    "The 12-35mm F2.8 is tiny for a fast constant aperture zoom, but it's worth noting that this comes at the cost of depth of field control compared to similar lenses for larger formats. In terms of DOF and background blur, the lens behaves like a 16-45mm F3.5 lens for APS-C, or a 24-70mm F5.6 lens for full frame cameras. This isn't a bad thing per se; it's simply the compromise you make to gain the extra portability."
