    Talking 135mm or 300mm

    Hi,

    this is a rather silly question but if i only have enough money to buy one fixed focal length telephoto lens,

    should i get the 135mm so i can do lots and lots of portraiture?

    or should i get the 300mm so it really allows me to do some superb wildlife photography..??

    no safari trip coming up so soon but i never know.. hee hee..

    thanks..

    Rather than buying one, why don't you just buy a 75-300 zoom or something like that for now. And then whey you got more money then go for the primes of your choice.

    I don't think 300mm is enough for much wild life.. unless you like to shoot elephants

    That will depend a bit on what mount you are on. If you are on Canon, maybe you can consider a 135mm f2.0L which is quite a bargain at about $1300 and it's easily one of the sharpest lenses in the series.
    In any case, respectable 300mm lenses will cost significantly higher and take some skill to master using.
