January 14, 2010
When I get a new camera, I think I'll need to pick up a f/2 or faster prime lens (maybe figure out some macro tricks as well). My trusty Minolta Z1 does f/2.8 wide open, but the sweet spots seem to hang out in f/3.5. I'd like to do some lower light shots, and a prime looks to be the cheapest way to go.
Side note - looks like there's a decent M42 adapter for Canon EOS cameras. This means I can get to the Pentax primes I'm liking, but I would lose image stabilization. The time is drawing short, but the contenders remain the Pentax Kx and the Canon EOS 500d (T1i)..
