Don't have the 35L, but I have worked a lot with wide primes.I will tell you that I personally find it very difficult to achieve critical focus with a "focus recompose" technique. Shorter FL's should make it a bit easier. But I tend to use outer focus points. But then again my stuff doesn't even come close to a lot of the stuff here on POTN.


On the 135L i have no problem wharsoever about recomposing
The 35 seems trickier. Also i believe that shorter FL could make the error bigger

Also, we tend to use the 35mm inside (where the light is not so good) or with bigger exposure times (1/50, 1/60) and every breath / movement counts

About using the back button as focusing, i used it to lock the exposure on the face with spot metering) (i think it works also when recomposing), but when i will shoot in high speed sync with a flash i get the correct exposure from the background and the flash will fill acordingly. How can this be done if i use the back button as focusing one?

And another one : could this improve the shutter (button) life?

another test from yesterday, too bad i forgot the flash

Shorter FL is indeed harder for focus and recompose.

Lets hope that the 5D3 has reliable outer focus points.

I mean like most of the DSLRs from Nikon.

Interesting, I never focus/recompose. When I have, it didn't work out too well. I will have to do a comparison. I guess I could see that bing the case if you had the exact same frame using two different FL lenses. ie. full body portrait with both the 35 (shot up close) and 135 (shot further back). Thanks.

Tried out the recomposing with outer focus points. Don't really have much to compare to, but I do agree that it is trickier
