Default First images from new 35mm

Early Christmas, I Just received my new DA 35 f2.4 and here are a few shots around my home town. I haven't had it out at night yet

#2 is an amazing capture. Great eye in order to capture that one.

Beautiful Bokeh on #1. No 2 is an interesting concept. It looks like a crystal from a chandelier was glued to a Faucet. It makes a great picture!

I think you will get a lot of fine pictures from this new lens.

I agree with the previous comments -- it looks like a very nice lens. I also find #2 to be a very interesting image.

Looks like a great lens in some great hands! First two are especially nice color, composition and sharpness. Third (pond scene) seems a little soft or out of focus to my (old) eyes, but it's probably just me...

Could be the forum's software compressing it - it's very hard on pictures. That third one might be soft here but the colors are awesome. Looks like a good lens, bokeh is very nice in the first two. If I had taken the first one with my 35 macro, the bokeh would have been much harsher.

The faucet shot is remarkable. Looks like the new lens is a winner

I must be the only one on the planet who got a bad 35 f2.4. It would not, I mean would not, take a sharp picture. At best, I got slightly blurred. Darn. Sent it back to B&H. I was so looking forward to using it. Happy for you. Enjoy.
