Re: Best choice for first/only prime on 6D FF?

If you already have the 24-70 f2.8 why are get or keep the 24-105? Use either of those as trade bait or help fund your primes. Then look at a 35 (either the Sigma or Canon, but the Sigma is getting excellent reviews) and the Canon 85 f1.8 or 100 f2. I have the 100 f2 and love it. Just an option. Both of those zooms are rather large and heavy and redundant. Selling one could go a long ways towards paying for your primes.

(Personally, I'd keep the 24-105 for the IS but it's ultimately largely a matter of taste).
