I thought it is the photographer job to think of a use (or two...) for a lens. Unless you go for the extreme in either end (too long or too wide), you can shoot pretty much any type of subject. I regularly shoot my landscape, portrait, street, etc. at this focal. Heck, it's such a good lens and with a high MP camera, you can shoot and crop all day long or pano stitch that would put any WA to shame. If the technical output is up to my standard, I would enjoy my photography more since I just need...Show more →
Sorry, but what are you talking about? Shoot and crop.....I am really wondering how much time you spend travelling and photographing landscapes. I just can't see myself going on a trip to Iceland, New Zealand, Patagonia and take this lens with me. Heavy...will always limit me to 55 mm...
What people use today is 24-70 or 24-105 for flexibility. Then they also use UWA like 21, 17 mm or 16-35 or 17-40 or 14-24 from Nikon. And....in many occasions 70-200 (I used it most of the time in Tuscany).
No, you are super wrong. It is not a job of a photographer to think about a use for a lens. Photographer that is really doing a lot of real life photography knows what tools he needs and will always pick them.
I am 100% certain that what we will see from this lens soon is mostly people photographing cans, books, trees or something else to show how sharp the lens is and how great is the boken.
What you can do is to check threads of Sigma 35 f/1.4 and Zeiss 35 f/1.4 and you will see how different photographs are. Then ask yourself a question why.
