| p.1 #1 · Alright - which lens to get? 40mm f/2.8 or 35mm f/2 |
My baby is getting fussy as I type so going to make this quick...I apologize...
I own a Rebel T2i. Got it with the kit lens. I also purchased a 50mm f/1.8 because I had one in the past and loved it. Still do! It is my go to lens..actually it's pretty much my only lens that is ever on the camera. I've rarely used the kit lens.
I want a wide angle lens now as I'm finding it frustrating at times taking pictures of my daughter (or other things in general) if I can't get far away enough from her to get her in the shot like I'd like. I have a $300 budget MAX and really would like to go cheaper. Currently looking at the 40mm pancake lens, or the 35mm f/2 wide angle lens. Would you say there is a discernible difference between those two that would make one better than the other? Any experiences? I understand my kit zoom lens can be wide angle up to 18mm, but I have never been that impressed with its image quality indoors and it also doesn't let a lot of light in with f/3.5.
Any opinions, picture examples, anything you can throw at me would be great!! I'm hoping to purchase something by tomorrow (ordering through Amazon) so I can have a new lens for Christmas...that is if I decide to actually get a new lens after all.
