Re: Which one would you choose?

What ever else you do, you could do worse that stick a 40mm  in your pocket, cheap small and sharp wide open

If you need to go faster than 2.8, you are probably best deciding on approx what focal length would be best

I normally use two of the following:- 70-200 2.8 Mark ll, or 135mm f2, and the shorty forty, or 21mm Zeiss

I also occasionslly use the siggy 15mm f2.8 fisheye its quite interesting and very wide, however I normally shoot small dark venues, and am not a pro

Word of caution on the 135mm its a cracking sharp wide open fast autofocusing lens with brilliant bokeh, but you will  need to keep shutter speeds up, because its not stabilised
