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

Just like it says. I have both. Just wondering if I should sell the 50 and get some other lenses. Or continue on until I have all zeiss lenses.

Only reason I see to keep the 50 is for the 1.4 when I need it. Problem is at 1.4 dof is so shallow, I almost have to go to 2.8 anyways.

I guess it's also smaller too. So that's another reason.

IMO, a normal lens compliments a zoom better than be a substitute for it unless you also get additional primes to cover wider angles. With 24-70, the significance lies in 24-50mm FL which can be crucial.

The 50/1.4 may have very shallow DOF but can be quite useful when light gets really low or the subject farther (when DOF increases).
