Thanks eveyrone. It seems to be a pretty sharp copy, as far as I can tell. No real portraits as of yet, but I'm gonna try to get some done this weekend.

His name is Scratch- a friend's doggie. Sorry it's so big.

100% crop no pp

Full shot, no pp resized for web only. Sorry, earlier I resized it in photobucket and it was only like a 1/4 inch diagonal. Here's the real shot, cropped and resized for web.

I'm sorry, been out on the town, but such shots say zero about a lens to me. 100 crops etc

Dogs eye? I don't believe for one second you give a rats arse about a dogs eye, where's the Challenge in that? What am i meant to say to a shot like that? that is quite litteraly a shot of a dogs eye, erm money well spent.

What reassurance do you want or need?. Honestly now no offence to you, but you could have took that shot with any lens you owned

We all have to get away from this, is my purchase a good one. have i made the right choice ect.

Enjoy your lens, learn how to use it, and don't seek reassurance from anybody.


I don't know what good composition is.... Sometimes for me composition has to do with a certain brightness or a certain coming to restness and other times it has to do with funny mistakes. There's a kind of rightness and wrongness and sometimes I like rightness and sometimes I like wrongness. Diane Arbus

That looks good for a 100% crop with no PP. I look forward to seeing the rest of your pics with the new lens.

I've just gotten back from a night on the town as well, so here it goes:

If you looked at the first post close enough you would have noticed that (due to my error) the whole shot was there (not just the eye), but it's size was reduced to almost a 1/4 inch viewable, so it was unnoticed. My screw up, I fixed it. Big deal. Sorry to be so misleading to those who don't look at the whole post.

While you're entitled to your opinion, I think what you said and the way you said it is just plain rude, whether or not that was your intention.

1) I do care about the dog's eye. I liked the fact that I could see the reflection so clearly (at least to my standards). You are not meant to say anything if you don't want to. No one is forcing you. I do not care what anyone thinks of what I do, but I know that there are knowledgable people here that can tell me if they notice anything out of the ordinary, and I (as do many others) rely on everyone here to be honest and alert me of anything that I should know of so I do not waste my hard earned money on things that don't perform. I come to this forum for reassurance. To me, that's what it's for. So what if you don't like it. Yeah, my 50 1.8 could have produced the same shot, but who cares? I was posting a picture that I created while using the 35.

2) I enjoy reading/sharing about people's purchases, and I am glad that there is somewhere we can go to ask these things. People asked for pictures. I posted them. I don't see anything wrong with people asking for guidance. Not everyone here is expert on all things lenses.

3) I am and will continue to seek reassurance if and when I see fit. Just don't read my posts if you think they are silly.

4) Here's another shot for those who care:
Exposure time: 0.020 s (1/50)
Aperture: f/2.0
ISO equiv.: 1600

I have been following along. Before I hit the "BUY" button at B&H...
let us recap.
The 35 f2mm is great , for a prime/only walk about,similar to 50mm in 35mm feel...,

The 28mm is great too and has USM ...
I'm leaning to the 28mm for the 50ish feel. I do have other lens ( a macro and a zoom)
Good pick?

Okay, headed to the shop tomorrow, might ask to see the 35 f/2. opinions before I buy? shots even? thanks all.

Tried it before but went for the 1.4L

The f2 is very good at f5.6-f8 range sharpness wise but the colurs are a little cold for my liking, for its price though a good lens. Not so great wide open compared to the 1.4L but helluva site cheaper!;)

Pros: small, cheap, very good IQ at f5.6-f8
Cons: non-silent AF (noisy to some ears, including mine), cool colour rendition, just OK IQ at wider apertures

Ive been using my 35/2 for a few months now and really love the lens. Its cheap, its sharp, its perfect for 2-3 person portraits, and great as a walk around lens. There are no major issues with the lens as far as vingetting, CA, or distortions (unlike its brother the 28/2.8 and CA). If you have double the money, the Sigma 30/1.4 is a nice alternative. Better build, better IQ, better performer at f/2. I got mine for $165 so its gonna be damn near impossible to beat at that price point.

Here are some of my 35 2.0 shots (I'm new to digital so they may not be all that great!)

I used the 35mm f/2 for five years straight as my primary lens. Sure it has its faults, but it takes great pictures. For the money, it's a great lens.

cute kitties! I find that dogs love the AF sound! They perk their ears up and look all cute for the photo!
