depends on what you have now.

personally, I would pick the glass (not necessarily better) like 50 1.2 L since i already have the other quality lenses plus the strobes

From what you've said you're doing okay on the lighting aside from the annoyance of recycle time... Why not pick up a battery pack and a maybe 50/1.4? Put whatever is left over from the $1200 and the money you would have spent renting the 50/1.2 towards buying the 70-200 when you can.

Yeah but at $30-$50 a pop I could have 3 for 4 for max a couple of hundred and plenty left over for glass too :)

Lighting for me. 2/3 of my lenses are f/4.

Both actually. Cheap LED video lights off eBay and some cheap LED DIY worklights from a hardware store.

I voted lighting. 1.8 glass isn't expensive unless you have a Zeiss name tag on you, and I'll take lighting with inexpensive 1.8 or 1.4 glass over expensive 1.4 or very expensive 1.2 options everytime :)
