50 f/1.8, followed by the canon 85 f/1.8, then of course the 135l. Now that the magical faerie dust is settling I think a lens between the 50 and 85 range will be my most used "magical" lens.

I'll through in that before today my budget was set for absolutely no more than $3200 for any gear purchase. Then browsing through the Keh website I stumble across a 50 f/1 for $3200. I really want an 85l and 50l but I reeeeeaaaaaaalllllllll​y want that 50 f/1 to have with my 50 f/1.4. I know the f/1 is a specialty lens but oh what a lens.

My sister, the professional baker and cake decorator once told me that my camera takes great pics. My reply was that I thought her oven baked great cakes.:lol:

The 24-70mm II 2.8 is not the first lens that made me say wow, but it is the lens that makes me say Wow every time I shoot with it.

The first was the 50 f/1.8 Mk1... Actually on 5D2 my Samyang 35mm + 85mmf/1.4 are my WOW lenses, using them wide open or at f/2. In another category the TS-E 24mm II but I'm still learning...

Sigma 35 1.4. I already knew what I was getting in to with the canon 135mm f2 so I wasn't blown away. The 35 1.4 was such a huge improvement over my 50 1.4 that I was amazed. I was not expecting that kind of performance and lack of AF issue (only need +2 MFA).
