Primes only on SD1

Greetings Gary

If you want to get the most out of the SD1 you need prime lenses only. The zooms just won't do it, to soft at the edges and for my taste to slow. Sense the SD1 is good up to about ASA 800 you need the fast primes.

If it were me I'd go for



30mm or 50 marco

70mm or 85mm or 105mm


Ha, wait, it is me and I do have all those lenses plus 5 more and they work great but make sure you get a good copy of each. Do not forget a new flash or two the new EF610 super

So now Gary, now that you've bought the SD1 you can sell all the 3 party Canon stuff an just use the SD1 right?

Enjoy your new camera
