Re: Fast prime lens for Canon 650D

Hello everyone,

I am scouting for a lens to extend my available glass. I have the Canon EOS 650D with a 18-135mm STM lens and I am now looking for a new lens.

I am basically looking for a fast, sharp lens, around 400-500 euros. I was first inclined to the 50mm f/1.4, but since it will mostly be dedicated to take photos of people and indoors, it might be a bit on the high end of the focal distance. Alternatively I was thinking of the SIGMA 30mm f/1.4.

What do you guys think?

Cheers for any comments/advices!

I bought a 650D last night actually (body only) and I'm planning on getting a 50mm f1.8 for it since I've a great love and passion for portraits. But considering what you said you could probably go for a canon 35mm or something along those lines
