    Hi noodlehaus! great shots..! I love the composition of the second picture

    I am still deciding between this and the 40mm f1.4.. the 180 bucks difference keeps making me sway towards the 40mm.. and I really think I have no preference between 35mm and 40mm focal length. Care to sway me one way or the other? :smile:

    Hi apt! I'm not really the guy to ask but the dealer himself told me why not just get the 40mm. I didn't really had an answer :p

    Now thinking about it, I could've just picked up the 40mm and the 15mm heliar. The total comes pretty close.

    bump :smile:

    Same, I'm also having problems picking between the 2 lenses, from what I've seen both lenses are excellent and the results are very similar, pretty much indistinguishable to my eyes.

    Part of me is leaning towards the 35mm, as I want to get the Pana-leica 45mm later and will give me more of a difference in focal lengths, but then the lower price of the 40mm is a big point to... decisions decisions :frown:

    I love the bokeh on the CV Noktons - just look at the 1st picture in the thread

    So, any input on the 35mm 1.4 vs the 40mm 1.4 would be appreciated

    Vinechau, Remember the 2x crop... The 40 will be an 80... The 10mm is a big deal..

    A yeah, Ahuyevshi pointed out that same thing to me as well when I was asking, the 5mm difference becomes 10mm with our cameras.

    vincechu, I was reading another forum about this.
    Basically they were saying that the 35mm f1.4 has more barrel distortion than the 40mm f1.4, which can be pretty obvious if you're taking pictures with lots of straight lines. Other than that, it's mostly just focal length differences...

    The barrel distortion of the CV 35/1.4 should be less of a factor with MFT than with 35mm film.

    Members are welcome to link to another forum any time. Our strategy is to keep members coming here by making sure mu-43 is a great place, not by pretending that other forums don't exist :smile:.

    thanks ahuyevshi, noodlehaus apt-efx and amin for the input, I guess the information you've all provided has swayed me towards the 40mm 1.4. But I'll try and find a CV dealer and take an adaptor with me and try both before deciding. If I need any more advice and opinions I'll start a new thread, don't want to hijack this one ;-)

    Thanks again :)

    This thread needs more pictures! I rented the CV 35mm f1.4 for the weekend and headed to a pumpkin patch. Here are some shots at f1.4, f2 and f2.8. Very minimal processing (RAW + Huelight GF1 LR profile + manual WB) so you can get a feel for how this lens behaves. You can kind see some of the swirly bokeh behavior in the OOF areas. It's very sharp when stopped down.
