Re: 75mm or 35-100mm

Here is my 2p as a family man with kids 6,5 & 3

I want that fixed 2.8 35-100mm for sports days and school plays - I feel I need the brightness and ability for fast shutter. (parent box ticked)

As for shallow depth of field Bokeh effect  - I have the 25mm 1.4 (parent box ticked)

As for wide angle - I personally favour everything in sharp focus so feel the a fixed 2.8 zoom 12-35 (?) wont suit me. So I want to collect primes.

Comment: As a parent, I dont want to look back at a gallery of my kids photos where they are always situated in a blurry background! Every shot a 'portrait'... I would like to sometimes get a record exactly where they were, capture the WHOLE scene. Toddlers and kids dont live in an exclusive, distanced world - we as parents are allowed in! You can always use your feet as a zoom.
