    Well, my Nikkor-O 35/2 is no contender for small size and light weight compared to my Nikkor 3.5cm F1.8 for the Nikon RF's!

    I like the Canon 35/2.8 on a Leica CL for a setup. The combo is about the same size and weight as my Nikkor-UD 20mm F3.5.

    I like 35mm too, however on my R2 I was finding my CV35/2.5PII a little wider than the framelines than I liked so I opted for the 40mm 1.4 Nokton instead on the same body. I really wanted to keep the pancake, but I'm just too anal about those sort of things

    It lets you move a step or two closer to the subject than the 50mm and gives a nice working distance between the subject and the shooter.

    This is a quick snap of my wife with the Zeiss Ikon with the 35mm. I find this lens length the most natural with a rangefinder camera.

    Most likely about F5.6. Shot on XP2 and scanned from neg.

    I suppose if I were limited to one lens, it would probably be my 35mm 'cron on my M7. But for street shooting I prefer a longer FL, like the 50mm, and I'm really lusting after the 75mm 'cron. Someday.

    BTW, you didn't request a critique, but I'll volunteer the following. The image appears to be overly sharpened. I would also have bumped up the contrast and chose a different black point from the image.

    BTW2, I've decided that XP2 400 will be my standard. I like the way it scans, and I like the convenience of the C41 process and Digital ICE.

    Here is a shot on XP2 with the 90mm 'cron:

    I think the 35 is to take a picture of a person in their environment and the 50 is to take a picture of a person.

    I prefer a 50 (and would honestly prefer the 75mm more) but often use a 35 for depth of field and angle of view considerations. The 35 is just such a damn versatile lens.

    One aspect of the 35 that I don't like is that it gives you a point and shoot look (maybe I should call that a view camera look, so as not to denigrate our equipment), i.e., everything is in focus near to far. Using the lens wide open helps in that regard.

    Take care,
    Tom

    I qute a newcomer into street photography, but figure I prefer this kind of shooting with 50mm rather then 35mm FL, often I do with 90mm as well. 50mm is glued to my M6, while 90mm is one to shoot through on my M3.
    Having said that, shooting indoors (family, friends, etc...) I often notice 50mm is a bit too long forcing me to back off for beter composition, so I figure 35mm FL for indoors would probably be more convenient. Also, chances I'd prefer 35mm FL for urban architecture (as opposite to 50mm/90mm combo for street life)...
    Probably time will come soon to consider 35mm ZM Biogon...

    I have 35mm and 75mm for my Bessa R2A, and I find myself more and more to use 75mm, in last few weeks I used it more than 35mm. For street life. I guess it is not lens issue but personality issue, I still think if I get myself with 35mm in front of someone face, I will be in truble... Not happened so far, but when one have low confidence in himself, then... But, then again, I recently photographed mostly social life around one mosque, and tried to keep respectfull distance between me and subjects, especially females, so I used mostly 75mm. Not that I hide myself, they see me photographing them, but I don't want them to feel like I am invading their private space.

    But, 35mm is much easier to use, focus and compose than 75mm for me, even if I find it little small (PII version).

    So, 75mm for cowards and 35mm or wider for brave photographers, I guess

    You can have a pretty good day shooting with just the 35mm & 75mm on a rf.

    Actually, you can have a pretty good life shooting with just the 35mm on a rf. If I could have only one camera and one lens, that's what the combination would be. For 35mm photography I very rarely use anything longer than 50 or shorter than 28, and I use the 35 focal length more than all others combined.

    Seconded. My ideal combination: 35 Summilux on one body, 75 Summicron on the other.

    Wish I could afford 2x MP to put 'em on.

    Let me voice a different sound. I don't like 35mm at all. I prefer 50mm, and like 25mm when the situation calls for wiiiiide.
