For some reason people love to dislike this lens.  Yes, I would rarely use this lens at f2.0.  But I find it quite acceptable at f2.8.  To suggest it is no better than the 24-85 at f5.6 is just silly in my experience.  My 35mm f2 blows away my 24-85.  As a reminder, when looking at these pictures on my 32" monitor at 100%, the photo is in the neighborhood of 80" wide and viewing distance of 1.5ft.  I just love the photos from this lens.  Remember sharpness is not the only attribute of a lens.

f3.2
