My Canon glass isn't so hot on the 1Ds Mk. III...

Re: The natural question, of course, is...

I did factor in the DOF/focal length difference, but I was curious as to what the performance would be like wide open.  While I can get the same DOF (at 3.2 vs. 2.0), I do lose some shutter speed when shooting in the dark.  The corners are also unusable (though the central 50% of pixels are usable).

Again, this is all academic, I understand the 35mm f/2 came out 23 years ago.  Again, it is able to take advantage of the entire sensor at f/8-11, but it is awful wide open.  Just was expecting a bit better.

Hmmmm, 50mm f/1.2L would be nice...
