Nice lenses, but this is not the Holy Trinity. You're close, but no cigar. Any chance you can swap out the 24mm for a 35mm to do it right?

I think it really does not matter. The "Holy Trinity" is a made up things to begin with.

I just feel that the term 'Holy Trinity' gets tossed around too much, watering down its meaning. There is only one Holy Trinity.

All other trinities are considered Unholy Trinities. Of the Unholy Trinities, there are several types:

Basterd Trinity - 24 / 50 / 100
Ghetto Trinity - 35 2.0 / 85 1.8 / 135
This does not deserve to be called a Trinity Trinity - 18-55 / 55-250 / 50 1.8
No cigar Trinity - has 2 of 3 of the Holy Trinity, but missing the last piece of the puzzle

LOL. I think you're reading too much into it. It's only a name someone made up a long time ago. All 3 lenses that the OP has are excellent. That's all that matters.

I have the 24mmL on my wishlist, so i would end up with a Basterd trinity? Who comes up with this crap, shooting style is different, so are lens choices.:D
