I want to get a 35mm prime as my next lens. Has anyone done a direct comparison between all three?
I will be using this mostly for street photography, both day and night shooting.
I already have the Nikkor 24-70 f/2.8 lens, so I know what my shots will look like at that reach. I like the wider shots over the 50mm length.
I saw one review where the 24-70 was much sharper at 35mm than the Sigma ART at f/2.8. I could not find anything that compared the Nikkor 35 1.4 or 1.8 compared to the 24-70. The reason I want a prime is that I like the smaller stance when out in public. The 24-70 gets a lot of attention so people are always looking at me. I can get more candid shots when I use my 50mm.
I won't be making a purchase until March, after I get my work bonus, so I have some time to ponder about this. I am aware of the price differences, but ignore that for now, unless you feel it is completely relevant.
My current lens collection is:
- Nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8
- Nikkor 70-200mm f/2.8 (not the VR II version)
- Nikkor 50mm f/1.8D
