24mm or 35mm prime for general use?
10 months ago

I shoot with a DF and usually a 24mm 1.4 and 85mm 1.4 prime combo. Almost all my pictures are of my family and I tend to shoot at f/4 or larger. It's a fun hobby.

I first bought the combo when i was shooting DX and especially liked the 24mm's 35mm equivalent.

Now that I'm on FX, I'm finding that the while I get incredible pictures from the 24mm, it sometimes feels a bit wide and a 35mm would probably suit me better.

Do folks tend to use a 24/85 combo or 35/85 combo? I can't afford to keep a 24mm and 35mm lens. If I do switch, I'll probably get the sigma art.

Thanks!
