Hubby wants to get me a new lens for Christmas (yay!) but I'm a bit torn between a few. We were planning on winning Tuesday's lotto but as that fell through I'm going to have to choose...
I have a 50mm 1.8 already and really enjoy using it. I don't mind using my feet to zoom but I do get frustrated that I can't get right up close (people shots)
My first thought was 24-70 2.8 but now I'm thinking 35 1.8 + 85 1.8. Is this a prime overkill? I love taking portraits and beach shots. I'm not into street photography, wildlife, sports etc so would a zoom be a waste on me? I know that having to switch between lenses might mean a few missed opportunities but as long as I get a handful of quality shots I'm ok with that..
What are everyone's thoughts?
Oh, and I also have a Tokina 11-16 which I use for landscapes and some people shots (when I want something that looks a bit different)
