Walk-around FX lens: 28mm vs 35mm
Mar 17, 2014

I know such a question has no answer that applies to everyone, but was just wondering what people's thoughts are about 28mm versus 35mm as single focal length walk-around?

I have a couple of young kids that end up being in a significant fraction of my photos, which probably is an argument for 35mm. On the other hand I like wide perspectives, e.g., showing the interaction of subjects with their environment.

Specifically I'm torn between the 28mm f1.8G nano-coated Nikon and the 35mm Sigma f1.4 ART. Finding the new Nikon 35mm just a tad over-priced, with the Sigma being available for about the same used and the Nikon 28mm currently available for $596.

Thanks in advance for sharing your thoughts.
