Well, it's not L glass and it's not Image Stabilized, but it *is* my first lens with a distance scale/DOF indicator. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]



Canon 35mm f/2, equivalent to 56mm on a full-frame 35mm camera. I wanted a prime lens I could use in my studio: I love my 50mm f/1.8, but at 80mm equivalent, it was just a little too telephoto-y. Also, based on my experience so far, a somewhat wider lens will be good for action shots (I want to do more environmentals with all these belly dancers my wife knows. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img])

I read the reviews first and people generally seemed to like it: although one person compared the sound of its non-USM focusing system to "an angry wasp trapped in a can," my particular example seems to be quite well-behaved. For an APS-C sensor, it gives reasonable DOF control, too:



1/80s at f/2, ISO 800. (It's dark in there.)

Any tips or comments based on experience with this lens or general knowledge would be appreciated.

Good for you!! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] Yep,...the 35mm f2.0 is a very inexpensive lens that delivers great performance! I was just using mine today for a commercial job..

What's your next lens..? 85mm f1.8? Trust me,...you'll like that one too..

I find it really Amusing that to the level of person who posts on this board, that lens is "inexpensive." [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] (It's the most expensive lens *I* own.) Not giving you a hard time, it's just funny the difference between this forum and some other ones I read. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

I'm pretty happy with it so far. I took this picture with it:



Along with lots of others. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
