Re: Which Prime?

I don't have the 35/2 but I do have the 50/1.8 MkI which has the same AF mechanism and this is certainly a weak point. It's noisy and of course it's not USM so no full-time manual.

What I do have is the Sigma 30/1.4 which I narrowly chose over the 28/1.8 mainly because it's faster. I've been very happy with it, but I don't think you can go much wrong with either.

The 35/2 does win on close focusing though: 0.23x vs 0.18x (28/1.8) vs a very poor 0.10x (30/1.4).
