^I am in awe at your skill Marlon. Everything about this image is fantastic to me. The alignment of the row of double posts with the dual beams of light, the long shutter speed, the gorgeous color gradients: It all comes together to form a spectacular standout image. You are the 24-70 II image thread master! :)

x2. I like the gradient from light to dark going left to right.

Hello everyone!
Can you please offer some insight for me?

I'm a prime junkie. 24 50 85 200 L's.
But I've recently picked up some work for a concert series and can really use a zoom.
I am right on stage or first row, so the 24-70ii has become the target of my desire.
I really can't justify owning all of these lenses, if I add the zoom.

I am thinking about selling my 50 1.2, which I use as a toy, for pleasure events... to keep my 85L safe at home (i save it for paid gigs).
I only use my 24L for car events.
Should I consider selling the 24 and 50L's and just go with 24-70Lii and 85L and 200L?
Obviously, it's subjective, and nobody knows for SURE, how to advise others.
But I'm curious if anyone has done something similar to this transition.

Cheers,
Ryan

I did sort of a similar route but did not have the nice lenses you have. I had a 50 1.4 and a 24-105 F4. I had been looking for a landscape lens around the 24mm length for a few years because the 24-105 really sucked at 24mm. A great lens besides that.

I rented both the 24 TSE II and Zeiss 21mm. I figured for the price the TSE's novelty may wear off as I'm really in tinkering a lot. The Zeiss has a bit if moustache dist and with no auto AF a pretty steep price for me. Both very good lenses. I can't remember why I decided not to pursue the 24L.

I held off until the 24-70II came out. The best lens was the TSE and the 24-70 does not compete but it is pretty good for my landscape needs. I sold the 50 and 24-105. Sold my Tokina 11-16 as well as now my FF is my landscape lens. That 50 1.2 is a nice fast lens so you are loosing there. More challenging to work with regarding DOF.

All in all I'm really happy with the move I made. Even though I have not really noticed it as much as I thought I would IS would have made it real sweet.

So as you said I can't give you any advise, just my experience. I hate changing lenses so I'm kinda a zoom junkie although I know better.

This did it for me. 2.8 @ 24mm

nice!

I appreciate you taking the time to reply.

I'm using the 85L for 98% of my paid gigs.
I really don't like be left with the 24 or 50L b/c I like tight. So I really only use them for pleasure.

They are family to me, so I will miss them, but I think I can handle it. ;)

I know what you mean. I hate selling them. I had the 85 1.8 too at one time as well. If I had an unlimited cash flow I would still have the first lens I purchased. Next to the Canon display rack would be my Nikon collection then Leica and so on ;)

Is this lens good enough to justify upgrading from 24-70 mk i ? I heard it is better sharpness wise, however is it visible with 100% size or when printed on photo paper.

Hi Ryan
They both quality must be good. I just considering is Aperture. I love f1.2 when low light.
