I understand Leica might have something to say about that ... but it is definitely a nice piece of glass.

All of these have been posted in various places on FM before, but I am happy
to post them again. Whether on full frame or on crop, this lens delivers.

Could you post more pics taken on your 30D? Also any chance for a full res image?

Thank you very much brainiac and Paul!
The 3.4/35-70mm is a very nice lens, much better than for example the 24-70L. But it is also clearly not as good as the 21mm Distagon or the 100mm MP (especially the sharpness wide open and the bokeh). That's the reason for me to change to the 50MP.

This lens at f/5.6 rivals most prime lenses.....someone said.

It certainly has amazing optics, but I never could get used to using it... for some reason. The handling just wasn't there for me. Perhaps when I'm made of more money, I'll think about getting it (again).

Well, it was about time this little gem got some attention. Great photos! I have always considered 35-70 zooms to be boring. I have lately been shooting a lot of landscapes and a 35-70 on FF is a great FL IMO. Paired with a UWA you are good to go.

Full-size image sent by E-mail.

Here is a bit more from this lens on the 30D. This is, of course, stopped down, which
required to make the lens really sing:

Ok, got my copy with a cheap adapter. Even though the mechanism / distance scale on the barrel indicates that it is a parfocal lens, I have actually found that I can focus to infinity at 70mm, but not at 35.

Anyway, it was a little bit dark when I went out to take "proper" photos, so all I can share now is a test shot.

Stopped down to F8.0

Note this is on a 40D, handheld, shutter at 1/400. I think I may get slightly better results if I could go further to infinity (this was at the very stop) so I think I'll get a better (thinner) adapter.
