  • It is 200 grams lighter, I didn't know that! I'll give it a try whenever I have the chance. Thank you!
  • I do own a 40 2.8 and it's a great little lens, just not for work in my opinion. First because of the looks, and second because I'd rather use a 50 1.4 for a 40mm, or a 35 f2 in this case. The 40 ...
  • You can shoot a full wedding with a 35mm too, but It's not my ideal choice. The 24-105 and 24-70 are great options for some people but I prefer fixed focal lenses. Mainly because of the wider ...
  • Hey Yake! That looks similar to the weight I'm carrying every day. A heavy body, a heavy lens, and other ones to work with. I'm trying to go lighter and use less lenses than you (two or 3 would be ...
  • It is our busiest month of the year, and yes, it's been a crazy amount of work. The 85 1.4 looks simply amazing, but it's VERY heavy as well. I have finger pain in the ones I use to hold the camera ...
  • Thanks Austin! I didn't consider the 135 to be honest but I don't know if it makes a lot of sense since the 85 1.8 is so much lighter. I'll keep it in mind and grab one on my trip to NY to see if ...
  • Hi Selene, thank you! I do own a 16-35 f4L IS and it is SO much better in sharpness than the 2.8 II, you are right on that. It's not much lighter than the 2.8 though, and that's a problem. I'm ...
  • Thank you! I can get a 40 and an 85 1.8 to test this week, but the 24mm I'll have to buy it first. The 40mm is a great lens but 2.8 doesn't really cut it for me. My biggest problem with the 35 is ...
  • I actually carry the lenses with my back not with my hand.. so that's definitely not the problem. If the college kid could hold my camera while I'm shooting, I'll be paying him $200! My problem is ...
  • Thank you Gearoid, but I'm trying to stick with Canon at the moment :)
  • Thank you! That's my biggest question so far.. how much would I lose in quality switching from the 35 1.4 to the f2. I shoot wide open quite a bit, but I'd rather have the lighter lens these days. ...
  • Created discussion thread Reducing weight with Canon Gear
    Hello guys, I'm shooting a lot of weddings lately and my hands are starting to suffer because of it. Finger pain is common, I'm tired of carrying 10+ pounds of gear to every event. A few things to ...
