    Going back and forth between Nikon and Canon, I recently sold my 5D and primes for a D700 and 85 1.4. Loving it so far.

    Untill I can afford a 14-24, I would like to have a wide angle prime for portrait/weddings/lanscape, etc. I was lookin at 35 F2, which is not bad for $300. I heard the bokeh is not that smooth, but I've only seen few samples from this lens being posted and mostly from DX bodies.

    I would apreciate if you could post some of your 35mm f2.0 on FX samples... :smile:
     
  2. I shot this entire camping trip with the 35mm f/2 and D3. Bokeh is actually better on FX than DX. I also preferred this lens over the 50mm which I don't find as sharp wide open. And despite having an extra F-stop, you can shoot at a slower shutter speed with the 35 in low light.

    Exactly the type of shots I was looking for, thanks.

    Saw your pics 'musicandlight', that first pic is what got me to even consider the lens, thanks again...
