Heya,

My go-to focal length for this kind of stuff in general, is an 85mm. I've done it with 35mm, 50mm, 85mm, 100mm, 200mm, etc. You name it. Ultimately I like 85mm (on full frame). On our APS-C's, I generally put a 50mm on there because it has a similar field of view on the APS-C.

50mm on 70D would be what I would do. I recently picked up a 50mm F1.8 STM for nothing basically and put it on my wife's camera. She can get close and still do full body shots and it keeps up with a running toddler no problem.

So really I would look at:

Canon 50 F1.2L
Canon 50 F1.8 STM
Sigma 50 F1.4 (non-ART)
Sigma 50 F1.4 (ART)
Tamron 45 F1.8 VC

Very best,

I like the Canon 35F2IS indoors and out on crop. The 85F1.8 works well outside. I have gotten good results from the Canon 50F1.4, especially outside, but it isn't a lens that I reach for very often.

Thanks so much for your response and your lovely pictures.

Between all of the lenses you mentioned which one do you find the most accurate, fastest with kids and just all around a great lens?

85 1.8 but you will need a lot of room to work with it on a crop.

Of the lenses listed in you signature I'd go with the 24-70 = to 38-112 which is a good range and will allow you a certain amount of composing.

Depends on how you like your photos framed and the size of the room/yard. I would get a 24 2.8 STM pancake and a 50 1.8 stm. The 50 may be too narrow for some rooms, unless you are ok with all of them being tight crops. At some point, you are going to want to see the scene that your kid was in. The 24 would be great for getting more of the scene in the photo with your toddler.

as second poster suggested, 50mm on a crop (I also like a 30mm) and around 85 on a FF. Still it is a personal preference but it gives you an idea

I do 50mm indoors on ff and crop. Works well for most shots.
