im a long time lurker on this site visiting almost daily to look at images and to see whats up.. i have a dilema now about my gear which wont stop going around in my head, so i thought id reach out to the collective wisdom.
i use a 5d mkii usually with a canon 50mm1.4 lens, and also have canon 16-35 f4, 100m f2.8 and a sigma 120-400.
now i think its a great set-up, but im usually using the 50mm, because its a great focal length, but also because of its compact size, maybe it comes with age, but i cant be bothered to lug round too much stuff anymore!
my dilema is two fold; i am very tempted to go mirrorless due to its compactness and will probably get my missus a fuji just to scratch that itch.
but im not sure im ready to give up the slr just yet. i like the simplicity and weight of primes and what im thinking is to have in my camera bag
* 5d: 50mm 1.4, a 20mm 2.8?? and possibly a 1.5x extender.
should cover everything i need without big zooms. i would sell the 16-35 and 100 and keep the telephoto for sport/occasional use. i think it makes sense since my main objective is to have a small/light bag which i will take everywhere, but on the otherhand im struggling to sell these lenses which both take fantastic photos.
another thing that bugs me is that the 50mm in some ways is my least favourite lens! e.g. build quality, autofoucs. and ive read that theres quite some distortion with the 20mm...
im not sure really what my question is, but at least i feel better getting that off my chest!!
appreaciate any thoughts, cheers
