Yeah, I really don;t know what I want to focus on. Maybe I am not cut out for the full frame world.

What do you shoot with?

But which focal length to use (and which aperture) will be the main question after having settled on a subject---WITH EVERY SINGLE PHOTOGRAPH. Regardless of the camera type.

Give us some reason for your 100mm f2 or 70-200 f4?

Why only primes as a start (50mm f1.8 and 85 f1.8), but then suddenly a f4 zoom, and not the 70-200 f2.8?

Why not the 24-105mm f4, as many suggested? It's a good walk around, and if light dimishes, use the 50mm.
