So as the spring gets nearer and nearer and more and more work starts to come in, I feel that soon I will jump to MF. If I was independently wealthy I would get a Schneider 28, 35, 43, 60, and 100/120 (cant decide on this one). However, to my dismay, I am not independently wealthy, must work on a budget, and will only be able to get three lenses. Now I can do without the long ones and I know the 60 is a must have, so which of the remain three should I go for?
I know if I had all the lenses 75-80% of my work would be shot with a 35 and 43. Is it best to just go with these?
Or since I will need the occasional ability to go wide, should I get the 28 and 35, cropping down to 43 when need be?
Or based off of my guess that since the 35 is 10+ years old, and considering Schneider just redesigned their 28 and 60, hold off on getting the 35 (since it may be next on the list of lenses to be looked at)? Of course the problem with this is that the 28 becomes my go to lens, meaning my clients will see wide images on location (most of which will be too wide to be good) and fall in love with them so much so they would not accept the cropped versions.
