I recently made quite few changes to my lens line up. The new lens were a 70-200L F2.8 IS II and a Sigma 85mm F1.4. I use both full frame and crop bodies.
My shooting varies but I shoot mostly in this order model shoots, portraits, nature, photo journalism and of course family/ pleasure.
To get the Sigma 85 I sold my Canon 135L. I am wondering if others have had to make a similar decision? The 85mm will mostly be used with the full frame.
I loved the 135L but I found it a bit long when doing shoots with models using the full frame. I sold a 50 F1.4 also, it seemed a tad too short. The fullframe is my go to body when doing these types of shoots. To get full body shots and good composition I found myself standing back far enough to where I almost had to yell directions at the model. Or have my assistant relay conversation. Or use body language. I am talking about location shoots with wind and other distracting noises. Maybe my age is showing poor hearing and sight?
I am also considering another change by selling the 16-35L II and getting another canon 10-22 (both fine lens). It would free up a little more cash. That is a tough decision too... in theory I could set up both bodies with lens. One wide and one long. I will probably work with the lens I have now for awhile. When need arises to have both bodies ready set the full frame up with the 16-35L and the crop with the 70-200 or 24-105.
Anyone have any thoughts or ever had a similar experience?
