What lens should be added ?
May 26, 2012

After having the 7K for a year, I'd like to add a lens to what I've already had: the kit lens 18-105mm and the prime 50mm f/1.4.

I hope you could help me to make a decision. It would be very appreciated. In the last few weeks, after reading many reviews and feedbacks, I'm hesitating between those two lenses:

1. Sigma 17-70 f/2.8-4 Macro
2. Prime macro Tokina 35mm f/2.8 .

I need a slightly wide lens that offers a decent close-up capability. My budget is about $600. If it were you, what lens would you pick ?

My shooting habits:

  • 50% indoors, 50% outdoors

  • 1% macro, 4% close-up, 95% regular

  • 70% people, 20% objects, 10% landscape

Criteria of selection:
1. Price (if not, I'd buy the famous 24-70mm)
2. IQ
3. Versatility
