    I want something thats good for street shooting. Mainly interested in graffitti and people. Should I go with a wider angle lens or stick with the 55-135mm?

    Much Mahalos!

    I use a 28 to 200 but it is a bit slower than I would like.

    I have also had great luck with a 50 mm 1.4f

    Are you on a crop or full-frame camera?

    For street photography, I think you need a wider angle to keep more background in so their is context to the pictures of the people. A 35mm (on a full-frame) might be a good choice. It depends to a great extent on your personal style though.

    For grafitti, just about any focal length would be good, although a longer one will minimise distortion. Your current one should be fine - take it out and try it. If the grafitti is in confined spaces where you haven't got the distance to use your current lens, again you'd need something wider.
