Yeah, I was surprised that the rear element of the 55/1.8 almost sticks out of the baffle ... so much for close angle of incidence causing severe corner issues. Interestingly, the kit 28-70 actually has a much longer distance from sensor to rear element, about a full inch regardless of zoom position (even longer distances at certain FLs actualy). How's the 35/2.8?

I haven't finished testing the 35mm, however the centre is spectacular and the contrast is great even from f2.8


Oops I just meant to ask, how far is the rear element of the 35/2.8 from the sensor?  Same distance as the mount (like the 55) or deeply indented into the lens (like the kit lens)?
