Hey guys,

I’m considering a second lens in order to achieve more versatility. I mostly shoot lifestyle and travel with a bit of street. I currently own and in love with my 35mm f1.4, this thing is my #1 and my kit will be based around this one.

So here are the options, let me know what you guys think.

A) 35 f1.4 + 16 f1.4

B) 35 f1.4 + 23 f1.4

C) 35 f1.4 + 23 f2 + 16 f2.8 (obviously wait for the 16 in 2019).

I’m more inclined towards a 2 lens kit for simplicity but I would like to know your thoughts from expirience.

Btw, how much better is the 23 f1.4 vs the 23 f2?


I would get the 16 1.4... It opens up opportunities for creative shots, low light city scapes, indoor wide angle, etc.

I personally think the 23 is too close to be switching all the time, but, that's just me...

The 18 is a nice compliment as well (and tiny), but neither a 24 or 28 FOV lens is flattering for people, and you'll want to really center them in middle of the frame if you don't want serious distortion.
