Anyone sold his 50 Art after he bought a 85 Art ? Difficult to sell 50 Art :(

The 50 Art is only a few steps back with the 85mm, it seems a bit obsolete to keep it when you have both ?
In the past I had the 35 Art + 85 1.2L MKI, this is the more common combination.

But as I will do mainly modelshoots and the 50 Art is so perfect for halfbody shots, but on the other hand it's not practical to switch or do shoots with both 50/85 Art.

The only reason I'm doubting to keep the 50 Art is for the better dof/bokeh than the 35mm due to the 15mm difference.
I guess i'll have to check some likewise pics between the 50 Art & 85 Art, and see the difference is minimal, otherwise I won't get it over my heart to sell the 50 Art :)

Some photographers still work with the 50 Art & 85 Art like Manny Ortiz.

There is no such thing as 'difficult to sell'. There is only 'wrong price'.

The difference in angle of view from 35mm to 50mm is about the same than from 50mm to 85mm. You could work with all 3 focal lengths to produce different results.

Due to the weight of these primes in my opinion having all 3 would be a bit redundant. I like the 35 + 85 combo the most. For video work I love instead the 50mm FL.
