    Hi all,
    I'm looking for a lens that I can walk around with.
    Currently my gear is this
    • 1300d
    • 18-55mm kit lens
    • vintage Olympia 35mm f2.8 prime
    I've started to use the 35mm more as its new to me, reason I got it was because of the low aperture and the fact that it forces me to move in order to get the shot I want. I prefer this lens over the 18-55 for just walking around with.

    The lenses I'm thinking about are :
    1. Canon Nifty Fifty
    2. Canon 24mm f2.8 ef-s
    I have no idea what I should get, heck I'm not sure If I should even get another lens because of the 35mm.

    Yeah, I'm leaning that way a bit.
    It will have to be bought at a later date, I just got a Zenith et film camera and a helios 44-2 for 20 euro, not a bad find

    18-55 is not a good lens to work with! If you want to cover portraits you can go for 50mm(1.8) at a cheaper rate! If you can effort,85mm(2.8) is a great option!
    If you're wishing to have a zoom lens,then try 18-135 or 55-250 which is cheaper than pro lenses!
