In spite of decent reviews, it does not come close to measuring up to my 85 1.8 in sharpness. The difference was quite profound, so I'll be sending it back and trying either the 28 1.8 or (more likely) Sigma 30 1.4.
Initially, I was more interested in those lenses anyway, but the 35 focal length (and decent reviews) got me to change my mind at the last minute. Sigh.
I need a wider-angled lens for portraits (mainly groups) and it really needs to be very close to my 85 in sharpness -- these will be my working lenses for quite a while.
Bummed that I am back to the drawing board and have to make this return (to Adorama.) I had high hopes for this one!
