Am I crazy to sell 30/1.4 and 28/1.8 for 35L?
Dec 24, 2011

I have a Sigma 30mm f/1.4 which only works on my 7D and a 28mm f/1.8 for my 5D2. Both are fine lenses but I have been debating selling both to help fund a 35L which would work on either body. I would use this lens as a walkabout and for people pictures.

Another option I have considered is just selling the Sigma and getting a Samyang 35/1.4. I would want to add a focus confirm chip to it. I use the EG-S focusing screen on the 5D2 and can focus manually well enough with either of my existing lenses.
What are your thoughts?
