A friend of mine has a NIKON AF-S DX 35mm F/1.8G lens and I would like to purchase something (at least) equivalent for my Canon, if possible at a similar price.
As I understand it, while 35mm still counts a "normal" lens for the Nikon D90, for my Canon 40D, it would be a tad too long. Something around 30mm would probably be more appropriate, right?
If looked at the following models:
- SIGMA 30mm F/1.4 EX DC HSM for Canon: sounds very good, but more then twice as expensive.
- CANON EF 28mm F/1.8 USM: maybe too short? Same price as SIGMA.
- CANON EF 28mm F/2.8: same price as Nikon 35mm lens, but only F/2.8.
- CANON EF 35mm F/2.0: too long? Slightly more expensive as Nikon but only F/2.0.
It seems that an equivalent Canon lens will be around twice as expensive as the above Nikon. Is this correct? Or did I overlook something?
