Summary: I bought this lens to fall between my 50mm and my 11-16mm lenses (35mm is right in the middle). I use it now as my walk-around lens (it has the field of view of a 56mm lens on a 35mm film camera). I am profoundly surprised by the quality of this lens! The image quality is second to none. The macro abilities are shocking! I always thought you'd need a 180mm Macro to do anything "interesting". But this lens has proven to be a fantastic macro lens!
Summary: Very pleased with the purchase of this lens. I chose it for a long time, watched him and read reviews. but when I tried this lens on the case, the result exceeded all my expectations. Very nice lens, price and quality is very good. lens is very sharp, even at aperture 2.8. A convenient focal length of 35 mm. Plus, everything else has macro mode.
