Newborn Lens ?

Postby Christie2007 » Sat Nov 20, 2010 11:28 am

What lens do you gals use the most frequently with newborns? I am debating between a few right now, so I thought I would weigh in and get your opinions.

24mm 1.4L USM II or 35mm 1.4L USM? Or would you recommend something different for newborns? I have a 50mm, but thought something a little wider might be good for smaller spaces. I need help!!

I use a 50mm and I think that works great. I have heard the 35mm is good too. But I have heard about some issues with distortion on the 24mm, so that might be something to keep in mind.
