Now that I have both 35 & 50 Art i'm thinking of selling my 35 Art (even if it's that good).
The 50 Art is only 2 steps behind for 35mm and the bokeh is better.

I'm interested in a Tamron 24-70 2.8 VC or a Sigma 24-105 f4 OS, purpose would be event photography of models, so the zoom seems more interesting.
Although I saw in an outdoor workshop of Frank Doorhof that he mainly used his 70-200.

Some say the 70-105 range of the Sigma also gives a flattering bokeh to compensate not being f2.8 and the 24-105 is also used a lot in studiophotography.
Although i'm used to fast lenses, if the bokeh difference is minimal I would opt for the f4 for once :)

I tried a copy of the Sigma 24-105 and it was a really nice lens. In the end, I didn't keep it because it was just too heavy as an f/4 walk-around. Of course, the Tamron will be about the same weight. I sold my heavier lenses and opted to go with lighter weight options by getting f4 zooms and relatively fast primes. I think I also prefer Canon lenses over the Sigma and Tamron counterparts.

For event photography the Tamron 24-70 2.8 would be great, just be on the lookout for quality issues with that lens. Several people on here, including myself, have returned the lens due to quality control issues. My issue just was not sharp as it should have been, possible focusing issue. I ended up getting the Canon 24-70 2.8 ii

I am waiting for the next 24mm to come out, before I will think of selling my 35Art. Right now the 35 is good for low light indoor events. And I use the 35 with the 85 as a pair.

OP,

Having an f/2.8 zoom really improves versatility in your tool box.

I see a calling for a UWA and mid tele zoom.

Stretch your budget and get the 24-70Lmk2....."variable" prime in one lens :)

Yes with the 24-70 2.8LII I would have the 24-35-50 primes all in 1 lens, but no f1.4 and I like to have 1 halfbody fast prime wider than the 85 1.2L.
In past I allready had the Tamron 24-70 2.8 VC, very sharp lens coming very close to the L for a way cheaper price. I sold it as I switched to the 35 Art, but now having the 50 Art it would be a great supplement.

Yes all Sigma Arts seem big & heavy, also the 35 - 50.
The 50 has bigger diameter of glass and makes me think of the 85L :)

I read a lot that the 35 is more interesting for people with crop camera's, in a poll I saw a 70% vote for the 50 Art on FF.
