YAY this lens has already impressed me and I havnt even taken it outside yet! The 1.4 DOF of AMAZING, an I've found if I don't get just right up in their face the distortion isn't as bad as I'd imagined. I will take it outside (if it stops pouring) and get some test shots tomorrow! Does anyone have any tips on using this lens? Now all I need is the 85!!

You will love it, and honestly my guess is you will use it more than any of other lenses you have.

I just got it today, but my FF is in the shop, so I've only gotten to try it out with my Rebel...

...but, so far, I am impressed. Nice colors, contrast, and the bokeh is decent. I can't wait to see this on my 5DII!

I have been pretty swamped so I haven't gotten to play with it as much as I'd like but from the few shots I've taken I can tell that I'm going to love it. That quick shot of my dog made him feel almost 3D and the bokeh is buttery smooth :)

The 35L is a killer lens, it stays on my 5D Mark II now (maybe because its my newest lens). The 24-70 is in the bin...I mean bag.

I don't think anybody disagree's the 35L is not sharp at f1.4. The only problem is the CA, but I still think its first class.
