I need more advice from the PLA. I have the 35L, 85 1.8 and 135L. Should I get the 50L or sell the 85 1.8 and get the 85L?

In all honesty? Don't worry about it, keep what you've got and be perfectly happy.

My goal is to have the 35L, 50L, and 85L, but the 50 1.4 and 85 1.8 might have to do until I can get all that cash saved up to buy those big L's. So maybe add the 50L now, and then when ready sell that 85 1.8 and get the 85L with some of the proceeds.

Had a quick play around with a Rokinon 14mm f2.8 that I picked up real cheap a week or so ago.
My goodness it's wide! It's watch-out-your-feet-might-be-in-the-shot wide!

I'm tempted to get a Zeiss 35 f/2 or a 35L to go with my 24L II, 85L II, and 135L, but I have to hold off. It's crazy how I went from not understanding why anybody would want a prime lens to not wanting to touch a zoom in only 8 months. I blame the 50 1.4 for getting me started.

Your kit is screaming to get a 135L or a Sigma 50 1.4 if you don't want to go long.

Hello all :)

I have only 3 lenses at the moment, all primes, so I guess I qualify for PLA.

35L, 135L and 50/1.8

While I dream of owning the 24L II and 85L II in the future, my dreams are clouded with thoughts of purchasing the 24-70 and 70-200 f/2.8 IS II as my next two lenses. Mostly because I plan on dabbling my way into wedding photography, and having those lenses gives me basically full coverage and very capable backups as well (35L/24-70 and 135L/70-200). But with wedding photography also comes the need for an additional body. Sure adds up fast!

As much as i wanted to love the 70-300 DO is usm, i failed eventually, it so good in many ways, but also so flawed. So..... It had to go, trading the 70-300 FL for a prime 35mm.
The Carl Zeiss Distagon T*2/35 ZE to be exact, the zoom lenses is dwindeling down. Only one left, but i'm keeping the 17-40:rolleyes:;). Four primes now, one of them manual, where will this end. FF next project? I am a primeoholic,:lol:.

Yes, go full frame. Seriously. You will fall in love with your lenses all over again (and even more so than with a crop). The difference is noticeable!
At least pick up a 5D Mark II, or better yet a Mark III if you can afford it!
