Here's the "best" question again.

What do you want to photograph?

Dan Brown , Feb 06, 2004; 10:12 a.m.

35/1.4 AIS; 50/1.2 AIS; 85/1.4 AIS

Speed rules.

I have every focal length from 20mm to 300mm in AI / AIS versions, and many focal lengths replicated in many different aperture speeds.

I could live quite well with only my 24mm f/2.8, 35mm f/1.4 and 105mm f/2.5.

If your photographing landscapes or want depth of field, how does speed rule. I never use f2.8 or even f4. How about the 50mm 1.2?

80-200 AFD 2.8, 28-70 AFS 2.8, 35 AI 1.4.

Didn't we discuss this recently? This guy had a 6mm fisheye, a 2000mm/f11 reflex .... For the 3rd lens, let's go for a 200mm medical.

W J Gibson , Feb 06, 2004; 11:03 a.m.

AI ---- 20mm f4, 50mm f2, 105mm f2.5
