    Prime lens

    Hi everyone,
    I am looking at a prime lens for the MK111
    at present considering Sigma 35 or 50 mm 1.4 in the 35 I am quite attracted to the new "Art" series lenses
    Any thoughts
    I will primarily use it for portraiture (new & existing grand children and street shots)
    At present very happy with 24-105 and 17-34 L series

    Maybe the 50 1.4, opens up a whole new world for playing with depth of field, working in low light etc.

    I haven't tried the new art series but they get good reviews.

    A 50mm focal length on FF is more conducive to portraiture, the 35 is a little wide and may give the "big nose" effect. However, the Sigma 35mm f1.4 is a gem.

    Thanks for the tip
    I have commited to the Canon 50mm 1.2 arrives next week
    from what I have read etc this is probably the best for my needs
    just a "bit" pricey though
