I am a wedding photographer, my lens lineup is 50L, 85L, 100L, and 70-200is2, The issue I have is I love my 50L, its amazing, but im need something wider, and funds are tight,, so my two questions are

How does 24L2 compare to 35L

Should I trade 50L for 35L for better coverage.

thank you all!


5DIII, 5DII, 50L, 85L, 100L, 135L, 70-200L IS II.

You definitely need something wider for formals, environmental portraits, receptions, etc. Might look at a 50/24 or 50/35 trade or sell it outright then look at them. The new 24-70 MkII might be interesting but will be expensive.

What about the 24-70L mk1, or would you rather stick to primes?
