Sell 24-70L for primes?
Apr 27, 2012

I'm a Dad with 7 and 10 year olds, and I do a little pro work on the side. A few portraits, some real estate, and some sports. Otherwise I am all about family photography. Current gear is:

5D3
17-40L
24-70L
70-200II
35L

Since getting the 35L almost a year ago, I've barely touched the 24-70. It seems so big and clunky now. It's fetching a good price on ebay probably because it's gone from B&H. I'm thinking of selling it and getting an 85/1.8 and pocketing the difference. Anyone done something similar? Got some 85/1.8 samples you can share?

Thanks.
