Well, I rented the 50/1.4 as I said I would.

So my plan is buy the 85/1.8 and make it my first prime. I will carry it along with the 16-35LII and 24-105L.

After doing a few shoots, I will see where my focal lengths are averaging out and then make another decision on a prime. Either I will wait for Canon to release a 50 1.4 USM II this year or maybe go with the Sigma 50/1.4 IF I notice that I am using 50mm frequently. Other primes in consideration are the 35L and 135L but I will need to save a while before getting them.

Great choice! I think the 85 1.8 is more fun than the 50mm length, also. When you're deciding on the next prime take a look at the Sigma 30mm 1.4. I use it much more than I do my 50. Now we'll be waiting for some new shots from you with the 85.

The trick is to get that effect without making it obvious that it was faked. It's currently very obvious.
