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

I have both. Picked up the 50mm recently. IMO the 50mm gives you a slightly better IQ and about 2 stops of light for those indoor shots. I wanted to shoot my moving baby, indoor, at <3200 iso without flash and that extra stop or two of light let me shoot at a faster shutter speed which increase my keeper rate.

In hindsight, I feel the upgrade wasn't worth the $1500 as an addition to the 24-70z.
