Been looking at the options on B and H and I'm really leaning towards the Canon 35 f/2 - http://www.bhphotovideo.com …2_Wide_Angle_EF_35mm.html
Someone had mentioned 50 being too tight indoors and I started thinking back to most of my indoor shots and looking through them and i'm not at 50 all that often. I really think 35 is the way to go.
I'm planning on going through a good amount of my pics and writing down all the focal lengths of the shot and avg. them out to see where I'm at.
I think this yr get a prime and next yr get the 2.8 variable zoom. The Canon 35 f/2 right now is $309 which means i really don't have to shell out any of my own cash, which will be nice. Also kinda want the new xbox one hehe and this makes it easier to tell the wife when both show up at the door lol.
We are gonna be with some friends coming up for a family party and they have a new born. I plan on taking my 18-55 and putting it at 35 and 50 and leave it there and take a bunch of shots to try and get a feel for those to focal lengths. I'm hoping that will give me a better idea too of what i might like for a prime.
Thanks for all the input, i'll keep you updated as to what i finally decide on getting. Like most of you i've been spending hours looking this stuff up.
