Has anyone got this lens already? I'd love to see some pictures, thinking about getting this lens for low light/shallow DOF work.

Thanks

Got this lens a week ago. So far, so good. Sharpness is equal to the 35L 's i've used in the past, build quality is even better than the 35L and manual focusing feels silky smooth.

Hmm maybe even on my 20d the manual focus wont matter as im not going to be shooting sports. 35mm at f9 should be quite hard to miss

Thanks everyone. I don't have a special focusing screen although i really should get one. As funny as it sounds, i've been shooting 85% of my portraits using live view. It actually feels quite natural to me now :-) I also might use Magic Lantern AJ firmware on my 5D2 because it has a focus peek feature that brings up a magnified view when i turn my manual focusing ring and makes it dissapear after i stop turning :-)

It really is a great lens and i higly recommend it to everyone.
