I think the Missus wouldnt really appreciate us going out of our way for me trying out lenses :p But just in case - what island would you be on?
I kinda figured that might be the case. But just in case, I'm on Oahu, although it's not uncommon for me to hop a plane to another island. e.g. I was on Maui a couple weeks ago to watch our volleyball team play Nebraska.
Since you have/know all the lenses, is there one that you would reccomend for me or is it really just about my personal preferences?
I'd be hard pressed to recommend just one lens without for information. Especially since, in addition to personal preference, shooting conditions may also come into play. For example, I do a lot of music/band photography, so there are times, in a large crowd, when I can't get as close to the stage as I might like, and that necessitates a longer lens. There are also times, in a small bar, when I can't back up as far as I might like, and that necessitates a shorter/wider lens. And that leads into...
do u feel like it is too narrow for you like Mike said (if u have a crop sensored one)?
Yes and no. If I can't get the shot with one particular lens, I switch to something else. In addition to the ones we discussed previously, I also have the 35mm f2 that Mike mentioned, as well as a 100mm f2, 135mm f2, 200mm f2.8 and on the wide end, a Tokina 11-16mm f2.8 (in addition to a bunch of other m4/3 lenses, which leads into...)
They've all been used at various shoots on my m4/3 (2X crop) GH1 and GH2, as well as my partner's 7D (1.6X crop) and 5DII (full frame). Well, obviously the EF-S Tokina doesn't work well on the 5DII, but other than that...
