I mentioned the 35mm f2 as possible candidates for standard lens. I did not put it on my "favorites" list because I don't own it. I own a Nikkor-O 35/2.0 though, which is nice. But i consider that the thorium 35/2 (concave front) has been overblown. I mean, there are new tests on the 'web out there, where it's compared to the convex front 35/2 and the new FD 35/2 and performance is similar. I CAN BET that the enhanced performance on film is due to the yellowing of the elements, and i would like to see a film teset where the non-concave 35/2 are tested along the concave 35/2 using a strong yellow filter.
