Traveling: 100-400 on 7D, ready for wildlife and 17-50 Tamron on 30D. When I'm home, 17-50 on 7D and usually 12-24 Tokina on 30D.

Not necessarily. Light dappled by clouds gives you more creative opportunities than a stupidly brightly lit cloudless sky. It still depends on the look you're going for, what you are shooting.

u cannot stop 'up' beyond max aperture.

Right now it is the 35, because it is so lightweight. If I had them, I think I would also like the 40 or 50 for everyday use. The other lenses are kind of heavy. I think maybe I should sell them, but then it is too hard to let them go.

do you mean "go wider"? of course not. but you can't stop down beyond min aperture either, and it's quite against your interests to do so. I'm afraid I don't see your point.

and tell me that the cat by the window picture would look nicer if it had been taken in a dentist office. Then I'll agree with you that "more light is always better."

Lately, the Zeiss 50 f/1.4 or the Canon 135mm f/2. I'm . . . studious . . . if that is the right word, about the right lens for a shot. Lately I've been forcing myself to shoot at length with just one lens, to really get to know each of my babies better. The 135mm is such a gorgeous piece of work. It's almost hard to get a bad shot.

i was referring the to ability to capture more light with a faster lens if/when needed.

My 70-200 mkII is whats usually on my 5D3, but thats because of the configuration of my bag, i need to have the 70-200 on to fit all my gear. Of late my 100mm macro and 135 f/2 have been abandoned.

30 1.4 Sigma is my current best friend, and has been for the past year. It makes for a lightweight setup combined with the 60D.....


I live on a bicycle, sleep in a tent, eat pasta and work in the oil and gas industry, and shoot photography because I'm bad at it.
