I do a lot of low light church photography: First communion, Confirmation, and I was shooting a lot at 3200 and 6400, usually 1/125 (so vibration control was never a plus). So yes I need 1.4 glass; I'll just inch closer and shoot a little wider.

A manual focus lens would be perfectly fine; I usually set these up on a tripod and stop down.......... so it doesn't have to be fast. Really this is the only time I forsee needing this lens. The rest of the time I'll stick to my new 35 ART, 85 1.8 Canon, and my 135L. When finances permit I believe I'll move up to an 85 ART.

Thanks for the thoughts. Others?

So you need 1.4 yet you are looking into a vintage 24/2.8 for this? I would think the 24-35/2 Dre suggested would be a better option.

I need 1.4 for most of my work in the church as no flash is allowed. 2.0 would be marginal. So I bought the 35 ART.

Every year I take 2 or 3 group photos at the altar, and here I can use my streaklight an a softbox. I can't back up enough to use a 35. So I need a 24, a cheap option due to not using it much.

My bigger problem..... I'm headed up to the mauna Kea observatory today, just rented a 4x4, and I need to learn some basic astrophotography. Got my 5d3, 35 1.4 art, decent tripod, remote release..... don't know how to stack images, bit do know that 14 to 17 sec is max exposure without trails.

Thx

What about some of the older standard zooms? I am assuming then you will be stopping down where they might have acceptable sharpness for that. I am thinking the 24-85 or one of the 28-105s. I think there was a 3.5-4.5 one of 28-105s that was pretty good. Also there is the 28-135. This assuming 28 is wide enough otherwise go with the 24-85.

For night sky tonight read the crap out of the lonelyspeck.com website for getting good exposure.

24-85 was a good thought, found some for $75 to 100. Ended up buying an EF 24mm 2.8 for a bit more, what the market is bearing. I did read the crap out of lonelyspeck.com, and did a few milky way shots that I was happy with. The 24 would have been fun to have. Thanks for the help

Here is the shot that I need 24mm for; too much stuff behind me to backup and use my 35 ART. Thank you all again for the help.
