Not for me

Half and double do not give me enough options. I usually carry four primes:

  • 24
  • 35
  • 50
  • 85

I usually use all of them for an event I am shooting. Besides the different focal lengths, they are all of different manufacturers, generations, and basic lens designs so I get a variety of different visuals in the bokeh, flare, and other less tangible attributes.
