Which is precisely why i am testing my last remaining zoom against primes i wish to buy to find out which one will better it and provide the focal length i require. Is that too hard for you to understand ?
Prime you wish to buy? According to your other thread, you already own the 85 1.8 (see quote below).
This is too hard for me to understand.
BTW, you must be lucky to have people still trying to give you good advice. I have seen zooms trashed in general, the 85 1.2 trashed in the other thread, and recently the 70-200mm II and shots using it undermined (http://www.canonrumors.com/forum/index.php?topic=20817.0).
I really have to applaud the patience of the CR members.
Hi. Recently purchased the 85 1.8 for portraits and weddings to go along with my other primes , and have to say a little dissapointed with its performance especially at 1.8/2 where i was expecting greater things, it also has the worst CA i have seen on any lens wide open especially on reflective surfaces or indoors
I am considering the 135 to go with my 24 and 35 primes and still have the 24-105 and 70-200 with my assistant so those bases cover , the quality of the 35 is that good that i believe it can fill much of the gap left between 35-135 just by cropping, anyone else gone this route or have any advice ? Or anyone got the 85 1.8 and think i may just have a dud ?
