Review Date: Jan 19, 2011 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $350.00 | Rating: 8 

 
Pros: Relatively usable at 1.8. I own and use the 35/2 frequently. I have nothing bad to say about the color and contrast of the 35/2. When I bought the 28, I thought I'd get comparable contrast and color from the 28, but I didn't. I wasn't ready to throw this lens away though. It feels a lot like an 85/1.8 to me, just smaller. The files, in digital format, seem to all PP the same way. The contrast and colors seem to be really close to one another. If your looking for a wider prime, and aren't ready to commit to a 24 or 35, then buy this thing, and have some fun on FF with it. I use mine at 2.0 quite a bit, and it's sharp enough. Good bokeh, as well.
Cons:
lacks a bit in color and contrast, compared to older lenses. Easy fix in PP. Just sayin.
