Markitos, don't apologise for going against the grain I know the 35L is another well-renowned lens and who knows, one day I might add it to my collection. But for now, I have spent enough money!
I hear that. Truthfully, I think you will enjoy the 50 very much on the 5DII... I'm just against canned, coverall answers, since in my example, even though I liked a 50mm lens for some types of photography, I didn't find it optimal for my style of portraiture. For me, I either need something longer, or a wider lens with a shorter MFD to get the framing that I like.
