@ 7enderbender - yeah, I suppose I could live without these lenses but then again I've already invested a lot of money in my gear, slowly building it up. Seems silly to just stop now, especially when this close to my ideal kit! I already have a 430 ex II speedlite, 2 Yongnuo 560 II, umbrellas, light stands, bags, cases the lot. Don't need insurance, live in Japan. No one will nick your gear here. If I break it al buy a new one!
But back to 35 and 135. Hmmm boring focal length? I guess you could say that but depends how you use it. I want it for full length portraits and enviromental portraits. I know that shallow dof look is hard to get at that focal length. That's part of the reason I wanna try it! I want to push myself and improve my skills as a photographer rather than just improve my photoshop skills!
I'm certain about the 135L now. I'll keep the 85mm, it's not taking up space so no point selling it. It's a shame that lens fringes so much between 1.8 and 2.8. Or I would have been content. I can ser the purple without even zooming in! And I'm not about to spend hours correcting 1000 odd images.
Now I wish I had two FF bodies. Curse you crop factor!
