When you're shooting for pay, you'll have limited opportunity for "creative envisioning"... You have to get the shot you're getting paid to get. Period. So first you need the lens to do the paid work, then you can get the lenses you enjoy playing around and envisioning with later, with the profits you made from the paid work.

Fast zooms are almost a necessity for a lot of types of event photography. Or a brace of primes if you have time to swap lenses. Having two cameras helps. And combining FF with 1.6X helps leverage your lens kit, too.

i guess in that sense i have lots to learn about what i need. and thats exactly why ill be maintaining 2 bodies in the future.

thanks for all the inputs so far everyone. really helps with getting me to look at what i need.

good to hear that. could i know if you trashed any photos because they had the purple fringing problem? hear thats one of the main things that plagues this lens.

other than that, i guess overall the overwhelming opinion here is to get the 35L asap (which i probably will once i confirm if im comfortable with it) and save up for the future.

I never owned the 85 1.8 but a tog lent me one during an event and I was happy to use it and the pictures came out really good. I even think about getting one just for the fast AF and the good performances :)
