  • My kids are closer in age to the first pic than the second/third. So, of course, seeing those gives me anxiety thinking of my kids growing up (and I'm only half-joking)! I like that it's not just a ...
  • Well, I'm no pro and I may end up being the least qualified person to reply. That being said, I just "upgraded" my main indoor/family lens from the 40mm f/2.8 to the 35mm f/2. I agonized over ...
  • That's a heck of a kit! I agree with the other poster that the 35IS would be a great addition for traveling light and versatile, but you do already have the 40mm so it's probably redundant. You ...
  • You're talking about "facts" and what "was shown." I thought the difference was more subjective. Point me in the direction of your proof that the L and the IS have the same "look" at f2 on up and ...
  • I think I missed the part where it was proven that the 35 L doesn't produce a unique and intangible look that can't be replicated by the 35 IS. I see a lot of folks sayin the 35 IS a great lens ...
  • Good discussion and good topic. Would've liked to hear from more people who have used both Canons, but with you picking up the 35IS, we'll soon we'll be able to add your opinions about the lens to ...
  • Well said, and I don't think I said anything contrary to that (did I?). I agree that more info, even if it's only marginally on-topic, is usually a good thing b/c these posts help people in ...
  • When people describe the 35 f2 IS the praise always includes something like "... for the money ." However, in this post, I think the question is, "If I walk into a camera store and the 35 f2 IS and ...
  • Replied in Thanks!
    That's interesting. I don't have the 24-70 lens like you do so you may be right. But I rented the 35L last Christmas and I really loved a lot of the pictures I got but 1) I didn't shoot at the ...
  • If I'm remembering correctly, there was a great discussion here months ago about this very topic (I just looked for it but couldn't find it; maybe I'm getting the 35mm confused with the 50mm). ...
  • Replied in Thanks!
    I know you already made your decision, but here's my 2 cents (if it doesn't benefit you, maybe it'll benefit others reading your post in the future): First off, you have a great plan with the 35mm ...
  • Thanks everyone. I'll try the Amazon off-brand for $10 and see how that goes. Sounds like it has a good chance to work out just fine.
  • Created discussions Replacement Lens Hood
    Anyone ever lost a lens hood? I don't know how I did it, but I did (for my 135mm). Since I don't necessarily want to spend $40 on a Canon version, I'm wondering what have you guys done when you ...
  • I think that pretty much sums it up. A couple things left for me to think about. Is a 2.8 lens fast enough to be worth upgrading? I have 24mm f4 covered with my 24-105, so I'm not sure it's worth ...
  • I'm curious, if you didn't have the 50mm but you had everything else, what would your next lens be? Would it be the 50mm, i.e., the order you have actually done it? Or, would you get the 35mm ...
  • I hadn't even considered the 28mm, but I will. I tend to shoot at longer focal lengths and prefer somewhat tighter crops to more environmental portraits, so even the 35mm seems wide to me (but ...
  • Thanks to both of you. It makes sense that the lenses would overlap too much. I do like the 40mm a lot and don't want to sell it. I took it and a couple other lenses to Disneyland and that was ...
  • Created discussions 40mm pancake vs. 35mm f/2 IS
    I am wondering if anyone can speak to how much these two lenses overlap. Is it pointless to own both lenses? I currently own the 40mm pancake but I want the 35mm f/2 IS. I like the idea of the ...
  • That's interesting...I think that after I got the 70-300 I'd still want the 70-200 2.8 for indoor events like kid's concerts and dance recitals. So skipping the 70-300L altogether (keeping the ...
  • That's what I was thinking, but I was looking for some additional real world opinions/comparisons so I have realistic expectations about the differences between the two lenses.
