I had the 35/2 before my brief run with Canon. Had it before the age of digital and it served me well for over a decade. I'm not sure if I will get another one or drop the cash on the G.
My friendly UPS drive dropped off the 28-300 VR a few hours ago. I've got to say it has exceeded my expectations by a mile. I've never had a lens that could be shot at 300mm at 1/25s and I can do it with this one. I haven't shot it out in daylight yet but I think it is going to be extremely usefull on FF.
