Re: 2 lenses

The 35f2 is good wide open, and very sharp at f2.2. It works great for close portraits indoors with available light. The focal length is very useful - it is like a slightly long normal lens for film.

It has very fast focus. The focus mechanism is not the latest, but it works very well.

I have other sharp lenses, and there is no lack in this area.

The only possible downside is that highlights in the bokeh is going to be in the shape of pentagrams when stopped down. You get nice round highlights at wider apertures, say f2 to f2.5.

I find it a good focal length for indoor shots, and it is worth more than the price I paid for it.
