You didn’t say what “50” you have.. You could have the hundred dollar version, the 400 dollar version or the 1500 dollar version?

I’ll assume for the sake of argument, that you probably have the 1.4, if so, upgrade your 50 to a 1.2. I’ll also assume you’re on a crop body, thereby making your 50mm an 80mm.. So, technically if you’re finding yourself having too tight of shots, I’d say buy a 35mm .. or a 24-70.  That 1.6x factor sucks.. Buy yourself a mk III and a 24-70 f/2.8, 70-200 f/2.8, 50 f/1.2, 85 f/1.2, and a 35mm f/1.4 and be done with it.
