Changing a 24 l II for a 35 L
Mar 20, 2011


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.


Mr. President, I'm not saying we wouldn't get our hair mussed. But I do say... no more than ten to twenty million killed, tops. Uh... depended on the breaks.
