i recently bought a 17-55mm f2.8 which is a lovely lens however, used a 35mm f1.4 last week on my 7d and it just felt so much better to use and i think it would give my photography a different edge. not long a go i bought a 50mm f1.8 and really do like it hence getting a positive feel for primes and thinking of going down the 35mm route.
admittingly i went for the 17-55 for the simple reason that it fitted the void in my current lens line up but i think the 35mm would actually work better for me. primarily i shoot people (indoor and outdoor) and cars and it would probably be used as my general walk-about lens for the time being until i have more funds for a lens with a little more reach.
so question to ask is, any other owners gone down this route?
