Versatility of 50L...

I am enclosing two recent shots (small versions) from 50L with ND on 1Ds M3. The lens is very versatile, and delivers when needed. The first shot was captured at f/1.4, whereas the second shot was at f/16. These pictures were slightly enhanced in Aperture (no Photoshop).

Now that I have become a "prime-oholic", I am evaluating 35L against 24L II for landscape photography.

Mind of I ask how many stops the ND filter is that you have on your 50L?

I used a 2-stop GND with 10-stop ND (both Lee filters).

Did you use the stacked filters for 12 stops on both of these shots?

I used stacked filters (12-stops) for the ocean shot; the first shot used a 2-stop ND only...

Great, thanks. I actually have a 2-stop ND filter on the way specifically for handheld daylight shots like your first shot. I was worried that it might not be strong enough for what I am looking to do, but your post showed me that a 2-stop filter should be just right, so thanks again.

If you're a prime-aholic and want to shoot landscapes, get a TSE 17L ! :)

Since you already have the 50l, I'd skip the 35l and get the 24l

Based on my experience with 16-35, I have concluded that 24mm is the widest focal length that works for me. Perhaps, it is the result of my extensive work with long portrait lenses :-)

The only thing holding me back is the upcoming 24-70 M2. If it turns out to be as good as my 70-200 II, I will get the zoom; otherwise, I am tilting toward 24L II. There are so many rave reviews about 35L that it makes me wonder if I should have both? Thanks.

My most used lenses are my 24LII and 50L. I would suggest settling on the the 24LII rather than the 35L :)

+1 Same here.

The 24L II compliments the 50L perfectly and the image quality from the 24L II is stunning!

Same. Loving 24 and 50.

Was comtemplating 16-35 but realize that 24 is the widest that works for me. Could be from doing too much portrait work.

Not sure if I want to keep the 24-70. Always promised myself I would get the 24 again after i sold my 24L v1.
