[35mm 1.4 + 50mm 1.4] Vs [28mm 1.8 + 50mm 1.2]
Apr 11, 2012

Hi All,

Pre Condition:

1. I have a beautiful new born girl.

2. I have the Sigma 30mm 1.4 which is awesome but very slow to focus [it takes like 2-3 sec each time] in low light. Which is 90% of its use
3. I need a very fast ideally in 28-35 range prime
4. I want one prime L lens
5. I need a 50mm, down the line when my daughter is about 1yr old

Option 1: Get the 35mm 1.4 L, and the then the 50mm 1.4
Option 2: Get the 28mm 1.8 and then get the 50mm 1.2 L

or forget about the L lenses

Option 3: Get the 28mm 1.8 and then get the 50mm 1.4

your opinion is much appreciated

I can rent all four and decide myself, but that would send me back by couple of hundred bucks. I'm as of now I'm leaning towards option 1

PS: I will sell my Sigma
