Really like your set from Zeiss 35 f2
One question: do you think it's worth an update from zeiss 35 f2 to 1.4?
So is it worth the huge price difference .. you have both right?
That is a tough question to answer. I still have both, and am having a hard time to let go f2. I have been thinking about selling f2 and get 25 f2.8 to cover more FL, but that has not happened. It may never happen, I don't know.35 f2 is a lovely lens with strong contrast. 1.4 is a superb lens, and it probably has more detail rendition but heavy. If it was not as heavy as it is, I'd have let go 35 f2 long ago. Going hiking with 1.4 means I may only take one other lens, or none. With f2, I can go with a few. So, it is from the practical reason I am keeping the f2. However, I am not ignoring the fact that when I used f2 a few weeks ago after a long interval, I was more pleased than I imagined.
I guess, if one already has f2 and happy with it, unless 35 is the FL choice for that person (Like some people have many 50mm lenses, even I have 3 ), f2 would do just good. Then, there is the lovely bokeh of 1.4 .. ha ha you can't win.
