What would have happened, if i hadn't mentioned about your 135L usage the other day.....
Ahhhhhh...hahahahah! No doubt! Your post made me get the 135 back out after a long winter's rest. This lens takes some practice and I out of practice! Every so often I start thinking about moving it for a zoom. So I thought I would ask POTN about it this time. I think I will be sticking with it. When you get in the zone with it it really is...well...magical.
THanks very much for you thoughts kin2son. You kind of confirm my suspicions. I think I am just to used to the rendering I get from my primes. I think I would be a bit let down with the f/4 IS zoom.
Maybe when I get rich I'll buy all the lenses that I would like to have. This way I will have what I want, when I want it. BUT, you have to have the time to use/learn them. This is why I have always kept my kit simple. I don't know how people (that have normal day gigs) with 5-10 lenses can possibly become proficient with them all.
