| p.1 #19 · Sold the 35L for the new 35mm f2 IS: First impressions and a couple of snapshots |
Eyvind -- Thanks for posting, and I hope you'll do more -- some outdoor "daylight" (I know for you it's a lot of dusk this time of year!), and more of these evening types. Oh, yes, a few more shots at MFD, please! Thanks for the link.
Like ISO1600, I'm also very interested in this lens as a possible replacement for my humble 35/2, which I like a lot. This may bea prime I'll get with it's good IQ and MFD. If this is sharper and improved IQ, along with the IS, it's a winner for me.
I also have the Samyang 35/1.4, so I'm covered for a fast, sharp 35, and never had need or desire for the 35L (despite it's high acclaim from owners).
I understand what eosfun is saying with the two other new primes. It's a bit odd, but there is some sense. Personally, if I were the designer, instead of the two wide angle 24 & 28, I would have split the difference, and gone for faster aperture = 26mm f/2.0 IS. Then the sequence would be this 35/2 IS, followed by the 50/1.4 IS and 85/2 IS. (I'd really like a 50/2 Compact Macro IS, but I'm sure I'm in a minority.)
