Hi all, I'm looking at changing my bag a little and wandered what peoples views of primes vs zooms was.
Ive mostly been a landscape man up to now and have 16-35mm 2.8 L paired with my 5D mk2. I find this combo works well for me. I'm however getting much more in to portrait work and paid commercial photography these days. So my 28-135 IS I have is a bit on the slow side, can be a little soft and not great in low light, so its time to upgrade it.
So I already have a 50mm 1.8 prime which even though a little noisy and slow to focus on occasion I do really enjoy using it and its nice light and sharp... and really what more can you ask of a £70 lens!
So.... do I continue down the prime route and go for an EF 80mm 1.8 and an EF 100mm 2.8, this with the fast 16-35L I have should probably cover most things id need. Id just use my feet to zoom in and out. I also think primes make you think more about the shot and help you learn... or do I go for the convenience / laziness of say a 24-104mm f4 L IS??
Any input greatly received!
