I sold all of my Canon gear for an engagement ring, but now I'm saving for a good photojournal/portrait/wedding(secondary) setup, and I'd like to see what people think would be a good combo.
I would like to buy two 20ds with grips to have quick access to both a wide-ish and a long-ish lens. I like the 20d, and don't feel the need for anything newer, unless it's full frame.
Right now I'm thinking the Sigma 30 f/1.4 and Canon 85 f/1.8, but I'm open to other options, and would love to hear your suggestions.
I like the feel of the 35 and 85 combo on ff, and I'm pretty partial to primes, since more light and dof versatility are more important to me than zoom versatility.
I know that 30 and 85 on a 1.6 crop aren't ideal to simulate the 35/85/ff combo, but I can't really find any decent and fast 24 lens that fits my arbitrary budget (400 or so per lens to start with). The 85mm doesn't bother me so much. I might go with a 50mm f/1.4 anyway.
I guess what I am asking is if the 30/85 combo would be a good introduction back into Canonland, or is there something better that I'm missing?
I'm going to have to save for this gear anyway, so the budget I set is more for the sake of getting back into the game and starting a business than the most that I would be able to afford, so if you think that it would be worth my time and I would be happier and better equipped by waiting and saving for two 5ds and the 35 and 85 L's, then let me know. (In the meantime, I'm having fun with my girlfriend's d40 )
Sorry this is so long
Thanks in advance for your reading and response!
