Well with a 35L/85L II combo I felt owning a 50L is just a tad redundant and got rid of it....but some of you are tempting me to get this back in my collection.
P.S. you will be doing me a favor if you tell me it is redundant and totally unnecessary.
It would be redundant in your prime setup. You chose the 35mm as your standard lens, having a 50mm isn't needed.
my sigma 35 and 85 are my main goto lenses now oh also the 135 f2L for more reach
these are my holy trinity of primes
A little bit different take on this...
I have the 35mm f/1.4L II at the wide end (not super wide, I know) and at the long end, I have the 100mm f/2.8L Macro and the 70-200 f/2.8L IS II. I really want the 135mm f/2 at some point, but I'm already pretty well set at the long end for now. I used the 50mm f/1.2 for a weekend wedding not long ago and LOVE it! There is a profound difference between my 35mm f/1.4L II and the 50mm f/1.2L. The 35mm is bleeding edge sharp! It has beautiful color and can give a nice 3D pop to images. However, it is NOT dreamy like the 50mm. The 50mm f/1.2L seems to give a much more artistic, moody affect to the images. Of course, I don't think I shot it stopped down any more than maybe f/1.8... and most were wide open at f/1.2. I was lucky that the copy I had required ZERO micro-focus adjustment. As soon as I can afford it, I will be getting the 50mm f/1.2 and I think it will complement my 35mm nicely.
