Wondering what your thoughts may be on this.
I am currently on 1 body (5d3), with 16-35mm v2, 24-70mm v1, 70-200mm 2.8 non IS, 50mm 1.4, and 50mm 1.8 - and I mainly shoot weddings, portraits and some fine art here and there).
First step is obviously to address the backup body situation (considering a 6d, or used 5d3's are popping up, right price may snag one).
once that's done, lenses...
Since I added the 16-35, I have found myself using the 24-70 less and less, favoring either the 16-35 or the 50mm. So the 24-70 may very well end up on ebay. That gives me some options.
Option 1: Sell the 24-70 and the 70-200 for the v2 with IS? I love my 70-200, but, at the long end I do find my keeper rate to be not so good in the 1/60-1/100th SS range. So the Logic there is trade the 2 for the 70-200 IS is basically to increase the keeper rate and give me more flexibility in SS. Is the IQ on the v2 really that much better than the v1? Should IQ even be a factor in the logic? Would you go for that?
Option 2: sell the 24-70 and snag a 50L 1.2? I have heard such mixed reviews about the 1.2, so not to sure if thats the right path.
Option 3: sell the 24-70 and upgrade it to the 24-70V2? It's a pricey switch. Is the IQ really that much better than the v1 or equivalent primes?
Option 4: sell the 24-70 and snag a 135mm f2? That would pretty much abandon the 24-70 range to my 50mm 1.4. For wedding work, do I really need the flexibility of a zoom in that focal range? Uncertain...lol...this is really only an option becasue I really really really want a 135L
I could go on, but then it gets into nutty combinations. As you can see I have given this lots of thought. But, hearing some thoughts from others can't hurt. What are your thoughts on the options above?
