Re: I love my new XF 35mm 1.4

I think I would have probably been happy with either of these lenses, as they each offer their own particular strengths/advantages. That's why it took me so long to decide. Ultimately, the price at my dealer's weekend event was a more substantial discount off the f/1.4 than the f2.0 lens, so that pushed me over the edge! I already have 23mm f2.0 and 50mm f2.0 lenses, so now I have one lens with a wider available aperture. The 35mm f1.4 build quality is fine, although the hood and rubber cap design is a little quirky. The lens doesn't seem all that noisy to me and it seems to focus fast enough for my needs.  Some folks around here make a big deal out of these characteristics, but I have no problem with these.  I've only had it a couple of days, but so far it seems like a really nice lens.

I too am considering buying this lens. What made you buy the f1.4 over f2?
