Hi everyone - thanks for all your input. I guess I'm venturing into primes wanting to not be lazy with my zooms, be more creative and after better IQ in lower light situations, shallower DOF etc. I know I have some great lenses, but I can get some of these lenses at great prices very soon & didnt want to pass up the opporunity.
I guess I was referring more to bettering my street photography, candid people shots (more candid people shots than actual posed portraits), so possibly the 35mm and 85mm would be good options.
Ive heard that there can be issues hand holding the 135mm re sharpness, any truth to that ? Ive read that people go with the 100mm with IS instead, but is this lens primarily for macro (which I dont do a lot)
Also the 85mm 1.2 may not be worth the extra money due to bulk especially when the 1.8 performs nearly as well ?
The 24-70/2.8II is as sharp as it gets. For the photography you're describing, I'd recommend just these two:
Don't buy too many lenses — they'll be a pain to carry around! The L versions of the 35 and 85 are great, but too heavy for general use, especially if you also carry one or more heavy zooms.
