Re: 35, 50 or Both?

I think it is largely a preference thing. What field of view do you prefer? You can use the 24-70 at each focal length to see what works for you. Also the 35 will be better if sharpness is key to you, the 50 if you like that “magical” look that the 85 1.2 has.

Also think of lens pairings. When I just use one lens I go with the 50. For people I often go with a 35 and 85 pairing but for landscape I like the 24tse and 50 combo. Pairing a 50 and 85 might not be enough difference, but 50 and 135 would work well. The 14 could likely go with either of these lenses.

long story short I ended up with both because I like to vary lens combos, but if I chose one I’d pick the 50 based on my shooting preferences.
