I love your photos, their composition and lighting.
You have the 6D / EF 35/2 and the EF-M 22/2. How do you find the two compare in terms of facilitating creativity? How often would you just take the EF-M out? Is the combo suitable for reasonably large prints?
I'm looking at getting at EF 35/2 IS as a walk-around lens that is smaller than my 24-105 - also when I go hiking. But this thread has got me thinking...
Hey man - thanks a lot for the nice feedback. I will actually do a direct comparison as a part of the review I am currently doing/writing for the 35mm f/2.
The EOS M/22mm combo produces for its size the best images that I have seen from a compact/small mirrorless. It is a great compliment to a larger option. I've been testing a "secret" big lens, and I'll throw that combo in a pocket in my jacket to give me a wider angle of view at times. If you want compact - it is a great option!
The 35mm f/2 IS is a different beast. The angle of view is the same, but the DOF is much, much thinner wide open because of the FF vs. crop factor. I am quickly falling in love with the lens, but I don't really see it as a competitor to the 22mm because I use it in different ways. The 22mm is a such a value that I will be holding onto it for a long time. That combo allows options in portability (combined with stellar images quality) that is pretty unique.
Here's another shot taken with that combination - outside of the entrance to the Catacombs under San Castillo in Rome:Path to the Catacombs
