Re: Need Advice: Just switch from Nikon to Canon and need a new lens

I agree with BAK.. I own the 24-70 2.8 its my workhorse lens.. it truly is great.. and is so versatile.. i use it for interior shots on the 24 end, and I use it a lot for social gatherings and event shooting... but take note... it is very heavy after a while!...

also agree with BAK on the primes.. if you are used to shooting primes, go for it... the 50 1.4 you will enjoy but be very careful.. its a fragile lens, especially in the front..but if you buy a good copy and take good care of it, the results for a lower price are great. If you wanna go cheaper the 1.8 is good.. if you wanna go wider the 35 f/2 is a good choice..could be a little soft on the edges though..

if money isnt an object and you want a wider than 50 prime...absolutely grab the 35 1.4L.. it is a gem!

Good luck.
