Upload & Sell: On
I was really surprised how good the shots come through on the not very popular 35-70. Personally I love the push pull, though most prefer two touch.
I am looking at the 20-35 f 2.8 next. I have a 20 f2.8 but to be truthful I've always been underwhelmed by that one (oh well, win some - lose some ) I want to find a good clean copy and am crossing my fingers that I happen to get one as good as the 35-70 in terms of f2.8 performance.
Did you know that supposedly the 20-35 was over 1,600 dollars when new? So now at about $600 or less for a decent used one ... it seem like a decent choice, don't you think?
Sorry to hijack ...
I've been a big fan of the 35-70 since buying my first nikon. Dunno about the 20-35 and would like to see your impressions if you find a good one.
As penance for the hijack, here's a couple more shots, one with the 35-70.
Dunno how great this shot is, but I like it a lot and I've sold quite a few copies. It's Detroit's skyline, shot from the Windsor, Canada side of the Detroit River.
