Awesome shot, and shots.
This one definitely replaces the 85 1.8 in my book as Canon's best bang-4-buck lens.

Tig or miter?

Then it will it have to cost around $800(35F2 IS).

No IS, so probably closer to $400 (using ratio from 70-200 f4 IS vs non).

Still don't know how to resize these files for posting without losing 80% of IQ, but trust me this shot looks good in RAW

I have to say, I didi a lot of pic peeping and I chose the Nifty fifty instead. I went through the sample threads with both at PoTN and to me, page for page, pic for pic, the Nifty fifty thread had sharper images with much more vivid colors and a 3dish look, very clear. It's faster, and sharpens up very well at 2.0 to 2.2, cheaper (basically disposable). Yeah, I realize this has the metal mount, probably focuses faster, (though I have heard some say not much faster).

But for me, image quality trumps all, and I went through both of those threads until my eyes were about to fall out, and I gave the upper hand to the nifty fifty for IQ. Something about the contrast or something that I don't like about this lens, like the pics are foggy or something, the colors subdued, and I thought the Nifty Fifty pics just had a more clear, 3dish look overall with more vivid colors. I could have purchased either one, but I went with the Nifty for these reasons, it was close, but just check the sample threads out.

Really, I think folks should just get both the 40 and the 50, as cheap as they are, no reason not to really. I think I will pick the 40 up as well.

I have said this in other threads-but if you have a 24x36mm Canon Digital Body, I would call off the search for a 45mm F 2.8 Tessar (lens adaptation problems with aperture lever that interferes with the mirror box), or a 45mm F 2.8 Nikkor (manual focus as well, no auto aperture). Costs 1/2 or less the price of these two.

For the F 2.0 fanatics, there is still the CV 40mm F 2.0, manual focus, and more than twice the cost (I have never seen an IQ comparison between this and the Canon, but I would bet the Canon would easily trump the C/Y Zeiss or the Nikkor, both Tessar derived designs.)
