I had the 24-105 on my 6d for a few shots and realized I just didn't care for them.
The 24-105 is great aa walk around lens and a field lens, but not over my zeiss for fun shots/portraits shots... narrow depth of field is easily as versatile as a zoom.

broke out the planar 50mm 1.4 & lightsphere at my house..

I then went to my sister in law's house and just brought over the zeiss with no flash.. great shots with low lighting!

I've been really digging the Nik color effex 4 as of late. fun stuff

Heya,

Very nice, love the way everyone stands out thanks to that narrow depth of field.

Very best,

I'm also finding that I prefer the shots I get with primes over zooms. Those fast apertures and related shallow DoF is really something magical. I get more shots with the zoom but less of them are worth having. Oh, and the zooms are heavier. These days I'm using:

24 f/2.8
50 f/1.4
85 f/1.8
135 f/2
200 f/2.8

Instead of
24-105
70-200

And a Zeiss 35 f/2 just for fun. ZE 50 f/1.4 is on the way!

It's a great lens, loving that 3D pop it delivers!

Heya,

Yeap, I absolutely adore primes. I don't bother with my zooms anymore. I'm slowly building primes. I'd rather carry a 20 lb backpack of lenses and get the shots I want, then use a zoom that is slower. I also am not willing to pay $6k for a lens just to have a zoom with telephoto and F2. I'd rather have separate primes. Plus, easier to replace if I bust em.

Very best,
