Re: Your thoughts on this Prime Kit?

No I don't think there's enough spread between 35mm and 50mm...but I'm really really starting to hate the 24-50mm range on a cropper and i'm selling my 18-50mm zoom. I haven't taken a picture on that range in at least 7 months!! I'm covered all the way to 24mm by the Tokina 12-24mm so 35mm fits right in between 24 and 50! I know i'll use the 35mm prime rarely but when I do I want the pictures to stand out so i'll use it wide open. my shots at 35mm with the zoom have a P&S feel Maybe it's just the photographer. Plus F2 is a lot faster too
