    Okay, so now this lens is at the top of my list to acquire, but I keep getting tempted by the 35/2 prime lens. How's the distortion (if any) of the 35-70 at 35mm? I like the 70mm length for some close up portraits, but I think I'll shoot a lot at the 35mm length as well.

    Thanks!

    here's one from last night, up close @f2.8
    870653283_35dacc83ef_o.
    @35 this lens doesn't focus as close as the f2 so distortion is notta prob ....good luck
     
  3. is there any distortion on the 35 f/2?

    Yes Joe, but really only noticable if say u bury the lens in someone's face..haven't really noticed it on objects per say, but i would imagine it's still there ....;-))

    Okay - definitely sold. Just pulled the trigger and placed my order with B&H. The 35/2 prime almost won out (need to wait on the 17-55 for a little longer).

    With B&H closed tomorrow (why is that?) should get here by the end of the week. I'll post some pictures and my thoughts when I get.

    Thanks for everyone's help. Nuteshack - you always seem to have great photos with this lens. Sold me and my wife.

    Ah. Being too secular, I only notice the hallmark religious holidays.

    Thanks.

    Cool - I'd love to get your thoughts on this lens versus the 35/2. You had some great pictures of the newborn with the 35/2 (almost got me to get that lens as well!).

    haha, thanks! :smile: I can't wait to try this puppy out. I think there's a few other people getting in on the "last of the new stock" 35-70/2.8 lenses too. I think there's at least 3 or 4 of us, along with at least a half dozen people trying to find 35/2 lenses, lol.

    Ed, how do the 18-135 zoom MTF charts compare to these two at 35mm? :biggrin:

    Good one.
     
  17. These were taken at a recent event at my church. I'm actually seriously considering selling this lens since I have this focal length cover with other lenses.
    Here's one : 35mm @ f4 1/1000 sec.
    82537428.
    and another : 35mm @f4 1/500 sec.

    Got a horrendously bad copy. :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: It's back-focusing badly and it's so soft wide-open at f/2.8 that it was tough to tell where the peak of the focus even was. I had to stop it down to f/5.6 in the focusing tests just to tell for sure. US 836795, bye bye. :frown:
