Lol.... ;) For what I paid for the 1.1 I think that will stay in my arsenal whatever platform I decide to use..

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

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.

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 :)
