Re: Which prime lens would be your pick in the 28-35mm range?

I have the zeiss 25/2 and the canon 35/1.4L
For landscapes I choose the zeiss, the micro contrast, colour & sharpness are outstanding, and beautiful blur.

It is not too wide for people shots

The canon 35/1.4L I use for people shots in groups, where the AF is useful.
It has pretty good colour & micro contrast.

Not a chance.
Get the zeiss 25/2, it will last you a life time & you will love the results every time you use it.
