I currently have the 24-70 2.8L lens. I plan on buying the EF 14mm 2.8L
For $600 you could get something like the EF-S 10-22. If you need the f/2.8 aperture below 16mm, there is the Tokina 11-16/2.8.
Spending $2000 to get a 14mm lens for a 1.6X body is really kind of nuts. There are several choices that will be cheaper.
Heck, you could just buy a used 5D and use the 24-70 on it for about the same FOV, and save $1000.
the 85mm 1.2 lens for portraits / weddings etc. and a few other lenses BUT before i did i started to wonder if this is overkill for the camera i have.
Spending the extra money to go for an 85L vs. the 85/1.8 on a 1.6X sensor body is again starting to pay for stuff over and over that a single body change could cover instead.
The 85L is one stop faster than the 85/1.8 (and 1 and 1/3 stop faster than what would be comparable on FF, the 135L). But why pay for this stop on several very expensive lenses when a single investment in a FF body would get the same low light ability and DOF for less.
Not everyone needs a FF body, but when you start looking at a bunch of really expensive L primes on a 1.6X body, you might find slower lenses on FF to be ultimately cheaper.
You could even consider some FF body with a 70-200/2.8 IS instread and thus gain IS which would be very nice to have for weddings.
Shooting weddings is going to be a hobby then? I shoot other stuff for fun, but I'm not a huge 'people' person I guess.
