Replacing my set of 5 lenses with 2 Sigma Art lenses

    Ok so the time has come to ditch the bottle glass in my kit and get 2 good lenses.

    Currently have
    18-55 kit lens
    24mm pancake
    50mm kit lens
    10-18 lens
    70-300 kit lens

    I’d like to replace them with:
    Sigma 18-35 F1.8 Art
    Sigma 50-100 F1.8 Art

    I don’t do any work that warrants a 70-300 for example. My focus is on portrait and product photography with the occasional landscape thrown in for fun.

    Thoughts?

    Have to agree. Out of all lenses I have gone through in my LBA and phasing, the pancakes are the ones I regret getting rid of. Selling them usually yields no significant economic gains or ‘returns’, so keeping them on some selica gel in the cupboard for a year or two, does no harm… they always come out again 🙂
