Ok, so I'm starting to want to learn to use prime lenses, to learn to frame better without the aid of a zoom lens etc...
I have the 5D Mark II, and I'm leaning towards getting the 85mm 1.8 and 50mm 1.4, so I can play around with those two focal lengths and try to learn using the primes without spending $1300 - $1500 for a L series prime.
Or should I just get the 35mm 1.4 L and learn on that one bad mofo?
The 85 1.8 and 50 1.4 would cost me around $700 total for used copies.
The 35 1.4 L would cost me around $1200 - $1350 total for a used copy.
Do I need the two different focal lengths, or just the one? I have the nifty fifty too, but it just never feels right on my camera with how its build quality is.
I've seen some shots from the 85 1.8 and 50 1.4 on the 5D Mark II, and I wouldn't have thought they were non-L glass, they were that good...but then the shots I've seen from the 35 1.4 L on the 5D Mark II were pretty amazing as well. I shoot mainly portraits, lifestyle, family type shots, a lot of kids, especially my one year old son.
So should I got two non-L primes vs. one L prime?
