Re: 35mm f2 IS USM or 50mm1.2/1.4

I have all three of these lenses.  My favorite is the 501.2 because I have a very large family with lots of grandchildren & greatneices & nephews & I love to go to family occasions & get candid expressions with shallow dof.  However for cityscrapes & leaving port on a cruise, I really think that the 35/f2 would serve you well.  When I want larger dof & can't depend on lens speed for low light shots, is comes to the rescue, which is why I bought the 35/f2is.  When I am outside during the day with several moving grandchildren, I use 35/f1.4.  They are all excellent & from what I hear the Sigma is stellar.  I don't think you can go wrong with any of these.  Bab
