What exactly is the purpose of the DA 35mm F2.4?
Jul 26, 2013

I picked one up and I'm not really impressed. At all.

- not WR and does not have quickshift, and also plastic mount not metal. Should really be DAL series.

- 18-55 kit lens is comparable at 35mm but also gets you the useful 18mm range for architecture shots

- 50mm f1.4 has better low light. F2.4 isn't really that much an improvement over the 18-55's f4 ish in that range.

Only good thing is the low weight and size. Otherwise, I don't really see a good reason to keep it around.
