Thanks...Yes you won't regret it. There a virtual tie. The 24L is sharper in center but the 35L is sharper at the edges. Both are OUTSTANDING.

Proof, if proof were needed, that a 35L *can* be the most flexible lens there is - except for bird shooters etc that is :)

What I love about the 35L is that it can do portraits, groups, landscapes and so much more.

But I can sometimes get the shot in a dark room (available) that you can't get with the zoom. ;) two stops is a lot of light.

Yes, so there is 50 1.4, it will be great as well, not that much difference in stops between 1.2 and 1.4 anyway, also there are many pro weddings are shooting without 1.2 or 1.4 lenses and they have amazing shots, not necessary you will have the best shots in dark rooms only :p;) and in all cases you will use high ISO or flash anyway.

I never said there wasn't guys shooting great stuff with the 24-70 but as you can see that you can shoot a wedding and do a very good job with a 35L and an 85L ONLY and you can get shots that you can't get with the zoom because 2 stops is a lot of light.

I had the 24-70 once and traded it for my 35. The 35 is truly in a league of it's own in comparison to the 24-70.

I totally agree. To expand on what Echo said I think if I had to I could shoot almost everything that I shoot with a 35 on FF. Thats versatile.

Too bad i have 24-105 and 24-70 and 16-35, i never using 35mm focal length that much.
I am sure if i will get 35mm i will use it, 24mm i will use it, 14mm i will use it, but i never think i must buy 35mm, and i will never sell even my sigma 12-24 that i don't use it for 35L.
35L is a great lens, but i die to get 85L before, and 600, i think after i buy 2-3 lenses then i will be 35L despite of how great is this lens.

Today I spent my first afternoon with my new 35L. From what I see you foot zoom very close to several paces back.

I'm starting to let my viewfinder guide me rather than mentally/consciously monitoring where my feet are. I'm challenging myself "not" to use my zooms.

I will admit I am not justifying my $$$ spent for this piece of glass. This 35L is a great prime with pleasing bokeh (not dreamy like my 85L) However I was so pleased with the results. Spot on accurate AF and very sharp wideopen (very similar to my Sigma 30mm)

Pat thanks for sharing those photos. It certainly gives me an idea of what this lens can capture with different FOV with foot zooming.

Pat, those pics are awesome. Thanks for sharing. The 35L is the next lens on my shopping list.

Foot zooming is one of the best skills to master. Even with a zoom. Perspective control is so important for shooting with a specific style.

And whats maybe even more important than foot zooming is learning to see at a given focal length.
