Yes, I'm a Nikonian, but the concept is still the same.

I love all of my primes: 24, 35, 85 135. Each have their own place for my needs.

I left out the 50 in my kit, because I just abhor the 50mm focal length... hehehe

But, really, you can't go wrong with any of them.

For me personally, the 50 and 85 are too close together. I'd lose the 50, and pick up a 35.

I've thought about that as well. The 35 and 85 in my bag will let me shoot 90% of the shots I'd want to take.

I am liking 35L on FF. 35L with 85L or 135L would be nice.

I love both my 100mm 2.8 L and my 135L. I like longer lens, that is just my person preference.


I want lenses more than diamonds.

That is exactly my plan when I go FF next week...considering that the 35L would be wide enough for me and the 85 would act like my 50mm on my crop. :D

I'd suggest the 35L. It's sharp, not too wide and not too long. Just right. Sweet bokeh.

Are you getting the 5d mark 3?
