Very cute Geno (both the photos and the girl)! :) I see she still has her wonderfully wild hair.
I wasn't aware that you have this lens now. Hope you like it as much as I do.

Recent acquisition. :) I don't think her hair's ever going to be normal. :)

Perfect shots of a beautiful model.

These kinds of pictures are exactly why I need this lens! She just pops right out of the background!

Thanks! This lens seems to work very well for chasing this hyperactive child around outside. :)

Shout it out loud! :)

I've subscribed to this thread for a while now, looks like I'm about to actually pluck up the courage and sell some of my lenses to partly fund the purchase.

I'm going to sell my Sigma 12-24 as it ijust doesn't get enough use for my type of photography. I'll sell the 28mm f1.8 , as this is just to similar in focal length , although I really do like this lens.

The one I'm debating to sell is the 50mm f1.4.

I feel that the 35L will be too close to the 50mm f1.4 , and hence the 50mm will become redundant.

The next lens in the focal length is the 85mm f1.8.

Has anyone found the 50mm to close to the 35mm?

I own all those FL primes and feel that they are different enough...but then again, everyone is different. My 35 and 85 get much more use than my 24 and 50 do, with the 50mm seeing the least amount of time on the camera. This is the percentage of the approximate usage: 35L (50%), 85L (25%), 24L (15%), 50L(10%).

Again, everyone is different in their preferences so you might want to hang on to it until after you get the 35 and then make your decision. I can pretty much see your 50mm 1.4 getting used very little after getting the 35L - it is a significant upgrade, IMO.

*raises hand*

I had both 50mm 1.4 and the 35L at one point. I ended up selling the 50mm because it was too close. I'm currently saving for the 85mm. I think the 35+85 combo will make me happy. (on FF)

mind sharing how did you get that kind of 'mood' for the pictures? (the vintage mood style I guess). presets in lightroom? or if manually, how would one achieve the same effect? (saturation, contrast, etc.) thanks!

Glad you like it, you've got PM.

Thanks, glad you like it!

See I have both the 7D and the 5D, so having the 35L and a 50mm would just be silly

Why's that? Keep the 35L on the 5D and the 50 on the 7D. then you'll have a 35/80 combo.

Got a little bored today and decided to take some random shots with my 35L. The first shot was actually just a test shot that I ended up kind of liking -- I was just dialing in the exposure.
