I've finally decided to go ahead and get the 17-55. I've been dreaming about it for so long now that I figure I might as well just go ahead and get it. I think my photography is at a level now where I can warrent spending that much. Besides, I absolutely love the hobby. My question is, in your opinion, which prime would be the best to compliment the 17-55?
Right now, I have a Sigma 30 f/1.4 and the Canon 50 f/1.8. I really like both focal lengths. I love the quality of the Canon 50 but I can't live with the focusing. I use this lens at night most of the time and I find myself having to manual focus way more than I'd like to.
I'm wondering, which focal length would be more useful to have the large aperture for? As of now, I'm thinking I'd rather have f/1.4 at 50mm instead of at 30mm because 50mm is such a good focal length for portraits on a crop camera. With my f/1.4 lens, I'm after the ability to get creative with OOF areas and to take nice portraits.
What does everyone think?
