If you shoot weddings, I wouldn't get rid of the 24-70. I agree with previous posts that all L primes are good, and you need to pick the one that best meets your needs. The 85L is a specialty lens because the focus is slow, and a little difficult to get the DOF right with such wide aperture choices. I don't own the 50L, but I'm assuming it's similar to the 85L. The 85L would be a good portrait lens though, particularly on a 1D4.
Agreed. Got to have a med range zoom for events and weddings, I would want to cut that corner.. 85L does not seem to fit your use or if it does the 85 1.8 might suit it better.
