Will do......if we end up doing that, will buy the FM B&S beforehand.

What are you thinking of the 65/2?

I tempted to pick one up, but might be a little to clean/bland/sterile for me. Can't decide.

Great photo too

Thanks.

I don't know how to evaluate it, it has slightly higher performance than 35i on SL2. I do have a feeling that it is not long enough to 85mm or short enough to 50mm. It is quite obvious, is it? I hope you get what I am trying to say. I just need get use to the focal length given the fact I use 50 and 80-100 a lot more in my past experience.

I can't say I love it but it simply delivers with smooth bokeh, corner problem free, sharp, small, nicely build and nice color correction. It is a good student without much character. I still enjoy using it though as I can focus on shooting without thinking too much how to avoid problem as there is really no much problem to avoid. I guess similar can be said for 35i, just it is more rare for 35mm lens behave like this.

The Sigma 65/2 has the highest resolution/contrast from the Series I lenses. Everything is well corrected including SA, so you get neutral rendering. Like @zhangyue wrote, OOF corners are well behaved and optical vignetting is better than average. It may be too perfect for you though.

Thank Fred. Yeah, I think it would be a bit too clean and clinical for me. I do like more personality and SA, and I am not too concerned about sharpness. When I get to 50mm and above, I want some character generally as one of the primarily uses becomes portraits where tonal nuances, softness and general personality becomes far more important (at least to me).

@Zhangyue I know just what you mean on all accounts. I think I'll pass for now. If it were in the 75-85mm I would probably pull the trigger even though it's a bit cleaner than I would like, but 65mm screws up my spacing. While I like the 35i, I would like if it had more SA, but generally for a 35mm that is going to shoot all subjects and with the wider AOV, I want something that isn't going to be ugly/rough/distracting with the increased atmospheric intake.

My fingers will remain crossed for a 75-90/2i with a bit more character. Photos below are all 35i

I also like the textural and tonal quality very much on the bottom half of the 2nd photo.

Nice set. 35i is shining in your hand.

I agree with you about 35mm focal length. If you want bring it to everywhere to do most thing right, it better is consistent. It is more valuable than character. RX1ís value to me is not character for sure but consistent and versatile in a small package.

35/65/105 can be a nice set. As long as you think 65 is a long 50, 65 start making lot sense as 35 and 50 will be too close and 35/85 will miss important focal (50) between. With modern high pixel sensor, crop can be a new zoom, 65 as wider 85 isnít too bad. 45mm is a outlier but it make perfect single lens out.

35i is really sweet being wider IMHO. Iíd like to see a 20mm, and 90-135mm for the I series. With 35 and 65, it is too late for 28i as I donít want either overlap or shuffle (buy and sell) again.

Thanks!!

I do like the RX1, but I also do find it a bit bland sometimes as far as character, though as you say, remarkably consistent, always pleasant--and I never have to shoot around it's weaknesses like many of my other great lenses. I rarely shoot about 75mm-ish or longer (mostly landscape with a 100mm, sometimes portraits). The longer I shoot, I just keep getting wider. I have a Contax G 21 I like, and the GM 24, so a 18-20i would be quite attractive to me. Also, fully agree on the wide 35mm. The Pentax/RX1/35i are all very near in FL, and quite nice, the Pentax being the widest and most preferable to me. The CV 35mm run a little long, so did the ZM 35 and CY 35 1.4, but I didn't test them against other options like I did the CV's.

Spacing is the True Burden of every prime shooter. After I pick up the 24i, my AF prime spacing will be 24/45/100. For manual focus, my spacing is 28/50/100 (CZ Contax).

Sigma 35mm f/2 DG DN - Sunstar at f/22

I like it a lot and wish the 24/3.5 and 45/2.8C could do this as well but unfortunately they share the same 7-blade aperture that not yield well-defined sunstars even at f/22.

Just to keep this thread active, here's a shot with the 35/2. I recently used a new puppy as the explanation/excuse to the wife to try out new lenses. Far more processing than most forum members probably prefer, but my wife loved the edited picture, so it was a win in my book. Still undecided if it really offers enough wow factor versus the convenience of my 24-70 DGDN, but the size and form factor are very nice.

Cute puppy--looks like he's going to be a tall one with those long legs! How old in this photo?

Just met my friends new son. All 35i WO:

Just under 13 weeks when we took that shot. Crazy how fast they grow. That was taken on 2/20/21.

Those are some incredible shots with that 35i! Precious images.

Just to bump this up to keep it active, here's a shot of the pups with the 65mm (processed and cropped so may be of little use in evaluating the lens, but my wife loves it). I must admit that I prefer the 65mm focal length for photographing the pup in our little basement "studio" over the 85mm. Just allows a little bit more space for full body shots.
