Hey guys,

I just sold my old canon kit lenses which I had left after I sold my T2i. I have now 5Dmark2 from a while and I shoot occasionally with 5DIII and FS100.
I have Nikkor AIS lenses: 24mm f/2.8, 35mm f/2.8 and 50mm f/1.4.
I have $1000 in my pocket and I want to add some lens(es) to my bag.

I read a lot, I watched bunch of reviews, but I don't have any idea what would be the most profitable for me at this point.
Should I grab 24-105mm f/4 with its image stabilization? Or maybe a better choice will be Rokinon 85mm f/1.4 which has amazing reviews, plus some other lens?
I like to shoot with manual lenses, but since I shoot mostly with DSLR, maybe I should go for Canon 24-105mm. I know f/4 is little slow, and will probably suck in low light situations, but I shoot mostly during the day, and for low light I have my Nikon babies. I don't have $$ for Canon 24-70mm f/2.8 :/ which I would prefer (or Tamron 24-70mm with IS).

Thanks guys!

Rob

The Rokinon is absolutely lovely. I would suggest just sticking to primes.
