Re: Best bargain, best value

I have the 35f2 and it is a very sharp lens. The 35L is better at larger apertures. Once you are at f2.8, the two lenses will be hard to tell apart.
The 35f2 has fast and accurate AF, and is sharp at f2 - even better at f2.2.

It does have a fault. It does not do well shooting into the sun. The solution is to avoid this, or you will have lots of flare.
It is a fine lens.

If you don't mind the extra cost and weight, the Sigma 30f1.4 might be worth a try, but be sure to buy from a place with a good return policy.
