You know, if you were going to nail me down I would say that the 35mm would be the more useful focal length.
But I just keep thinking about that IQ that comes from the 24II

The 35 would be the one that I think I would find more useful.
Maybe they'll be upgrading the 35 to a version II soon.

edit....

I just realized what I should do.....maybe.
As I have two brand new T2i's (maybe a few thousand clicks in each) and a 15-85 and the other ef-s lenses like the 18-55, 55-250 and 60 2.8 macro I could sell all that and get a great prime or two.

Hmmmmmmmmmmmm

Move to all full frame and get two new primes? Sounds like a great idea to me!

Rent both of them and see.....the 35 might be the right lens for me, but feels funny to you...you should naturally gravitate to one of them

Just dial your 24-105 to 24 and 35 and see which you like better. Any image quality between the 24L and 35L is negligible so to make a decision base on that makes no sense.

I agree with 90c4. Take some gaffers tape (or some other tape) and fix the lens at 24mm and do not remove the tape for two days and go shooting. Do the same with the 35mm. After 4 days you will have some ideas what you might like...

I have both and I find I don't use the 35L much nowadays

I generally use the 50L when I would normally use the 35L (50L is not as good a lens optically, but the background blur is much better)

The 35L is not wide enough for me (given I only use it when 50L is too long)

for me, i've had the 35L and found that for landscape it wasnt wide enough which is why I sold it and bought the 24L II. But at times as a walk around I feel the 24L may be a bit too wide which at times makes me want the 35L but for that I use my 50L. At times I want the 35L even though I know I really dont need it.

I found myself at the local camera shop yesterday seeing if a trade or something was doable.
I'm going to purge the good ef-s lenses and a t2i.
15-85
60.2.8
55-250
That ought to get me close to the..........drum roll please.

24L II

I want the optics from that lens.
Keep an eye out on the sell forum if any of that interests you.

I feel exactly the same way. I cannot justify 24/35/50 either. To me the 35 is the most useful and very practical but its not dramatic wide like the 24 and it does not give the separation/background blur like the 50L. Maybe a 24-70II is a better option but the primes are just more fun.

I want to like the 35L but I'm having the same problem with this focal length and it doesn't matter if t's FF or crop. I think it probably time to sell the 35L and let someone else enjoy it.

Do you find that it front focuses?
I saw some comments about that.
