I love the results from my Nifty Fifty, however I find the AF to be slow, and the results sometimes to be inconsistent....
I know the logical choice is to get the 50mm 1.4 with USM, however would like the ability to shoot a few macro shots.
That leads me to look at the 60mm 2.8 lens, which seems to be a very good lens. From what I can gather its tack sharp wide open @ 2.8, is that that case?
The other options I guess is the Sigma 30mm / 50mm 1.4, however I see alot of reports of bad copies.
I dont have a fortune to spend, so cannot go dearer than the above mentioned lens.
Purpose? Portraits. I currently use the Nifty from 2.4-4 with my flash bouncing, and find I get good results.
The other options that I was looking at was the Sigma 18-50mm 2.8 or the Tamron 17-50 2.8, as they would offer the flexibility of zoom for kids portraits (as they move allot)
All opinions are welcome.
