I have the 5D Mark II and 50 f/1.2L and now just picked up a 1DMarkIII. I figured the combination is awesome for just about anything. I love the 50L on both bodies, but I"m ready to buy another lens. I've narrowed it down to the following, based on my shooting style (mostly portraits). This summer, I plan on doing outdoor shots of my active young child, but I also shoot a lot in available light as well--hence, the 50L. Please give me your advice on the proposed setups:
5d Mark II: 50 f/1.2
1d Mark III: 135 f/2
5d Mark II: 50/f/1.2 and 100mm f/2
1D Mark III: 70-200 f/4 IS
Though I'd love to have the 135 f/2 and 70-200 f/4 IS, that is too much right now. I went in to the local camera store to try the 70-200 f/4 IS and 70-200 2.8 IS. I love the 2.8, but wow, that is one heavy lens...more than I would like to lug around. I used to have a Nikon 70-200 f/2.8, and I loved that lens, but I left it at home most of the time because is was too heavy for my liking Also, for low light, I feel the 50 f/1.2 is excellent and I love its hand-holdability. I've heard nothing but great things about the 100mm f/2; the only limiting factor (to me) right now is the fact it is not an "L" lens (sorry, I love the L build quality). How good is the 100mm f/2 for build?
So, given the proposed setups, is ths 50 and 135 the best "all around" setup, assuming some "foot zooming", as I have both full frame and 1.3 crop? Or, setup B, which ultimately sacrifices the 135 f/2 for the 100 f/2 (about $500 US savings).
Sorry for the long post and thanks!
