If you could chose 2 of the above lenses for outside model photography, which 2 would you prefer (and why not the other 2) ?
They are all great, but using all 4 of them would not be so practical maybe :-D


Sony A7 III | Metabones V | Canon 16-35 F4 L | 70-200 2.8L II
Sigma 50 1.4 Art | Sigma 85 1.4 Art

Lighting : Godox AD600B TTL + Godox V860II-S + X1T-S
Modifiers: 60cm Collapsible Silver Beautydish + grid | Godox 120cm Octagon softbox + grid + Speedlite Flash bender
Tripod: Vanguard Alta 253CT carbon

I'll choose 35L and 70-200 f2.8L II.

35L - for environmental portraits and show depth of field.
70-200 - for versatility and good bokeh when doing tight shots and awesome sharpness. :)

Ive never used a 135L so i couldnt comment on that but ive seen loads of portraits here that are wonderfully made with that lens. 24-70 is an awesome lens but ill choose 35L over it just because of large aperture for artistic portraits.

Same as above poster. I think the 70-200mm covers the telephoto range nicely and especially it being the v2 its pretty damn sharp. Having the versatility of zoom outweighs the 135L in my opinion.

24-70 and 135L. With wide angle shots, you can't zoom with your feet (may be for the subject, but not for the background), so a zoom lens is preferable. With telephoto, zooming with your feet works fine, and nothing beats the magic of 135L!

It seems like the 35 and the 70-200 win, now which 2 models would you prefer to photograph with those two lenses?


6D/ 24-105 f4 IS/ 85 f1.8/ 70-300L IS

135 f/2 and the 85 f/1.8 Both are sharper and more crisp than any Canon zoom.
