Ok, so I sold both my 85 1.8 and 24-70 V1 in order to upgrade both lenses. However, I am now rethinking the move and wondering if any of you have used the 35L and 35Lii? Is there that big of a difference between the two? I am definitely planning on the new 85 1.4, but am up in the air over the 24-70 vs. the 35L. Not trying to compare the two head to head, just wondering if I am going the prime route would the 35L (either version-and yes I have seen numerous threads on the f2 model) be a good fit. I could see using this lens for seniors and portraits. I have the 16-35 f4 and on a recent Europe trip the lens seemed to be at 35mm a good portion of the time.
Not sure if I want to entertain any third party lenses, as I had a bad run with Sigma back in the film days and just decided to stick with canon even though most of the time there is a great cost difference.
