I am getting my new (to me) 400D this week and already have a EF-S 18-55mm IS waiting to go on.
I like taking candid/street/portrait and i think i would like to go prime. I have been blown away by the quality of the 50mm f1.4 and the 85mm f1.8 and would like to get one of these lenses but i don't know which. I have enough for either (not both! )as they are about £280 new each .
I think the 50mm would be great but i'm worried that it may be a bit short for candid as i don't want to get into peoples faces while taking their photo, i like to hide a bit!
Another option i have thought about for the same money is the 50mm f1.8 and the 55-250 IS. The 55-250 IS would let me shoot from a distance but i'm not sure the image quality is there although i would be happy with the Nifty f1.8.
I have also been offered a 60mm Macro but i don't know if the reach is there.
Thanx in advance
