Nice captures, Julian. I especially like your shot of the Queen Mary.

these are amazing


Hockey and wedding photographer. Favourite camera / lens combos: a 1DX II with a Tamron 45 1.8 VC, an A7Rii with a Canon 24-70F2.8L II, and a 5DSR with a Tamron 85 1.8 VC. Every lens I own I strongly recommend [Canon (35Lii, 100L Macro, 24-70F2.8ii, 70-200F2.8ii, 100-400Lii), Tamron (45 1.8, 85 1.8), Sigma 24-105]. If there are better lenses out there let me know because I haven't found them.

Hi Dave, could you post some corner crops of shots taken with the 5DS and 35L2 combo? I would like to see how obvious the double-line bokeh is. Thanks

I did that here: http://photography-on-the.net ...showthread.php?p=17​913026

There seems to be a set distance from the lens where it happens. It isn't a corner thing...it happens throughout the frame. It is only obvious with thin lines like the little twigs in trees or joints in a sidewalk, etc.

In the above shot I don't see the sidewalk joint double, but I have another image in the same set where I do...so it may also be dependent on focus distance as well. Point is I see it in some instances, but not in most.

Bokeh seems harsh to me on this first one... :(
Bokeh of the 35L first version is smoother for me.
It is the pb with modern lenses, with very high levels of sharpness...

I keep fighting myself. .
I want this lens very much .. 35mm is the perfect walk around prime in my opinion . Yes there are other options, , I would get version 1..

But I really would prefer weather sealed , I liked shooting in the rain or snow with confi5

Then use the old lenses with less sharpness if you value bokeh more. If you want superior bokeh, the Zeiss Distagon T* 1.4/35mm is your lens. The old 35L did not have amazing bokeh either.

From the 70-200mm f/2.8L II thread:

ouch, nice portrait but ugly bokeh... ! a common issue with modern lens (nervous bokeh, not as smooth as old lenses) and forest background (lot of banchs transformed into disgracious lines)

You are a broken record: modern lenses bad, old ones good. OK, noted. ;)

I disagree with this. I see a tack sharp image in the foreground and nice bokeh rendering. It isn't a 50L shot at F1.2, ie it is crazy sharp, but what I also think you are seeing, and it isn't bokeh per say, it is the much, much, much flatter field of focus, ie the 35L II is nearly completely flat from center to edge, versus nearly every other lens you know of when shot wide open. So yes it is bokeh, the out of focus areas, but no it is not bokeh at the same time, it is the curvature of what is actually in focus. Finally, I also think, not viewed at this scale but larger scales, it is high pixel density that makes the transition from in focus to out of focus appear differently - it is one of the things I personally noticed immediately when I started shooting with the 5dsr vs the 5d3 with the 35f2 at F2 - the falloff transition looks different.


Hockey and wedding photographer. Favourite camera / lens combos: a 1DX II with a Tamron 45 1.8 VC, an A7Rii with a Canon 24-70F2.8L II, and a 5DSR with a Tamron 85 1.8 VC. Every lens I own I strongly recommend [Canon (35Lii, 100L Macro, 24-70F2.8ii, 70-200F2.8ii, 100-400Lii), Tamron (45 1.8, 85 1.8), Sigma 24-105]. If there are better lenses out there let me know because I haven't found them.
