Play around with that 40 a bunch before you make the jump into owning both. The 5mm difference is minimal, but that pancake has rounded blades.

I love the 35 f/2, it's my single most-used lens - but it's almost twice as much as the 40 and is a much older design. The choppy looking bokeh it can produce is a testament to this fact.

Is this still true even if you're full-frame? I've read that the pancake vignettes on a FF, not that I really mind but I'm just curious.

The more I use it the more I love it, it's really hard to take it off the camera

Is the bokeh here so ugly because of the 5 blades?

This looks like it was shot wide open, you can see circles instead of Pentagons.

just picked up one from a member on here for $265. My damn 50mm f/1.8 after a few years fell apart. Let's see how this 35mm craze everyone is talking about is :p

I honestly didn't believe people how noisy this lens is till I actually tried it. I love it either way though :D

Yeah... Quite a bit of sound. Most noticeable when it focus hunts or going from close to infinity focus. Awesome lens though!

alright - i must know. beautiful lighting (strobes, i presume), beautiful background (somewhere near wide open, i'd also presume). what was your shutter speed, and were you using an ND filter or high speed sync? It looks too good to be true :-P
