I've seen lots of 35mm on sale lately. Is everyone selling theirs because of the sigma?

You guys are exchanging one of the Holy Trinity for the Pancake?
May I ask you why?

It's not so much the pancake as the 24-70 II. It's optically superior in every way except for the aperture range. I purchased the pancake to have as a small, carry anywhere lens.

I'd say in the $1000 range. I sold mine for $920, but it had a small, barely distinguishable mark on the front element.

Thanks Shujert.

I see the 35L as a classic lens that will be around for a long time.
There may be new versions etc...but the 35L will always be regarded as "Magic"

Same here. I loved the 35 L, but decided to try the 24-70 II for versatility although at a hefty price. Because of this, I couldn't keep both of them; however, I have the pancake as my lightweight option.

Well, I'm looking to sell my 24-70 I, and get a 35L or something for my newly found real estate side jobs, so like a 16-35, or a TS, etc...I love my 24-70 but tired of carrying that weight and want some Prime Magic.

Magic = 85L

not 35L. Although the 35L isn't magical it's amazing.

If I had the 35L already, I think wouldn't bother selling and re-buying. Buying from scratch, the Sigma would be the choice for certain.

Well I'm one of those that sold the 35L for sigma., I don't regret it the slightest bit. Really glad I did.
