Currently own following for my 70D
10-18mm = wideangle lens for landscape and
18-135mm = general purpose lens
35mm f/2 = low light & indoor lens
Now. I have 3 options. I want another prime.
Canon EF-S 60 f/2.8 USM Macro = for portrait and macro work
Canon EF 50 f/1.4 or hoping for a update 50mm to be release before end of the year = for portrait / bokeh work
Canon EF 85 f/1.8 = Outdoor / bokeh monster
All lenses are about the same price
Which one would you go for
The 35 already does almost everything you're looking to do with it.
However, if you want something longer than 35mm on APS-C, like 50mm (85mm FOV on full frame), then look to the Sigma 50 F1.4. I use two 50's, a Super Takumar 50 F1.4 and a Helios 44-2 (58mm F2). On APS-C they still destroy backgrounds nicely and are very sharp. Sure, they're vintage manuals, but you'd never know the difference unless you need autofocus. Cheap ($35~60). If you want autofocus, Sigma 50 F1.4 is the one to go for here for these prices.
85mm F1.8 is my go to for telephoto portrait work outdoors. Even on APS-C, it's a great environmental lens. Not for indoors really on APS-C, that's where I like the 35 F2 IS.
Because you already have the 35 F2 IS, which really takes care of indoors and short range portrait work very nicely on APS-C, I would probably go for the Canon EF 85 F1.4 for outdoor portrait and general fast telephoto. You've got indoor covered. This will cover outdoor.
The alternative to me would be a Tamron 90mm F2.8 macro. Portrait, macro, everything.
