35L! since you mention you'll be selling the 24-105 plus you have no wide angle lens! Did you look into 24L II :))

I have35l and 50 1.4. For what ever the reasons are my 50 1.4 is so sharp even at 1.4

I like 35 for inside with limited space and use 50 when I am outside

50L will have more "pop" to your images due to more background seperation

the images are simply more impressive.

Two different lenses that's capable of producing wonderful images. I personally prefer the 35L over the 50L. Choose based on your FL preference.

I have, but I much prefer it on FF. A better lens for the 7D is the 24L II, IMO of course.

I use my 35L on my 7D at times - it's a great combo.

I wasted my time debating which of these 2 lenses and at the end of the day I found all L primes to be very good so it was really just a matter of FL. The only thing bad about them is you will forever be spoiled by the amazing image quality so you may never want to use anything else.

I use it on both 5D2 and 7D. It's better on the 5D2.
For exclusively 7D, I would choose Sigma 30mm instead.

I could not agree more.

The image quality (sharpness, color, contrast) of L lenses can not be understated, IMO.

I own the 35L and have used the 50L on a number of occasions. Both can produce wonderful images! They have a different look. The 35L doesn't have much perspective distortion, but it's still noticeable compared to the 50L.

For portraits that you can set up and take your time with, the 50L works wonderfully, but every time I've used it, focusing is hit or miss. The 35L is just plain reliable, which is important for events and when shooting fast-moving subjects.

In the end, they're both great, but I give the nod to the 35L.

Ordered the 35L! I really appreciate everyone on this forum for taking the time to address so many. It is really nice to get feedback from actual users, being able to view their work via Flickr or their websites and help them make informed decisions. Alot of talent on this site and very helpful group. I sold my 14L because although a very incredible lens, it was a specialty lens, and I think I will get alot more use from the 35L. Thanks again.
