    I know that this isn't the best example, but I will have more later this weekend of people and outside shots.

    What's the distance between Mario and the box? The separation you got at f/1.4 is really nice.

    Even with a crop body, and the the camera a foot from Mario, the DOF would be about 1.2". My 24 mm f/1.4 should be similar on FF (a little tighter). There is actually pretty good DOF at greater distances (which is my norm). You have demonstrated to me that I need to step in closer to get the separation in the shot.

    Beyond the low light shots, I need to get my f/1.4 lens out more often. You have convinced me that I am an idiot for not using it more.

    Off Topic: You made me really want to play some classic Mario Brothers. I don't think I still have my NES. :-(

    It might be the settings in the 7D II, maybe file size, but Mario looks pixelated to me.

    I laughed so hard when I read this. Seriously. :-)

    Sean, I bought Mario for my boys when it first came out. Notice that says 30th on the stand, most likely aniversary. I feel old.
    It took my boys years to figure out why Link was almost solved when they got it for Christmas.

    The Amiibo (the toy) is 7" from the boxes. I love that even the Goomba's on this box have bokeh @ 1.4.

    I noticed that Canon has not published the lens data for this lens in DPP. How long does it normally take?

    Ok...so now we can compared the lenses on the same body:

    35A vs 35L II on the 1DsIII @f/1.4

    35A vs 35L II on the 1DsIII @ f/2

    Vignetting appears to be about the same, but the resolution of the 35 L II is outstanding.

    A quick comparison to two bench mark lenses (comparing wide open):

    200 f/2

    300 f/2.8 II

    Resolution is similar. The 35 L II has more vignetting, but, it is f/1.4.

    It appears it will be sharp wide open.
    Reports so far it will have very nice bokeh.
    It has AF which some of its competitors do not.
    To me it appears to be the best lens in the group now.

    But shouldn't we be complaining because it doesn't have IS?

    I think its time to barter off the old version and order this one.
