Duh!

I know of these websites but had not searched them for 'sharpening' material.

Thanks.

can I ask an unrelated question: what do you think of that 35mm 2.0 D?

35 f/2 D
In reply to Fred Mueller, May 31, 2011

I really like it, it's not an 105 in terms of resolution, but it's very good for candids. Some of my favourite images were done with it, for example, this one:

But observe that I'm not lens obssessive, I like all my lenses ;).

that's a fine shot - I think you sold me

I have the 24 2.8, 50 1.8 and 85mm 1.8 D lenses and I am thinking of picking up the 35 2.0....I like the actual aperture rings.... they work on my film bodies....but I just like moving the ring by feel....

I am not "lens obsessive" either ..... I think that 35 2.0 would be great on the D700 which seems to be a good body for average glass....

thanks

I have a 27" calibrated monitor and the difference in the bottles is obvious, in the colors and DR

Focus ring Re: 35 f/2 D
In reply to Fred Mueller, May 31, 2011

The only issue I have with that lens is the focus ring, no damping at all. It's really loose, likely to accomodate the action of the AF engine inside the camera. So, for manual focus, it's as good as the newer or older lenses (before AF).

why?
In reply to rhlpetrus, May 31, 2011

Why is the Chivas bottle half empty? That could easily skew the test results.

Some people say you need to avoid smoking, drinking and kissing girls if you want to have steady hands for photography. I agree regarding smoking ... ;).

Nice test, but more importantly, are you going to do one on skin tones too?

Best regards,

The 35mm f/2.0 D performs very well on my D700. A very good value lens. Performs very well on my old D80 which my dad now owns.
