I would like to free up some cash and decided to do a little lens musical chair game….
I barely use my 85LII so I decided I could use the money to purchase a ‘cheaper’ L prime and use the spare cash for some other goodies. I RARELY shoot at f1.2 anyways, so the lens is just sitting collecting dust.
I already have a 35L to cover the wider range, and use a 24-70 for most of my day to day photography, but would like a prime for the longer range. I used to own a 50L but I found it a bit too wide on a FF body. The 85 in essence has a perfect FL, but at such a steep price, I feel like I’m just wasting my money by letting the lens sit around in my closet.
My question to my fellow POTNers is which one of the above (or another medium-long range prime) would you choose as a replacement….
I’m using a 5DIII if it makes a difference in any way…. My main prime subjects are my kids and other family members, and people in general.
Thanks in advance for any input.
