As in the title ! Picked it up after having had it stuck in Wenzhou for a couple of months on it's way to me. So as we were there for business/pleasure I was delighted to while away my time taking snapshots whilst trying to figure out how best to use it

These are more a set of my experimentation in different circumstances than a true depiction of what the LBs are capable of ! I have to say I was really surprised at how sharp they are too, at 1:1 in Aperture they look damn good (when I hit focus of course) !

I have a couple of f1.2 lenses and I look forward to doing side-by-side shots to see what each can do with the same scene/subject.

They can be a lot of fun once you get used to using them. Like images 1 & 2.

Thanks Fletch. Yes, I'm liking it a lot so far. It is in my bag wherever I go now. Fun lens and sharp !

Thanks RB !

I bought the Composer Pro and these were taken with the Sweet 35. I also bought the Edge 80 and Macro convertor ... so more learning fun to be had after I've got used to the Sweet 35 !
