| Re: 1.2 and 1.4 wasted on 35mm and 24mm? |
...Shooting theatre or concerts up close, shooting markets scenes in low light, shooting street performers up close within the actual street environment...a wide fast lens is indispensable.
... or a camera that does a clean ISO 12,800.
I've some pretty decent luck with this using cameras that do a decent 800-3200. (In my case that means the 5DII and the Fujifilm X-E1).
The first two of the attached were both shot handheld with the 5D2. The first was at ISO 3200 using the 24-70 II. The second was shot at ISO 1600 using the 70-200mm f/4.
The third was shot handheld using the Fujifilm X-E1 at ISO 6400 with the 35mm f/1.4 lens, in conditions so dark that most people weren't even aware I was making photographs.
