    looks pretty good imho, if there was a bit more depth on the face it might be nice but I like how it draws the attention to the eye. Nice colors

    I'm thinking of getting the 24 f2.8! 35 is too close to the 50. But if I find one cheap enough, I'd jump on it too.

    If I had ff I would stick with the 50 but the 35 f/2 was my favorite lens since I was used to a 50mm on my film camera

    Yea i'm loving the 35mm. :hs: I'd like to play with one. Not sure which would be more enjoyable or get more use, the 50mm or the 35.

    It's pretty much at the top of my dowant list. I wish there was an inexpensive 24mm prime.
