I added the 50 1.8, and had the 24-70 from the start. I use the 24-70 way more often, but the 50 is great fun. It's an interesting challenge to stick with one focal length.

With the 24-70 F4, I get good results with night photos in the city, but it needed high ISOs and slow shutter speeds. Noise reduction in post processing and IBIS hand held shooting worked well. The 50 F1.8 has quick focusing and faster shutter speeds for similar images -- nice.

Nobody has mentioned shallow depth of field so far.

From Feb 2020,50 F1.8, jpg straight out of the camera:
