    Loving the Sigma 35mm. I was shooting at 1/640s in a forest... at ISO 200. It's crazy.

    Here's a shot of Bella at a small waterfall, where she was chasing frogs.

    What?!? Why on Earth would you sell THIS lens? It's sharp, even at f/1.4. It focuses pretty darn close. It has nice bokeh. It handle flare well. Admittedly, I haven't tried it on a full-frame body yet... perhaps 35mm doesn't feel nice there... or something...

    But yeah, if 35mm doesn't fit your shooting style, it will just sit on the shelf. You might as well sell it while they're still in demand.

    EF 24-70 II....potential prime killer.

    I went a little nuts trying to solidify my FF "kit." I tried to get the 24-70 II, but ran into a number of issues with copies I received from clicking to bubbles /etc. So I had budget, but no lens. So I decided I would try primes. I first picked up the 35A. Then the 50A was announced and, as I have always like a 50 prime, I ordered it. So, for a brief moment in time, I had decided to go with the 24-105 f/4 and a couple primes as my main kit. But then I saw the refurbished 24-70 II go by on a sale. I let it go by. Then, I saw it again, and let it go by again. Then I saw it a third time on one of those 15-20% off the refurbished price and that was too much, so I picked it up.

    Since, the 35A has sat. I use the 50A on rare occasion. I am actually about to launch a prime vs 24-70 II series of tests to decide if it is even worth having the primes around or if I should sell them off and invest in some other niche. So, there is a chance it stays.

    There is also the issue that 50 mm and 35 mm are fairly close, so I am not sure I can justify both. Also, as I played with the 35A, it was a bit wide for what I wanted (indoor-low light). But I am thinking of it more for an outdoor/nightscape lens and will be testing that out a bit more. Also, your 35 mm on the 7DII is equivalent to 56 mm on FF. So it is more similar to the 50A.

    But...no doubt, crazy sharp lens and don't let any of my machinations keep you from enjoying it. Great piece of glass.

    Sounds like we both wanted the same thing, but for me the 7D2 is the main camera, not my 1Ds2. A 50mm (effective) fast lens. I find that 50mm (80mm effective) is too long* for indoor low-light shooting, which is much like your argument that 35mm feels too wide.

    * Though, I just might upgrade my 50mm f/1.8 for the new STM one. The improved build, bokeh, focus ring, and silent movie AF should more than justify the upgrade cost.

    Other than this should be in a lens thread. I like my 24 and 50 arts for the times I need the low light, the 16-35 is the most common on my camera.

    My shooting breaks out into

    1. wide & outside
    2. long & outside
    3. wide & inside
    4. long & inside.

    for long inside, I go with the 70-200 2.8. I can see the idea of the 24-70 basically replacing the 24 & 50 - I think I like my star pics w/ faster glass for shutter speed considerations.
    If you see me with a wrench, call 911
