Much as I loved it, I no longer own this lens:
Instead., I own the 85mm f/1.2. More glass.
Why can I live without the 35mm? Because I have a crop camera too. And the 35mm f/1.4, which I also own, on the crop camera is very similar in effect and angle to the 50mm on a full frame camera.
And that is the point. I have:
- 35mm f/1.4
- 45mm f/1.2 T/S
- 85mm f/1.2
- 100mm f/2.8
- 16-35 f/2.8
- 24-70 f/2.8
- 70-200 f/2.8
But that also means I have, approximately:
- 55mm f/1.4
- 72mm f/1.2 T/S
- 135mm f/1.2
- 160mm f/2.8
- 26-55 f/2.8
- 38-110 f/2.8
- 110-320 f/2.8
So the total number of focal lengths I have:
- 55mm (*)
(*) By using the Canon 7D, a 1.6 crop camera
So I have a very wide range of available focal lengths! If you have two crop factors, that is how you should look at your lenses. Making dfo with what you have is a great thing.
Yet another reason to own two cameras.
