Just when I think I've got it figured out I read some more great info on these boards.
I'm in a bit of a quandry about which lens to pick as my first investment for my Canon
50D. (I only have the kit lens at the moment.)
I had pretty much decided on the 50mm f 1.2 for kind of an all around first prime lens. I also wanted to get a 60mm macro lens because the thought of shooting "bug faces" intrigued me. I'm wondering though are the two lenses too similiar in nature? I mean will the 60mm do pretty much what the 50mm can do?
Then after reading Colins opinion on the 24-70, I'm thinking the extra versatility would be a big plus. Is this lens as sharp as the 50mm? I know it's cheaper. $1200 as opposed to $1400. Perhaps the 24-70 and then a 100mm macro.
At this point I'm sure anything will far surpass the kit lens. I value the opinions on these boards and look forward to any input, advice, and suggestions.
Thanks in advance,
