Changing a 24 l II for a 35 L

Hello,

I shoot with a 5DII, and last year I purchased a 24 f1.4 L II; I thought a lot before buying it, because at the time I was already tempted by the 35 L. In the end I decided for the wider lens: I thought it could have been more useful.

But now, owning also a 16-35 II and a 24-105L, I found I miss a fast 35 for general/street shooting; I know I have the 24-105 and the 16-35 both covering the 35 focal, but I also know that the 35 L 1.4 is another thing.

I'm happy with the 24 L, which is amazing, but I think the 35 L would be more useful: the 24 is too wide for an 1.4 lens.

Would you exchange it for the less wide (and older) 35L?

Thanks for your comments.

Cheers
