Hi guys, I hope this thread doesn't become a commonly ranted thread that gets slammed, nevertheless, its an indication of BBB symptoms. Keeping it short and sweet.
1) Currently own Kit(IS)+50/1.8 + 55-250 on 350D
2) Aiming to buy 85/1.8 (or 135L)
3) Student on finite budget
Option 1) Buy 85/1.8 and thats it, my system is done.
Option 2) Sell 55-250, skip 85, buy 135L
Difference: option 2 around 150-200 more $$ damage
Main use: Candids, (currently 55-250 is my favorite walk around lens, and I actually use the 200-250 end quite a bit due to laziness to foot zoom, a lot of times prefer not to spoil moment, considering getting a fast lens so can do indoors as well, 90% of my keeper shots are with 55-250. I find it sharp enough if I get focus spot on.)
Secondary uses: Concert, Portraits (135 too long?), mainly just those 2.
135L too ex and heavy? maybe I'll miss my long end also. (less flexible)
85/1.8 or even 100/1.8 turn in some v bad CA wide open? Not as sharp also.
So guys, which do you think more worth? Hope a discussion can help me to explore something I overlook and provide moral support! Thanks in advance!
