I’m a bit torn between the two, but the size and price of the 1.2 puts me off a bit. matt 03/04/2009 at 7:06 amThe 35 1.2 is the superior lens by almost any technical metric, but it’s much heavier and larger. The 1.4 flares almost indiscriminately at 1.4, the field is curved, the corners are soft at 1.4 and there’s a load of distortion, but it’s small enough to carry everyday, and the look of the thing is unique. Stop it down to 2.8 or 4, and it’s sharp enough for all normal purposes.FWIW, I can’t see myself buying the 1.2 again. In almost any situation where speed is paramount, the optical shortcomings of the 1.4 are irrelevant.Comments are closed.
