Hey Evin, can you expand on your preference for the 35 2 over the 35 1.4?
I wonder how the incredible portrait lens: Nikon's 135 DC would look on an EPIC!
Old glass ROCKS! Especially on digital. From Nikkors, to Super Speeds, old Russian lenses...so much character...
Speaking of Nikkors...aren't those the lenses used on the original Star Wars special effects shots ("A New Hope", etc)?
I recently eBayed up a 28/2.0 and have been pretty disappointed with it. It didn't have any apparent issues with the glass, even on close inspection, but it's horribly soft even stopped down, highlights blur and bleed, and the color looks pretty anemic compared to my 50/1.4 and 105/2.5. Is this a typical experience for the 28/2.0s or did I just get a bad copy?
Is it clear when you look through it?
Does it rattle inside?
It seems that the lens is broken. Either some oil got on the glass surface or an element is loose and out of place...
Or both, or neither(the last is unlikely)
It's clear when I look through it. I won't be able to check for a rattle until I get home from the office, but a loose element is certainly a possibility. Is it worth sending something like that in for repairs, or should I write it off as a loss?
Check for signs of someone taking it apart.
Now when I think about it it also could be a flipped element due to incorrect assembly after service/ cleaning.
Seen it and done it myself few times
Whelp, sound like there's a loose element in there. Is this something that can be fixed easily, or do I have a paperweight on my hands?
