Re: just came back from a 2 week trip through South East Asia

With the 35mm I use manual focus the whole time as in most cases using the AF-L button gets focus bang on with little manual adjustment needed, works like back button AF on my 5diii which I like. How does the 14mm manual focus compare with this? Also do you miss the 1.4 or is 2.8 ok for you on the wider lens?

With the 14mm you can use zone focusing. This is much better than messing around with AF or manual focus. In good light you simple set aperture at f8 or f9 and infinity ( focus scale ) to f8 or f9 and everything will be in focus.

f2.8 is not a problem. I try to use f8 if possible but I also took some images at f2.8. Limited DOF images is something you can't do with an 14mm lens anyway.
