Would it be dumb to sell my 50mm 1.4 and 35mm 2 and buy a 24-70mm 2.8L?

Or Does anyone have a sigma verson?

Talk sence into me before I do somethign stupid
well a 24-70 is a nice lens, and fast glass is always a plus. I guess you have to figure out what the usage will be? To most people a 24-70 zoom 2.8L IS fast glass, however when your comparing it to the other 2, it's not. BUT, in return you will gain the flexibility to shoot on the run with the zoom lens, not be switch lens' around all the time. Then there's the cost to own verses the cost of keeping the old glass. Only you can decide that answer.

I, personally, don't like prime lenses just for the same reason Jim explained. Granted the 1.4 would be nice, I'd opt for the zoom over the 1.4 any day. But this is just my preference.

Keep the 50 1.4, but sell the 35 2 and buy the zoom.

But that is just me.

oooo thats a nice spin! I really like Fast Glass! But the zoom will give better overall coverage, sad to say.

Yeah, as Brian said, I would keep the 50. the 50 is by far my favorite lens. And there is times when you dont want a huge lens hanging off of your camera.
