Yes, I have decided to get the new 35. My 24-105 can get me out to 24 when needed, in good light

My vote would go to the 24, I initially bought a 35 and loved it initially but as time went on it came out of my bag less and less because it wasn't wide enough.

What type of shooting? Indoors or wide landscape or what?

A little bit of both, indoor family and pet shots and landscape/cityscapes.

I really liked the 24 1.4 II when I had it, especially for indoor family stuff and trips to the museum, aquarium, city/nature walkabout etc. Not only did I get a lot of low light capability for young kids who wont sit still for long, but it was great for environmental portraits. You just have to be careful not to get too close otherwise everyone starts looking like a clown.

35mm always seemed too "middling' for me. I like the idea of specialized purpose lenses rather than general purpose, just seem to get more interesting results. As a hobbyist, I can get away with it and be OK with missing some shots as a result, YMMV.

I currently have a 16-35 f4 IS and 50 1.2 on my 6D. The 100-400 II will be my next lens, but the 24 1.4 II is 2nd in line as a compliment to my 50 (followed by a 135L and a 7DII, lol!).

I like the 35mm f/2 IS. Weight and price make the difference as well as the great IS!
