I became so attached to the Canon 50mm f1.4 prime lens that it is rarely removed from my Digital Rebel. Some disucussion about adding a new lens to my arsenal has taken place, given that Christmas gifts are in order.
However, I have held back.
There is little point in buying new equipment without careful consideration about what sort of shots I wish to take. The sharpness that prime lenses offer has made me veer away from zooms from the time being. I wonder if an 80 mm prime, which will grow to the equivalent of 105mm or 110 mm due to crop factor, might be the best choice.
This may be just the lens for neat architectural shots of bridges and buildings while wandering round town.
