I get asked a lot about my favorite pieces of equipment. So I thought I would take a second and share about my favorite lens.
My all time, must have lens is the Canon 50mm 1.2 and I LOVE IT!
If I could only use one lens for the rest of my life, this would be the lens.
I use it for 90% of my work and it accounts for 99% of my favorite photos. At weddings if it wasn't for the ceremony, I would shoot the entire day with just that lens.
Now, it's a great lens, but at over $1,500 it is not cheap and I never recommend going into debt for equipment. So if you don't have the cash I have some good news. The Canon 50mm 1.4 comes in at only $350 is a really good lens. In fact many times, if you do things right you can't tell the difference in the finished photo.
