Re: Is this redundant?

My own thoughts are the 35mm is a brilliant walk around lens, the f1.8 allows a real extension for the cameras low light abilities. Close up this lens is sharp, possibly too sharp at F4 and above for beauty portraits close ups, it shows every blemish.

As a walk around it gives great detail. People talk about softness at higher apertures, but it depends on the subject being shot, bright, reflective surfaces will show purple fringing at f1.8. Try it at each f stop and see, but skin, fur, trees on normal prints it is not evident.

I really rate the 35mm. The 30mm Macro less so, personally I found the focus range to close for insects and animals better an 85mm.

Either way I would try them out, give them a good workout, there are plenty of people out there who will buy then off you should they not suit.
