Hi
I have the 50mm f2 , 18-180 f3.5 n 70-300mm lens

I would purchase either a wide angle lens 11-22 or 14-54 for landscape to my E30 as this will be my first f2.8 lens

Thanks

Hi there,

I do agree with the others that both lenses serve quite different purposes.

I don't own the 14-54, but from all I've seen in the past 10 years, it seems to be a highly versatile workhorse.

Looking at  the lenses you already own, it seems to me that the 11-22 might add more to your line-up. Here is my reasoning:

18-180 probably serves you well as a walk around lens

50/f2 is great for portraits and macro, 70-300 does the obvious and is also good for macro

so your "greatest gap" would be in the wide-angle department (if you are interested in wide-angle of course!)

I find the combo of 11-22 and 40-150 quite handy, and I could imagine that 11-22, 50, 70-300 make a great match. I don't think that those gaps matter all that much.

just my 2c,

Kai
