Great pictures Scott.  Looks like the kids had a blast!

Did the two lenses work out as expected or did you find yourself wishing you had other lens options?

+1

I'm really impressed with the bokeh in your Sigma 35mm shots. Less so with 135L, but then I'm the only person on CL who's not a fan of that lens.

I love my go to 50L which I am used to, so shooting at 35mm on FF was quite a bit different, therefore leaving the 50L at home gave me no choice but to get used to a wider focal length.  The bokeh on the 135 was stunning, and again took a bit of getting used to as I have only used the 70-200 2.8 II previously.

I love wide aperture, therefore love my primes.  I was happy with just taking these two lenses, but as mentioned my kids are quick on their feet, so had to be quicker on mine :)
