Bringing back my question, I still debate upgrading my 50mm f.14, but now there is a Sigma 1.4 that may surprise...

I have 35/50/135, though the 50mm is the Canon EF 1.4

I'm waiting to see the January announcement before deciding, but the Sigma seems a good bet

I had both the 17-40 and 70-200 F4 non-is and sold them to get my primes.

If it were me, I'd get a 70-200 or 17-40(16-35) just to be a little bit flexible before I get an 85.  Anyway, you know what you need most.   ;)

Having FF with 35L, 50 1.5 and 135L, I'm thinking in:
1) selling the 50mm 1.4 and buy the 50L
2) buying the Sigma 85 1.4
3) buying 85L (more difficult due to the money involved)

Anyone had a similar debate?

If you're studying Szarkowski's The Photographer's Eye, you are already demonstrating more discernment than most.

The Nature of Photographs, by Stephen Shore, is almost a companion or sequel to Szarkowski. Two books by Robert Adams will inspire you: Beauty in Photography and Why People Photograph. Try Szarkowski's Looking at Photographs as well. Then, if you want to challenge yourself, pick up Susan Sontag's On Photography and Roland Barthe's Camera Lucida.

All of these books are short, but contain lifetimes of lessons. Each can be read over and over again and each time you will learn something new. And, not a single one talks about f-stops, ISO, noise, bokeh, crop factor, or any of the other drivel that bogs people down. They are all about vision and understanding this fascinating and addictive craft.

Wonderfull advice!

I would only add that photography books without text " help you further your understanding of photography"!
I go through Martin Parr's books over and over.

I bought the 35L and the Gary Fong LightSphere when my daughter was born and it's my home kit.
Outside I use the 135L, but I'm thinking in buying the 85mm to complete

Nice shot, I see heavy vignetting though. Full Frame?

It was intentional (Post Production). But yes, 5D II

I have 35mm f1.4, 50mm f1.4 and 135mm f2.

I'm thinking on buying a 85mm

85mm f1.8 is also a possibility
