I'm starting from scratch, again! This is ultimately my choice, but I wanted to get some thoughts about a 2-3 lens kit for my use.
Camera: Canon 5D3
Types of Photography: Landscapes (mountain scenes), Portraits and general photography (vacations, birthdays etc).
Types of lenses: Wide angle + Normal + Telezoom
Specific lenses I've been considering: Canon 70-200 F2.8L (Non-IS), Sigma 35A, Sigma 50A, a wide-angle?
Budget: 1800-2200$ (used lenses)
I'm usually taking photos outdoors (with exception of a few birthdays)
I'm pretty sure I'm getting the 70-200 for nature and portraits (and sports), but what I'm unsure of is the lower end. And I won't be using the 70-200 indoors. For indoor use I want something < F1.4.
Is the Sigma 35A wide enough for landscapes and mountains scenes? Or is it too tight. The reason I though of the 35A was because might be wide enough for landscapes, but not too wide for for portraits and general photography indoors = versatile. But on the flip side I've had trouble framing with a 35mm before.
Is the Sigma 50A too alike 70mm? The reason I though of the 50A is because it's a good, versatile, F1.4 (for thin DoF and indoor use) etc. I can use it for nature and general photography, portraits. But if I choose the Sigma 50A, I'll need a wide-angle. Which? And not expensive like the 16-35L, 14L and 24L.
I already have the Canon 50mm F1.8 II.
Thoughts? Tips? Any input is appreciated!
