202/265: 35 1.8

[portfolio_slideshow: thumbs; true]

We’ve been having a discussion on ClickinMoms about using the 35 1.8 on a full-frame camera. I’d never even contemplated doing so, because the 35 1.8 is a DX lens and is “meant” to be used on a crop sensor. However, except for some heavy edge vignetting I’m really pleased with how it performs on my D700. I’ve been drooling over a wide angle lens for months now, and so it is exciting to have a temporary solution to my “need.”

    I was just reading about this yesterday. Glad it works for you! I’m trying to stick to FX lenses just in case I go full frame in the future, but it’s really tempting to grab one of these because they’re so inexpensive. Think the 35 will make it’s way into your camping bag? :bats eyelashes:

    Interesting! I have the Tamron zoom, which I need to sell bc I seldom pull it out, but I get some really heavy vignetting on it as well on the wide end. To some extent, I get vignetting on the others too, but I don’t mind it. Hmm. Thanks for making my wish list longer….:)
