I'm interested to hear people's perspectives on the FD 35/2. I've had one (later model) for a bit over a year now and really haven't been very impressed. I love my 24/2.8, 50/1.4 and particularly my 85/1.8, which are all sharp and contrasty. I've found my 35/2 to be a bit dull and a bit soft in comparison, even stopped down. The lens is well-used and does have a few very faint marks on the rear element (they look more like a smudge - perhaps this is the problem. I've recently picked up a 35/2.8 that I will shoot in comparison. Anyway, I'm interested to hear peoples' thoughts. Thanks.
