Re: 50 and 24-70 zeiss, does it make sense to own both ?

I own both and truthfully, I'm sorry I bought the 50 prime.  In my Nikon days I shot almost exclusively with the 50, and I love the standard lens.  There is no question the IQ on the CZ 50 is incredible.  However, I find that for $1500 it is not worth it, if you have the CZ 24-70.

The CZ 24-70 is just and sharp and I use a flash or bump the ISO if the light is too dark for 2.8. On my A99 the 24-70 is by far my most used lens.

For my type shooting (portraits and landscape) I prefer the 24-70. If I had to do it again I would go with CZ 85 or 135.

Good luck
