Yes, that's exactly the thing with lenses like the 75, there is this something... a special rendering - so, is it better to take a few magic photos or lots of 'meh' ones?

There is nothing "meh" about the 35-100. I bought it instead of the 75mm because of the flexibility of a zoom. It is optically at least as good as Canon's 70-200 f/4 L IS, which is an excellent lens.

I had the Canon 135 f/2 during my Canon days, did not use it a lot, but always got outstanding photos with it...

Same here. I had the 135 f/2L and amost always went for the 70-200 L. Flexibiity.


My head says the 35-100, the heart says the 75 - that's what this internal struggle is about

thanks... all of you guys
