I'm looking for some opinions or maybe some advice to help me make a decision.
I'm considering buying either the 24L or 35L and can't make my mind up about which will be most useful.
I know I already have lenses that cover both focal lengths, but I want a fast prime (as I am beginning to prefer using primes instead of zooms) with a wider focal length than the primes I already own (excluding the fisheye obviously).
There are a couple of factors making it hard for me to decide though and thats where you guys come in. Those factors are:
- Will the 35 be too close in focal length to the 50 1.4 that I already own to justify spending £900?
- I want to be able to use the lens for portrait work as well as other types of photography, but will the 24L maybe be a little too wide for that purpose, meaning I have to get uncomfortably close to the subject to get decent shots?
