Re: Your Holy Trinity of lenses

1) Canon FDn 35/2 - all-rounder for normal/landscape/street/portrait/DoF-bokeh

2) Canon FDn 100/2.8 - great for extra length in a discreet light-weight package

3) SEL1628 - for the occasional wide angle

+ Minolta Close-up #2 to make the 35/2 a pseudo-macro completes my lightweight do-everything kit!

Will possibly add the UWA and/or fish-eye for the SEL1628, and maybe a tele-extender for the FDn 100/2.8.

Currently enjoying a fine new FDn 24/2.8, but it may go the way of my great FDn 50/1.4 & 28/2.8, elbowed out by the 35/2! And I still keep my SEL1855 around for easy snapping on hot holidays (who wants to  manual focus in 40+ degrees? :-)). And a few lovely fast fifties and a large heavy Vivitar 90/12.8 macro and Tokina 80-200/4...
