Re: Canon 35mm F2 IS

I got mine today, bought it pre-owned at roughly $460. It was bought stateside by a photo studio owner, still in excellent condition and can pass as new.

Anyway, I'm still testing it now. Pics to follow.

There is no reason not to like this lens...



There is no reason to not like this lens...


My knowledge of grammar fails me... are both of the above correct?

To be honest, both ain't writtin' English good. :)

There was a time when a double negative was acceptable grammar. However, under our current "rules" of grammer, double negatives should be avoided in order to reduce confusion.

"There is no reason to dislike this lens" would be much better if one wishes to structure the sentence using a negative. But it is important to understand that "there is no reason to dislike this lens" is not the same as "there are reasons to like this lens".

They are both awkward, but the first one would commonly be considered to be splitting the infinitive, 'to not like' splits 'to like', so generally 'not to like' would be considered less awkward.

However 'There is no reason to dislike this lens' sounds and reads much better and is easier to understand.

I think it would be the second one, but the first one sounds sort of fine to me as well. My girlfriend has been trying to teach me a second language and as I learn that, my English gets worse and worse ::) lol.

Those are some pretty nice shots! At that price, I think you have a winner

This lens is very underrated, I would buy it 10 times over since I love it that much!

Re: Canon 35mm F2 IS

This thread is inspiring. The 35 IS has just sailed past the 100L to the top of my wish list.

The current 35L seems almost pointless.

I own both and although the 100L is an amazing the lens, there's just something about the 35 IS that makes it my favourite.
