^^ try live view with the light graph on manual, you can get it just how you want it?

Underexpose 1/3 or 2/3 of a stop. That normally gives a better result in my opinion.

I shot a wedding with the 35, Rok 85, and lensbaby. Weddings can be shot all manual.

They can be, but in these days of amazing autofocus, maybe they shouldn't be. I guess it depends if your being paid to deliver in-focus shots.

I've got one on order too.

I have probably used autofocus all of 3x since having a 600D, usually manually focus regardless of what I'm doing.
So not bothered about manual only focus on this.

I figure it'll make a nice lense at 35mm for pictures, and then 35mm + 3x digital zoom as a two in one for filming.

I guess since this lenses party trick is F1.4 everyone shoots at that when they first get it, I'm more hoping that it'll be a great all rounder, I'm finding more of my shots these days to be at say F8-F11 kind of range.

Although it's nice to have the option to go that wide open for photos, and it should hopefully be handy for filming in low light conditions nearer to the 1.4. if need be... So it should hopefully earn its keep in the camera bag.

I mainly shoot wide open because I'm not so good at composition so I just isolate my subjects :lol:

if you are using the lens without a chip, than you have to use exposure compensation to get the correct exposures. If you add the chip to the lens with double sided tape, than you get correct meterings/exif info/focus confirmation. Just be sure to set the af chip to 24 in microfocus adjust if you buy the chip.
