New Canon 35mm f1.4 Usage question
Oct 18, 2011

I have a newly acquired Canon 35mm F1.4 which I will be using with either of Canon XSI or mostly the Canon 1D Mark iiN. For low light event shooting ie wedding reception/birthday party I have been shooting with 70-200 f2.8 IS in Manual mode with 550EX flash and settings of aperture 2.8 and shutter 1/60 ISO 1600. Using higher shutter speeds was making the ambient too dark so I stuck with 1/60 shutter. This was producing pretty good sharp results. Now with the 35L what is the minimum shutter I can get away with and still have sharp pics in low light party event shooting? Any feedback appreciated
