...hello everyone, im thinking of getting this lens to somewhat fill the gap between 35-70 range ! my choices are between this lens, 85, or 24-70, but im leaning more towards the two primes.
which would you recommend?
Personally, i would go for two primes, i dont think it's for everyone though, but i love working with primes. I am a hobbyist and normally have the time to enjoy my shooting and moving about to get the shot i want with primes. I use what you see in my sig, the 17-40 getting less and less use(the 24mm is mostly wide enough), the 50L being my favorite.
I would love to add the 35mm and 85mm to my lineup, but i feel i'm covered for now.
The 50L and 85L sounds wonderful if you can afford it, it's very rewarding when you look through your shots afterwards. The 50L isnt a sharpness king, but you can get them sharp enough at 1.2, if you hit it right, it takes practice. But it's mostly about the rendering of things out of focus and the dreamy feel it creates.
The 85mmL is very sharp at 1.2 they say, i havent tried it. But i love the combo of 24mm, 50mm and 100mm, but i use a 60D.
