So you would believe that a 24L or 35L is somewhat a waste on a crop ?
You won't be using the edges of the glass, just the center portion that projects on the sensor. Are there any other fast primes like these that have great center optics, but less than stellar outer optics? If so, then there would be reason to consider what you could do with any cost savings going to a different lens. If there are no other prime equivalents, then no, the Ls would be the choice.
Is your goal to have a collection of L glass, or the best value for the money for the entire system you are putting together, lenses and crop body, so that the recipients of your photos are very happy with what they get?
I know many people that go out and spend a ton of money on top-end sports cars, then refuse to race that car or even speed over 10mph, they slow down in the cloverleafs, etc. They bought the car because it makes them feel good, they think it makes them look good, but they never really use that car for the potentials they just paid for. They are not wrong, it is just a different way of looking at things.
