    Hello,
    I'd like to hear from someone who has used both the Canon FD 35mm f2 and the 35mm f2.8. Thanks.

    I have an FD(n) 35 f/2 that is amazingly sharp and spends more time on my F-1 than any other lens I own. I've never tried the 35/2.8 so I can't compare, nor will I get one because the 35/2 is so good. If you could swing the cost of the 35/2 I'd get it over the 2.8, although I'm sure that it's a good performer as well.
