Haha thanks for backing me up Rudi, I thought that comment was rather odd as well.

Well, well. Different strokes. Personally, I think they are close enough not to warrant both. I assume you'd think both a 24 and a 28 would be superfluous? I even think my 28 and 50 are bordering on being too close to eachother.

24 and 28 are indeed close. but for some time I had both the 24 f/2.8 and the 28 f/2.8 and shot them regularly.

i use a 28/1.8 and a 50/1.4 IMHO they compliment each other well, esp on a FF camera :)

On a crop also! I sold my 17-85 IS to buy a 28 1.8. This is my normal (ane only) everyday lens.

you would think 7mm would make a huge difference but i find the 28 and 35 to be really close. they do have a little bit of a different look - i feel like the 28 has more of PJ look - so there is reason to have both if you can afford it. strangely enough, i find there is a huge difference between 24 and 28, despite it being only 4mm. IMO the 28 is much closer to the 35 than the 24.

I'm thinking about selling my 28... Not my style. I shoot with strobes and high apertures and..I don't know. A zoom is much more convenient for me right now. This lens is stellar..but it's just not my style. I wonder if I should keep it or let her go?

Your signature seems to have already decided..
But if a lens is not getting used as it deserved, better to get something you would use.

Are you finding it too wide? Or just not as convenient as a zoom?

^seriously it depends, but probably use the 50/1.4 more by a hair.

I just picked up this lens from the forum. I haven't really had much time to play with it yet, but I'm in a pj class this semester, so I'm thinking this will be my go-to lens on my 20d for that.

Not wide enough. And, for the amount of set up and tear down I have to do with my lights etc, I need/want/like the convenience of a zoom.

It's a nice sharp piece of glass, but I don't have room for all my strobes in my bag with it. Though, it is nice to carry around the town when I just want to bring a body + 1 lens with me. Lens of choice. Unfortunately, that's not that often, for me.

The deciding factor, however, is school. It's my priority, and I do need the dough for my books. So, it makes sense to me to sell it right now.


Best Regards,
-Ericson.
