I do not like the 35mm f/2.0

on my D800. Not very sharp. I was disappointed with the performance and it does not take advantage of the D800's capability.

I do like the Zeiss 25mm f/2.8 that I am playing with now. The Zeiss 35mm is supposed to be excellent. All Zeiss are manual focus, so that may be an issue for some.
