Took my first trip to a comic book convention last weekend. Comicon Seattle. I had no clue what to expect as that's definitely not something I'm usually in to. I went into it thinking it would be a bunch of nerds (which I was right!) but there was a huge variety to say the least. Skaters, thugs, elderly folks, kids, etc and the best part was that everyone treated everyone equally. It was PACKED yet whenever someone accidentally bumped into me, they were instantly apologetic. Anyways, it was cool to tag along with a buddy who's really into this stuff and I got some cool shots.

Not sure if this is anyone here but had to give him props for a good job on the makeup although he lacked in everything else haha.

What about 28mm f/1.8 vs 35mm f/2?
28mm little faster and litter wider :confused: wouldn't that be a better choice?

The 28 f/1.8 doesn't have the bokeh, contrast, or build quality of the 35L. It is definitely wider though. If you're looking for one, I have one I can sell.

Not necessarily - I think 35 is "just right" for indoors on FF. With a 28, faces are going to be a bit more distorted and less realistic. Yes, the 28 is slightly faster, but in real life 1.8 vs 2.0 is not going to matter. The other thing to think about is price - the 35 f2 is quite a bit cheaper than the 28. *Supposedly* the 35f2 is a tad sharper than the 28, but I don't have experience with the 28 to back this up.

Bottom line, if you have the cash, get the 35L. If not, the 35 f2 is a real gem for the price.

Just get a 35L...such a great lens..

Here are two outtakes from my last shoot. I'm not in love with them, but decided to edit them to work on my processing.

Thanks. Hmmm...let me think. I was laying on the floor almost looking up at her a little. I'd say 4 feet. 5 tops. Pretty close.

Thanks. Just tryinng to get an idea how much coverage you can get on this focal length in somewhat tight spaces. I guess I'll find that out for myself soon. I'm ecstatic. Lol

Good, you should be! My only advice would be not to judge this lens too quickly. Give it a little time. If you're experience is anything like mine, there's a bit of a learning curve to this lens. Framing with a slightly wider angle than say, 50 or 85 is a little bit challenging. At least, it was for me.

Enjoy it!

I'm actually looking forward to the challenge of getting really good with my 35L... It seriously has effectively not left my 5D2 since I got it, except for a couple of times (to check out the 24-70 I got for a song, and to put my 50 f/1.4 through the ropes before shipping it off and confirming I wasn't sending out a dud).

I've been thinking of trying to put something like a project together using only the 35L to increase my skills all around, but so far I've got nothing for ideas.. :(

The thing with the 35 focal length is its harder to get away with just putting the subject in focus and just destroying the background. You have to be more aware of the entire frame.

How about a 35 portrait project? Most people wouldn't associate the 35 FL with portraits...
