24-105L 50L 85 1.8 135L
I'm having a hard time gelling with my current lineup. I dumped a bunch of money into buying some great glass recently but I seem to be struggling to make it all work for my needs.
I love my primes for the thin DOF and IQ but my 2 year old makes the 135L difficult to use. The 135L has been on my "must buy" list for a long time. Once I got it I took it to the park with Ry. I find with the longer primes it's harder to keep up with her. She runs to and from me so I'm constantly bouncing back and forth trying to keep a certain distance. With my 50 it's much more forgiving in that regard.
I mainly shoot our family activities (zoo, family days and kids activities) and the occasional paid gig (family, engagements and seniors). I'm thinking I need to sell some of this glass and buy something more versatile or a shorter prime than the 135.
Here's what I'm thinking. Sell the 24-105, 85 and the 135 then either do one of the following:
A) keep the 50L and buy 70-200 2.8 IS II so I don't have to keep the same distance from my daughter while at a park. I've read it is a beast and it rivals all primes in terms of IQ. And it has some amazing bokeh at 200mm 2.8. I'd have a 50L and the 70-200 to go along with my 5d3.
B). sell my 50L with the other equipment, start fresh and buy a 35L and a 85L. This would be a nice, compact, simple setup that would allow me to shoot wide apertures and destroy backgrounds.
I've been wrestling with the scenarios for a few days. Anyone had this problem before. I appreciate any advice.
