I agree it's a great little lens for the money. It's even quite handy for night photography..

hey dustin I really like your post processing I'd be very keen to see a tutorial on the details of how you do it
i'd even buy one.

have you seen trey ratcliffs flatbooks.com site where different photographers sell ebooks for 10 bucks or so? I think you could make some good money if you did one

Thanks for the samples in this topic, I've been teetering on the edge of getting a new copy, and now I'm really compelled to do so.

Teetering done, lens ordered! Yee-ha!  8)

I think you'll be pleased with it's performance, optically it is good; just doesn't have a 'snob' value.

Below is our latest picture shot on the 35mm f2 and below that a comparison we shot on the 35mm L f1.4 of the chapel at Marlborough College ( where the Duchess of Cambridge - nee Kate Middleton - was at school).

At f8 to 11 there is no difference.

It is a great little lens :) To be honest I expect to use it most at about f/2.8 to f/5.6 and not to stop it down all that much beyond about f/9. Its main uses will be travel, street, low light and as a contingency lens that can always find a place in my bag (like the 50 mm f/1.8 Mk I). Yes, (small) size does matter!!!

5D3, 5D2, NEX-6 | SY14mm f/2.8, Ʃ20mm f/1.8, 24mm f/2.8, 35mm f/2, Ʃ35mm f/1.4A, 50mm f/1.8 I, Ʃ50mm f/1.4 EX, 100mm f/2.8L Macro, 17-40L, 24-105L, 70-200 f/2.8L IS II, 1.4x II, 70-300L, 100-400L | E-mount: SY12mm f/2, Ʃ19mm & 30mm f/2.8 EX DN, 16-50 & 55-210 OSS | 2x FT-QL, AE-1P, FD(n) & FL primes

Thanks for the shout out.  It is something that I have considered doing, as I am an author already (although my writing is theological in nature).
