All I can say is wow....and wow again...

This Oly 24 is so much better than the Nikon 24/2.8 I had used for 40 years or so...at least on the Canon Dslr it'll be used on...
I took only a couple of shots to test for flaring, where the Nikkor was terrible....
The Oly's IQ is just wonderful...no flare, no loss of contrast...just what you see through the VF...

It's lenses like this that MAKES you want to go and see the world through them...can't wait....looking forward to posting pix soon...

I have the 50mm f/2H which has a real nice look on B&W film with my F3, but I'd like to add a 28 and a 105 in the future.

I have definitely heard good things about that Olympus 24mm though!

Only have a nifty fifty for now, but renting a 135 f/2 in the upcoming weeks to test it out. Picking it over a 70-200. I think this might go downhill from here.

On a budget, I'd say the 135 is the best L.

Now are we talking best prime L or L in general? And I'm going to assume <1000 budget.

I guess both b/c it will give you the best results in all categories.
AF, color, contrast, sharpness, bokeh.
Seriously, it delivers in all areas.
And it can definitely be had for $100-200 < than a grand.
it's a wonderful FL for FF portraits.

Oops, I get my signs mixed up from time to time. Around $750 I'll say. :oops:
From what I seen from that lens, it always delivers. I would of course love versatility of a zoom, but these primes take everything to whole other level.

well...Iv not got the 24mmL, 35mmL, 50mm Sigma, 85mm Sigma, 135mm L

Its taken me a while to figure out what lenses I like and which I dont (well, I like all the lenses, but some get used more than others) . I plan on selling my 35mmL and 85mm Sigma, and keeping the 24/50/135. Does anyone else use that setup?

I think the 50L is great. more versatile than the 85L. but the 85L delivers a little bit better result. both amazing though.

whatever FL is best for you. neither will disappoint.

135 is great too. but since 85 is the FL for me, I'm going to sell my 50L and get the 85L.

I could never use 35L for portraits, I like a bit of distance between the subject and I. but wow, a LOT of people prefer that FL/lens.
