Canon 28mm f1.8 or Canon 24-105 f4
Jul 12, 2014

Hi everyone,

First off, I'm looking to hoard lenses for my Canon 5D Mk II.  Right now only have the  Canon 50mm f1.8 II.

I bought the Canon 28mm f1.8 on a whim, but now I find that Canon 24-105mm looks like a better walk around lens.  I also consider the Tamron 28-75mm f2.8 as an alternative.

My question is, should I keep the Canon 28mm prime (is it a good lens for the money?) or sell it and add an extra 100 EU to buy a used 24-105mm.  Also, what do you think about the Tamron option?

And any other suggestions for a 5D Mk II body?  I primarily want to have 1 wide, 1 middle and 1 tele focal range(which will likely be Tamron 150-600mm).  I don't wish to go above 1100 EU for a single lens.

Thank you!
