I own a canon 650d/T4i, as well as the 18-55 kit lens and the 55-250 zoom.
I find that images from zooms are not really what i'm looking for and after some research, i think what i am looking for is really a prime lens. I like to take pictures of people, candids, sceneries, and shots of anything and everything when I travel. [Edit: Forgot to include that i may face low light situations when i travel. I do own an external flashlight though.]
The dilemma is: Which one?
1. Canon 50mm 1.8
Super sharp, even sharper than the 1.4. The bokeh of this isn't too great I would say /: Of course, my main idea is not to take pictures of bokeh but I don't think I'd want to see those pentagons whenever a bokeh appears. Also another factor I'm considering is that this has a plastic mount and idk, other than being more fragile it doesn't have any difference with the metal mount right?
2. Canon 40mm 2.8
3. Sigma 30mm 1.4 OR Canon 28mm 1.8
Because the 50mm would technically be an 80mm on my dslr, and I'm afraid it might be zooming a little too much for me (if i take a picture of something lying flat but i can't possibly lower it or lift myself higher). Found this review after someone recommended me to the sigma: http://www.focalplane.net/canon28sigma30/ Pretty stoked.
I could put in the money right now if i get either one of the 1.8s. Or get enough money for the 1.4 before april! Sorry this was a little lengthy but please help!!!!
[EDIT] Someone is selling the Canon 28mm F1.8 USM at $570 SGD (Around $450 USD?), mint condition hardly used. I am tempted. Is it worth it?
