2. With 35mm on APS-C body, you would be forced to shoot from 9' away to capture a 5.7' x 3.8' area in the viewfinder. A 7' shooting distance will only capture a 4.4' x 2.9' size area.

I haven't found distance to the subject a problem for indoor shots. This was shot with a 30d and a 35L (that's an 8 1/2' tree and one of my teenaged granddaughter).

Don't know what to say :confused: ...I just used my 40D with 35mm lens to fit the floor-to-ceiling space into the viewfinder, and that was at shooting distance of 157" or about 13'. Using the program f/calc, an APC-C body with 35mm lens at 13' captures 8.3'
Given the fact that the 40D viewfinder sees 95% of what is captured, the two values are consistent with each other.

currently my all-time favorite lens on my 50D. Would only replace it with the 50/1.2 on a Full Frame, which is not in the budget for a while.

Unless you're taking close headshots with the 35L on a crop, you are not going to get distortion. I started off with a 17-55, noticed I took alot of pictures at 35mm. So, I bought the 35L and am enjoying it. Of all my lenses, I use the 35L most.

Sometimes I miss not having something wider so I might look at adding a 24L II. That will be plenty wide for me.

I've read a bunch on this lens.

Can someone explain the distortion on this lens, I read its like a FF 50mm but since it has the perspective of a 35 it shows distortion?
The reason I'm looking into this is, I was either going to buy a 50L or the 35L.

Can you also post a pic taken to discibe this.

I want to use this for portraits, when light and space is limited---- 3/4 shots inside homes

Put your 28-135 @ 35mm and shoot for awhile. This is the BEST way to determine whether a 35mm prime is the right lens for you.

35L is one of those magical lens. its perfect on a crop or a full frame. shines on either body. i would give up my 70-200 f/2.8 is before i gave up my 35L. As for the sigma 30mm, i had 3 lousy copys and and took my money and invested in the 35L. best decision i ever made. sigma cant touch the 35L's peformance. its my favorite lens. 135L is next on my list.

Yep,,, it was between the 35L and the 17-55 f2.8.
Since I have a smaller budget, I was originally going to buy the 17-55 to have some versitility.

I wont be going FF for 5yrs+, if I'm lucky, since I have a full time job elsewhere.
