If you had the 50 1.4 Art and need wider : buy a 35 Art or 24-105 f4 ?

I currently have a 50 1.4 Art, 85 1.2L and 70-200 2.8L II.
I'm looking for a more wider lens than 50mm for outside model photography (model + environment).

Would I opt for a 35 1.4 to be able to go to the 1.4 for creative effects/lowlight possibility
Or a 24-105 f4 (L or Art) ?

I know the 24-105 is great for studiowork at f8 or higher, but possibly the f4 is less flattering for outside modelpictures, are there any outside portraitpictures available with the 24-105 f4? The f4 makes me doubt...

For portraiture, definitely the 35. I have both it and the 24-105; the 24-105 is for when I want a general purpose lens, not for when I want portraits. F4 at wider than 50mm is not great in terms of DOF.

I do have 24 105 and just purchased the old sigma 50 1.4, I still feel the need of the 35 1.4 in low light conditions and bokeh for portraits. here is a shot of my 24 105 with a crop body @f4. Not maybe the best but at least you can have the scenario outdoors when with it.

I was going to suggest the 16-35/4 but I see you already have it. Voted for the Siggy 35 then.

Well 16-35 f4L @ f4 is not the same as the 35 1.4 Art @ f1.4 :)
I bought the 16-35 f4L for landscapes (perfectly sharp in the corners), I don't think this has any use for portraiture :)

And for indoor events withouth flash the 35 1.4 is probably also recommended <> 24-105 f4

I'd either get a 28/1.8 or wait for the 24mm Art. To my eyes the difference between 35mm and 50mm is too miniscule.

I don't think so, on the wide side 15mm makes quit a difference for having background/no background.
24mm isn't that wide either and gives too much distortion, this isn't really for portraits, than i'd rather use my 16-35 f4L if I need widest :-D

I've had the Sigma 35 A1 for about a month and have not put my 24-105 on one time since then. Getting good subject separation with DOF at f/4 35mm or 40mm is just not happening in most shots. The art lens is insanely sharp and has been been nailing focus for me.

I actually rented both the sigma 35 and 50 before buying. I had just about convinced myself to go with the 50 but at the last minute went with the 35 instead. Very happy with the lens.

Don't get the zoom, you'll regret it. :D
