Fast begins at f2...
In reply to Great Bustard, Mar 9, 2013

A fast lens a f2.8 lens is not, fast begins at 2.  I know there is literature out there that suggests f2.8 is fast, it isn't.  For me, f2 is beginning to appear slow (in choice of shutters speeds at a given ISO).

With your budget, look for a used 50mm f1.4.
