thinking of adding these two lenses to my collection next week, if you are currently using this combo, i would love to hear your input :)

i like to stay with as minimum gear as possible, so i would use the 24 as my wide angle and 50 as standard portrait / everyday lens.

24L + 50 1.4 is how i shoot 90% of my images. I LOVE this combo.

Consider 50L with 24 TSE II...I love both lenses.

I am still learning so I hope you dont mind me asking:

I have 5D MK3 and 24-105L, so what would be the difference in shooting using this lense or prime 24L? If shooting outside and light is good, would the results be that much different between those two lenses?

The 24L and the 50L is a great combo. I tend to lean more towards that over my 35 and 85 combo. Go for it.


Get out and shoot

Aprature and quality. The 24-105 is an f4 while the 24L is a 1.4. More light capability and better glass optically. If you need a general outside walk about lens the 24-105 is great. If you want/need faster glass the 24L is your option.

35 wasn't as wide and my 85 is just too heavy, that my only problem with it, i have got use to its slow AF

The 24-105 has quite a bit of distortion at 24mm

Thanks, that explains... I also have EF35L f1.4 and I think this is great lense especially for indoor shooting. I take a lot of portraits and this lens quite works for me. However, I read a lot about EF85 f1.2 and I am thinking of getting that one as well for portraits. Would I waist my money and perhaps better spend on something totally different, like EF70-200L f2.8 mark II?

If you like shooting with zooms, get the 70-200. If you like fast primes nothing beats the 85L it's in the league of its own

the 24LII and the 50L are my two most used lenses. I shoot with a 5D3, and while a lot of people swear by the so-called trinity of primes (35-85-135), my take on that with the 24-50-85 is way nicer. :)
