Upload & Sell: Off
I love this lens! I feel like I'm gaining much more than I'm losing and I like the size/weight difference.
This pair of 35mm are hard to make mind, which one to prefer - when adding 2/28 into mix it gets really difficult. I like 2/35 very much for "urban"-stuff, but for forest I prefer 1.4/35 - of course I shoot also forest with 2/35, but it takes a lot of precaution to avoid the ugly dark corner bokeh. While f/1.4 version is problem free at any situation at f/2.8 (f/4-5 with f/2 version), and most of the time good even wide open.
Im currently figuring out should I take to Malta
a) minimalistic 2/28, 1.4/50, and 2/135 (city/tourist stuff 28&50 (+135 for some cityscapes), nature/landscapes 28&135)
b) "cover wide range" 2/25, 1.4/35(or 2/35), 1.4/50 and 2/135 (city/tourist stuff 25&50, nature/landscapes 35&135)
I'm afraid that option b) would just lead to never having correct lenses on camera bodies, and knowing my tendency not to like changing lenses, it will lead to situations where I miss shots since they would require to change a lens.
Option a) is great otherwise, but gap between 135mm and 28mm is quite big. Also would like to have 85mm with me...but most likely not happening, don't want too heavy bag, since most likely there will be quite a lot of walking. Also from rendering style point of view 50 and 85 Planars are quite close each another.
Both Planar T* 1.4/85 and APO-Sonnar T* 2/135 work well to "emulate" larger sensor. Last weekend shoot few scenes with 85mm 4-5 photo vertical panoramas:
f/13, 5s, Hoya HD polarizer
f/2.8, 1/4s, Hoya HD polarizer
f/2.8, 0.4s, Hoya HD polarizer
