1) no to 35mm film cameras
2) what I mean is..... 80mm -135 is what I like to shoot portraits and head shots with, and will I get the same look with the 7D and a 50mm for eg
Lemme explain further.
I have a 5d4 and a 7D2. I have been contracted to shoot a number of weddings. I am drfiting out of sports photography.
I need a backup body because of the nature of the work. I am trying to figure out the best way to use the 7d2 and a secondary camera to avoid changing lenses.
I have the following lenses: 16-26 2.8, 24-70 2.8, 70 - 200 2.8, 35 1.4. 50 1.4. 85 1.8, 100 2.0, and 100mm 2.0. I also have the 100-400 that I will not use.
So I am just thinking the best way to ustilise the 7d2 and a second body. My thinking was to leave the 35mm/50mm on it and use those lenses on most of the time.
That's why I asked.
George, I notice we have quite similar gear: FF, apsc, nice collection of zooms and primes. When I run into a question like this, I assemble gear and do the test-shoot myself. It is easy to mess with a variety of combinations when not under the gun for results.
About the only time I take two bodies anymore is to large family gatherings. The 6D gets wide-angle and fast primes, so a bit of lens switching. The 80D gets the 24-105, and little to no lens changes.
I have a 50mm. I don't use it much on either body, but it gets way more time on the crop than on the full frame.
BTW, nice to see you flying, again. Tell Ted I said, "Hi!"
