I've recently become very interested in street photography. I've come to the realization that my 17-40mm f/4L, 40mm f/2.8 STM, and 50mm f/1.4 USM are not suitable for this type of photography on APS-C sensors. The 17-40 is just too large of a lens and the 40mm and 50mm are too cropped in. I've decided that I want a fast wide-angle prime. Sure, 24mm and 28mm aren't wide angle per se on APS-C sensors, but with full frame in my future, one of them seems like a good investment.
Now, I've decided to get one of these Canon primes with IS because I have a physical deformity that hinders stabilization on my part. But I'm stuck deciding between the two focal lengths. I've run some tests at 24mm and 28mm with my 17-40, but I can't make up my mind. With street photography becoming something I want to experiment with more, which lens would you all recommend? Do any of you have experience with these new IS primes?
Thanks for your help!
Have you thought about the sigma 30 1.4? I had the original version on 7d for years with greet results
