but that is an option.
I'm afraid I'm going to miss the bokeh and dof that a smaller aperture gives...but I figure I could get a 50 1.8 later if I really feel like I need one.
I primarily shoot portraiture (models, fashion, senior shoots, family, pretty much everything), if that helps in forming your opinion.
I guess my questions are: Do you think you would be happy with the range for portraiture? Do you think that is a good lens choice to upgrade to (if no, what do you recommend?)? What affordable wider angled lens would pair well with the 70-200?
I realize that my questions are based greatly on personal choice, but that's what I'm looking for...opinions.
My price limit it 1k, and I'm looking to buy used.
Thanks for your time!
