Two Nikons and a Sigma
In reply to HRonen, 4 months ago
  • Nikon 24 1.4G  - focuses really close, great in low light. 24 is sort of a magic fixed length for me. I don't want to give up the 2 stops necessary to get a zoom
  • Sigma 50mm 1.4 Art - an Otus with AF
  • Nikon 70-200 2.8 vrII

Everything is a compromise, and though I own the "trinity", you have to make hard choices to get down to 3 to cover most of what you tend to shoot.   I don't want to give up 2 stops of available light shooting over the whole range so that got me into one or two primes. The 24 is a special focal length for me and I find many, many of my favorite shots with a 50 at f2 or faster (love the out of focus bokeh).  The zoom allows me to cover sports and portraits reliably.
