I got rid of the 50 for the 35. Sometimes I miss having that mid focal length with low aperture but most times I work with the 35 and 85s for most of the wedding day.

Yes I'm thinking a 35/85 combo would work for pretty much a lot of things! What occasions do you miss the 50?

I love the 35/85 combo. I'm just hoping Sigma releases an 85 Art soon.

I would be very interested in an 85 ART, but I doubt my wallet will be ready for it anytime soon.

Same here, Keeping myself from buying the 50A has proved hard enough.

When the 85 is too long and the 35 too short. ;)

Landing there looks like great fun.

Makes me want to follow my dream of learning to fly.

+1 for the 35/85 combo, though the ratio of use is about 90% / 10% in favour of the 35. The 85 is now solely used for portraits. Am thinking of the 135 for the trilogy, but not sure it will get much use.

These are both very strong images. Love the treatment too. Well done!

Thank you sir!

This ;)

I have 35+50+85 and all of them get equally used depending on the situation. I think all of them are very different!

I get a very, very slight hunch that the 35/85 combo is the way to go. ;) ...now, all I gotta decide is whether it's the 35A or 35L. :p
