| p.1 #4 · Panasonic 35-100mm f/2.8 - Bill Castleman review |
That's not been my experience at all. I've been extremely pleased with my 35-100. Quite sharp at f/2.8 and very very sharp at f/4. The corners aren't as sharp as the 75/1.8, but frankly there are VERY few lenses that are.
The 'wouldn't even use it as a portrait lens' comment seems extremely off to me. Is the 75/1.8 better? Yeah...but I think the 75/1.8 is one of the best lenses of all time, frankly...for any system. If I could only keep one, though, I'd keep the 35-100.
I also think you're looking at MTF vs one of the sharpest primes in existence and making big jumps in logic. At the end, he concludes by saying "Overall, this light weight, compact, high performance zoom is well worth the cost of purchase if you shoot candid event photos. I'm not sure I will be needing my Canon EOS system 70-200mm f/2.8L lens since this Panasonic 35-100mm lens will provide most of the photographic performance of the 70-200 at a fraction of the weight and size."
These are all with the 35-100:
