Just looking for opinions on which lens you'd buy between these two if you owned neither and saved up just enough to buy one. The intended purpose would be "hobby art photography" I suppose since I can't really justify the expense for family pictures, travel and so on vs the gear I already have. Basically a splurge purchase.

I currently own the 24-70 f4 and Rokinon 24/f1.4, as far as lenses in this focal length range are concerned.

Assuming you will use on FF camera, buy 24-70mm f2.8 II AND 35mm f2 IS.
