    Picked this up on thru craigslist couple days ago. Played around with it over the weekend. So far I'm really liking it!
    They were all shot at 1.7. No post processing...shot in jpeg and straight to Flickr. Love the vivd colors and sharpness I'm getting with this lens. Any and all CC welcomed and appreciated!

    It's plenty sharp. Great series.

    Not as sexy as the 35/1.4, but I think it may be a better lens for general use. I wish you guys would quit this, I have enough CV lenses already. :rofl:

    Honest question: Why do you think so?

    No personal experience, but from what I've read the 35/1.4 is prone to flare and has low contrast compared to other 35s. It isn't sharp to the edge of the frame either, but if you need the speed... you probably don't care. ;)

    Those are nice!!! Very good performance shot wide open and personally I love the bokeh characterist it gives ;)

    Hey thanks, I saw that review but was hoping for some samples on the 7ii or 7rii... looks like the minimum focus distance is shorter than the original also... I have the sigma 351.4 but it's big, I was looking for a similar result with a smaller lens. Any suggestions?

    My shots are on A7R II with Hawk's close-up adapter. Normally mfd is 50cm~1.6 ft and drops to 30cm~1 ft range with the adapter. Now I use the techart af adapter which does the same. I did a comparison, but without exif the photos will be a guess. Sigma 35mm should be better on the corners, but the size and mfd makes CV 35mm a very good option. I ordered from UK due to price difference. The other options are CV 35mm 1.2 ver I/II and ZM 35mm 1.4 that are bigger in size. Another comparison which might help you:

    Thanks! I think I may try it after I unload a couple more lenses. I had the 35 1.2 v2 but I sold it. I just couldn't find it usable before f2. I may have had a bad copy. I've been using the 40mm ultron f2, I like it a lot, sharp and compact but I really wanted a 35. The sigma is really great but it's big. The manual focus is kinda tough on it.
