I still haven't decided which lens to buy next. I currently have the 50 1.4, but it is too long for other shots like group photos.
I would like to know would it be better for me to get the 35mm, or just sell the prime and get the Tamron 17-50mm.
You will et a lot of mileage out of that tamron - at 2.8, you can still take a nice portrait at 50mm.

Another option would be the sell the 50 1.4, buy the tamron, and keep and eye out for a cheap manual focus 50mm lens for the occasional portrait. That's what my K 55 1.8 is for.
