Hi guys I am new to the forum, first post right here!
So I just purchased a second hand 5d mk 2, previousinterestigb replaysa 50d. The lenses I have that will work on the 5d are a 50mm and 70-200mm. I'm a little unsure what I want to buy now for my next lens below the 50mm mark. I have max of $1000 to spend and would like to hear your suggestions or favorite lenses below the 50mm range.can be zoom or prime I don't care, just trying to get a few ideas.
My main subjects are portraits and landscapes and just other general subjects. Thanks, hope to hear some interesting replys

This.

Or if you're not opposed to MF, the Samyang 35/1.4 is also worth a look (and would save you money for a second lens ;))

I'd go with the 17-40mm f4L. You won't believe your eyes when you go to 17mm lol

Yes, 17-40L is a good idea to complete your pack; or 24-105 if the 70-200mm is frequently too heavy to take.
