I have loved and used my 50f1.4 on both Crop and Fullframe. I've now gone totally full frame and am looking for a good fast prime to fill the slot... or something else...

My question is - do I go for the 24f1.4II, the 35f1.4.... or neither and get the 24-70f2.8L instead.

I had the 17-55f2.8 on my 7D and used it lots. I've now only got the 24-105f4L IS in that zoom range...

So... do I follow my head and get the zoom, or my heart and get a prime - and if so which one?


There are many great primes. The 50mm L is one of them. Have you checked it out? I have seen some portrait pictures taken with this lens that are simple amazing! But it's about $1,500. Primes have a prohibited price.

The Canon EF 100mm non L f/2.8 macro is amazing also. The L version is twice as expensive. I'm considering the EF-S 60mm that is about $450.00
Canon Person.
