Hi fellow CSer,
I have just gotten the 17-55 f2.8 for general purpose use. Just want to check with you guys, whether adding a prime e.g, 85 f1.8 or 50 f1.8 is redundant. I love taking portraits and find that this lens that I got can do the task quite well. However I was thinking if the latter mentioned lenses will give an even more impressive result. The 17-55 f2.8 have burnt quite a hole in my pocket by the way.....
Another question, I also got a 270ex flash together with the lens. I know that the flash can only work from 18mm onwards, at 17 there will be some dark shadow. Will a diffuser be able to help solve the issue? Regardless, is getting a diffuser advisable for this flash? I am using a 60D. Didn't get the better flashes because of the size.
Your viewpoint is greatly appreciated.
