Lenses / Canon 40mm f/2.8 vs. 50mm f/1.4 vs. 28mm f/1.8
« on: November 17, 2012, 05:21:10 PM »
So I currently own a 50mm 1.4, but am wondering if I should consider getting the  40mm or 28mm, to use as a somewhat 'normal' lens on my crop-sensored cameras. The main reason I'm considering, is because my Dad recently bought a 50mm f/1.2L, and my 1.4 doesn't seem as needed anymore. Also, I'm somewhat worried about the focus mechanism problems that have been known to occur with the 1.4. I'd mainly be using this lens to carry around during times I didn't feel like lugging around my 24-70 f/2.8 (Casual street phtography, family occasions, etc.) Suggestions?

When I'm doing portraits with it, It'll probably be outdoors. I can definitely handle the indoors aspect with the 24-70 and the 50 f/1.4.

Yes, I'm referring more to the taking pictures of small objects aspect of it. I don't anticipate that I'll be doing much of the tripod-ed macro-type photography.

Hi Everybody,

I'm looking into getting a 100 f/2.8L or 135mm f/2L, to do some portrait/ macro work. I won't be using the Macro a ton, but would like the feature. As of today, my budget only allows for one or the other, so I could use your help in deciding between the two.

Right now, I'm using a 24-70 f/2.8L Mark I, and a 50mm 1.4 on a 50D Body.
