Anyone here at TPF who has owned both the 35 f/2D and the new 35 1.8G FX would be kind enough to share your thoughts on these two lenses and how they compare to each other? The reason being, I've been looking through my LR library and noticed that my "best" work has been around the 35mm focal length (or 35mm equivalent when I shot crop) so obviously there is something about that focal length I really enjoy, so I'm thinking about picking one up again and ditching my 50mm because let's face it, 50mm primes are really, really over used. It's just a standard lens and it's just getting boring. While I have 35mm covered on my 16-35, it's not all the great being f/4 and I love the sort of 3D effect you can get shooting wide open on a fast 1.4, 1.8 or f/2 with a 35mm lens. It just has a unique style that's different than 50mm and maybe that's why I tend to gravitate to that focal length, even when using a slow zoom. I previously owned the 35 f/2D and I also felt bad selling that lens. I had no complaints, it wasn't perfect optically like the new modern optics, I mean it is showing its age. I sold the lens before the 35 1.8G FX came out and from what I understand the new one is pretty tack sharp. I was considering getting a Sigma 35 1.4, but I don't want to size or weight of the lens. Even though the 35 1.8G FX is little bigger than the 50 1.8G, it's not horrible and it's quite light. The only thing I like about the older 35 f/2D is the compactness of it. But I can look pass it if the optics of the new 35 1.8G FX is significantly better.
