Jonathan Brady: I had this lens for a while and just couldn't produce what I wanted out if it in terms of sharpness wide open. It was great at f/2.8 but I wanted to shoot at f/2. I picked up the 35L II and WOW! THAT is what I was looking for. It was sharper (and more consistently focused) at f/1.4 than the 35IS was at f/2.
My experience was inconsistent with what others report so I fully acknowledge that it could have been a bad copy. I'm currently using the 35L II on an A7rii and I'm hoping Zeiss makes a 35/2 lens in the Batis lineup.

I have it for a year now, and I can confirm that it's not tack sharp @2.0. It's acceptable, but it could be a bit better.

KLO82: This or EF 28mm f2.8 IS USM - which one is a better walk around/ general purpose lens on a full frame Canon?

I have the 35 and I'm happy with it. For me, there was not much of a difference between 35mm and 28mm - the larger aperture was more important.

Wild Light: So many of these are soft because of Canons average lenses. For example - 35mm 1.4L II is beyond awesome. 35mm f2 is really terrible. Canon are catching up on their sensors but behind on their lenses which are typically mushy and the reason I left Canon. Would be good to see pictures taken with the Zeiss family of lenses.

Can you back up that 'terrible' statement with some facts? I've been using that lens for 6 months and it's pretty sharp, has nice colors and a pleasing bokeh.

Thank you all for your comments!
Yes, cropping it closer to the subject would surely have worked well. I just wanted to play around with square cropping.

I believe it's an Isetta, it was manufactured by BMW.
