Conflicted with lens choices. Seeking advice.

So let me start by showing my current kit.


Canon 24-70L 2.8 II

Canon 85 - 1.8

Canon 50 - 1.4

I shoot portraits, street photography, and indoor sports mainly.

Also enjoy shooting indoor family events.. would also like the option to capture some good landscape images, as I do plan on traveling soon.

I've recently found myself a bit bored with the 24-70, as it doesn't create the dreamy effect of the other 2 primes.

I have been looking into the newer sigma 135 1.8 Art lens for quite some time and am really wanting to pull the trigger.. but I'm also looking at the 70-200 IS II, given the versatility and ability to achieve similar results as the 135. (from what I have read at least)

Additionally, I have been eyeballing the canon 35L 1.4 II..

Ideally, I'm thinking of having a future setup as follows, moving toward a trinity of primes:

Canon 35L 1.4 II

Canon 50 1.4 (First lens ever shot with, why get rid of it? On the back burner though.)

Canon 85 1.8

Sigma 135 1.8 Art

Is this a decent setup with the 5DMK4, would you switch up or add anything into the mix?

I would love to hear what you guys have to say, also new to the forum!

Disregard budget please. Thanks in advance everyone!
