Hello, i am looking for some advice on which lens to purchase for shooting up close in night clubs.
I have a D600 and currently have a 50mm 1.8, love it. Its beautiful but obviously to distant for clubs, and a 28-300mm Nikkor, which again, Love it! but its A)super heavy and B)f3.5
Ive shot with my 50mm in clubs and love the effect of using it on f2.2-2.8 it allows much more background bleed of the lights and the obvious bokeh of said lights.
I like the 28-300 for the 28mm range. So im looking at 28mm primes and 24mm and well.. everything lol.
But im seeing reports of the Tamron 28 primes not being super sharp as well as some other points of de-quality in the cheaper lens's aimed around that wide angle area.
If i had 700-2000 dollars i would buy nice glass for sure, but till then. I'm looking for under $500..
So my question is. For sharpness and quality im accustom to in my 28-300mm do i need to drop top dollar to find a between 20mm and 30mm wide lens to replace it with lower aperture, possibly less weight, lens?
