Just sold my Tamron 24-70 2.8 VC as I'm not so into basic standardzooms (and the reverse counterclockwise zoom had an amateuristic feel)
For the rest this lens was the perfect price/quality standardzoom, but i'm more into 'speciality primes'.
I bought the Tamron for a wedding, but that was for once, before I had the 35 1.4 Art.

Normally I would rebuy the Sigma 35 Art, but I don't feel like wanting to rebuy it (I have the 50 1.4 Art which is better for portraits).
Anyone has no 24-... zoom or 35mm ?

I don't know if I would miss this (I have the Canon 16-35 f4L IS also if I need wider)

Heya,

You have those focal ranges in your 16-35 as you pointed out, so more pertinent it seems that your question is more along the lines of having a wide prime with fast aperture or not.

It depends on what you're using them for. You mentioned your 50mm is good for portraits, but not much else is mentioned. No idea what you might want to do with wide angles. If you're all portrait, I wouldn't stress having 24mm and 35mm really unless you shoot wide portraits or environment, or have a tight studio space, etc. It comes down to what you want to use them for.

I don't have any 24~XXX standard zooms. I use primes mostly. I have a 17-40 mostly for the 17~20~24mm side of it (and because I typically stop down to F8, F11, etc when using it). Other than that, I use a 35mm, 50mm and 90mm prime trio for the rest of what I mostly do. My only other zoom is a 150-600 because I couldn't afford at 400 F2.8 at the time.

Very best,

Well yes i'm preparing to switch to fashionshoots, in past I used the 35 1.4 Art for environmental fashionshoots of the model with background.
Still i'm planning modelshoots in combination with modern & old architecture, stairs,...
That's why i'm doubting if I would use the 16-35 f4L IS for this (instead of the 35 1.4 in past) + the 50 for halfbody and 85 or 70-200 for closeups.

Maybe I should quit that combination of models & architecture and only focus on the model.
I'm still not used taking much closeups of models as normally I shoot abandoned and modern buildings....

I have the Tamron 24-70 and it never came out of the case in the last 3 weddings I shot. After the initial purchase, I did use it for a few weddings, but slowly found that I usually had a better option in my bag. I now feel like I only use the lens for outdoor events where I'm taking candid or group shots. Even then, since purchasing the cheapy 50 STM, I'm using the Tamron less and less for those situations. Overall, I haven't sold the lens because it really is a great piece of glass, and like you, I almost feel like I need a 24-70 zoom although that sentiment is fading.

As far as the 35mm, I would have a hard time being without it. I actually like the 50mm focal length better, but my 35 Art is great for indoor, low-light situations where space is limited. I also have the 16-35 f4, but I wouldn't consider it a viable replacement for a 35mm prime.

I hardly use the 24-70 on my sony, BUT it does have limited use. When it's time to take a lot of group shots, it's really good for that.

On it's own, you'll get quality that most would be extremely happy with (save the extremely picky photographers :-D)

if you ever have a second shooter, it's a brain dead simple setup that can get good results. When shooting events, the 24-70 is my least used lens, but it can be pretty handy. Sometimes when I dont have it, I have to stitch group shots at times, far from ideal.

I think I'm going to rebuy the Sigma 35 Art, the only thing that stops me is having the 50 1.4 Art allready, it's very close.
The 24 Art would give more distortion for environmental modelshoots in comparison with the 35 Art.

Now and then I also do events (model election finals), the feet don't need to be on the picture always, sometimes casual groupshoots are a bit boring.
I also do partyshoots in darker clubs with fluo lightning, I think i'm going to rebuy the compact Canon or Sigma 15 2.8, had both in past and those ones are perfect.

For the moment I have the following new wide setup in mind :

-Venus Optics 12 2.8 Zero-D
-Sigma 15 2.8
-Sigma 35 1.4A

Instead of the Tamron 24-70 2.8VC & Canon 16-35 f4L IS.
