I take photos of many things including portraits, landscape and events. I currently have a 35mm prime lens and am looking at both a 50m and 85mm (Canon L lenses). The problem is that I don't think I can afford all three.

Question... If you could only have one or two, which one of these three would you own, keeping in mind that I already have the 35mm and would take a small loss if I sold it.

Does it make sense to have the 35 and 85 and not the 50??

What do you think?

85, no doubt

I double checked my usage of all lenses and I found I prefer 35 plus a 85 than simply using 50.
