I have the Sigma 50 and a 135L. They are both amazing on a 5Dmk2. I shoot portraits and they are both awesome at delivering sharp images with a nice creamy bokeh background. They are both in your budget.

looking at your gearlist, I'd say sell the T2i, 18-55 IS, Nifty 50

Get a 17-40, Sigma 50, and if you can afford it either 100L or 135L if you go w/ used prices you may be able to swing it.

If you don't wanna sell your crop stuff, grab a 17-40 and a Sigma 50. You'd have pretty much everything covered. You can do everything you want with a good 50.

I really like the 35L on the 5DII
The 135 at f2 is sweet but I like the 100L because of the IS though.

I'll get 35L rather than 135L 1st:
35L can also use for T2i, and 135L is bit long with crop.


Canon 5D3 + Zoom (EF 17-40L, 24-105L & 28-300L, 100-400L II) & Prime (24L II, 85L II, 100L, 135L & 200 f/2.8L II; Zeiss 1,4/35)
Sony α7r + Zeiss 1,8/55 FE

he's shooting portrait most of the time. the 135L on his 5D2 will do better than a 35 on either FF or crop

Start with 85mm prime. Then you will have an idea what focal length you are missing after shooting for while...

He's got the 70-200 f4, granted it's not fast.

I owned and used in the 900 to 1500$ => Sigma 24F1.8+ Canon EF 50F1.4+ Canon 135F2.0 .... 85F1.8 could be interesting too, but DOF range is much larger with 135L2.0 and you can plug a TC1.4XII quite easily ...
