My Ideal Lens List

5.17 Size comparison of 50mm f/1.2L, 85mm f/1.2L, and

i-70mm f/2.8L lenses

♦ 14mm f/2.8L II. This is well built, is strong optically with a rectilinear 114-degree field of view, and is small in size. As mentioned, this is a superb lens when you need the super-wide shot, such as architectural images, whether interiors or exteriors.

♦ 24mm f/1.4L. A fast and sharp wide lens that is great for groups of people at low-light events.

♦ 24-70mm f/2.8L. As noted, mine works very well and could be the one single lens I would choose — if I had to make a choice. Some folks swear by the older 28-70mm L as having improved image quality.

♦ 24mm TS-E. Always keep this lens in mind when shooting architecture or landscapes, if not to purchase, then to rent.

♦ 35mm f/1.4L. Another main lens, tack sharp as noted, great in low light, not too wide for environmental portraiture, yet wide enough to cover many situations.

♦ 45mm TS-E. This lens gives you a lot of creative control, a bit like a mini-view camera.

♦ 50mm f/1.2L. This lens offers better detail, contrast, and color than the 50mm f/1.4; it just feels right on the 1Ds III and can take advantage of the full range of detail coming off the 1Ds III sensor.
