Don't give us much information. What do you seek to shoot?

How about 24l and 1d4 or 35l and 5d3?

Otherwise I'd choose 35+1d4

50mm is called standard for a reason.


the 50L on any camera is just magic(opinion).

you are painting images with it.

i have the 35L, 5D2/1Ds2

i could get a 50L to pair with my existing bodies
OR
get a 1D4 to pair with my 35L

1D4+35L pros:
short MFD
high ISO performance

50L+1Ds2 body pros:
faster lens at 1.2 but stuck at lower ISO's due to 1Ds2 (i usually use the 5D2 with other lenses)
cheaper cost but risk of focus shift/unsharp SOOC

why do you need a 1d4 and a 35L to shoot family/kids?

well, i don't "need" it, but the idea is to get almost the same perspective as the 50mm focal length with the 1.3 crop of the 35mm.

i find the 35 a bit wide most of the time.

Mine is magic on my 5DII.

Vivid colors. Sharp. Still learning the lens, but already love it.

not part of the options, and i already have a portrait lens.
and it will one day be redundant to a 70-200 II

The 85L is no way redundant with the 70-2. You're talking the difference of 2 1/3 stops.

at 85mm ONLY.

Additionally, people WAY overhype the 'risk of soft images and focus shift'


Only shoot wide open.

Yes, because it's a PRIME, not a zoom. The keg is one of the sharpest lenses wide open and just makes backgrounds disappear. OP has a 35L. 35mm and 50mm is pretty similar. 35mm and 85mm is not. I think he'd have more use for the 85L than the 50.

Why would you need a 1D4 for this? Its quite obvious you've been itching for a 50L. I say just buy the lens and see if it works for you.
