| Re: Primes vs Zooms |
I originally asked this question because I'm wanting to make some changes to my setup. I have a 40D with a kit 18-55 and a 50mm 1.8 and I'm wanting a faster, wider lens for indoors with the kids. ... I was thinking about buying a Sigma 1.4,
You were typing while I was so my answer did not address this specific question. A specific need like this is good, because lens makers design lenses for specific needs.
I think I could shoot this kind of thing with only 30mm on APS-C (it is a standard lens for that format), but it could be too tough for you. You can't just adjust the framing, you have to think on your feet and work the composition to make the new framing work.
I also think I would not want to do it. Why don't you get that flash, stop down to improve the image quality of the zoom you have, and blast away?
