Panny 12-35mm compared to Canon 17-55mm
Thanks for your reply.
That is my concern. If I get the 25 1.4 first and then the 12-35, will I still use the 25 after the purchase of the zoom.
I have read a couple of posts that mention that they don't use the 25 or 20 now that they have the 12-35.
I'm wondering if it wouldn't be best to go for the more expensive 12-35 and then see if I want the 25 for the speed after that.
Decisions, Decisions, Hmmmm
Ive recently sold the Nikon 17-55 f/2.8 but haven't had the Canon version. I'd say the 12-35 can compete with the Nikon optically. i have the Panny 25 as well and the 12-35 and the 25 fill two very different roles for me. The 12-35 is looking like it will do quite nicely as a portrait lens but for candid indoor shooting the extra two stops of the 25 is invaluable. I use flash often when shooting indoors and flash power goes a lot farther at f/1.4 than it does at f2.8 -
Panny 25 @f/1.4
