Please help me to decide whether I should keep 50L or 50/1.4. I am struggling...
I definitely love 50L. I could see its improvement over 50/1.4 easily but the improvement is marginal. The photos taken by 50L have better contrast and slightly better out-of-focus.
What bothers me is the price. The performance/price ratio of 50L is BAD. If I keep 50/1.4, with the extra money I could buy another L lens like 135L or 100L, though I don't want them eagerly right now. I don't care much about the building quality or the weight as I will mainly use this 50mm lens indoor. I mainly use aperture 2.0 indoor to take photos of my daughter. Sometimes I will use larger aperture when the DOF is fine. My camera body is 5d Mark II. Thank you!
I have 35L, 40/2.8, 50L, 50/1.4, 85/1.8, 24-105/4L and 70-200/4L IS. Lenses over 1000g are too heavy for me, so many L lenses are out of my consideration. I mainly take photos of a toddler indoor and sometimes outdoor.
Currently 100L interests me in micro shooting, but that could be another waste of money. I'll only use it to take photos of Legos and something like my daughter's hand. 135L is another superb lens for portrait, but I doubt I'll use it much as I don't use my 70-200/4 often. I could also upgrade my 5dmk2 to 5dmk3, but personally I don't want to invest over 2k on a camera body.
