Got a user condition 35 1.5 yesterday (with a 7S and 100/2) at physical auctions in Paris. Optics are clean but looks batterd.
Tried it on an hybrid camera and must admit I have been really impressed. Really another league than the Canon RF 35 2.8 I had until now.
Even been pleased by performance at full aperture. Creamy bokeh and still very sharp. Whites glow a bit in dark atmospheres but it is more character than a flaw.
Though what is strange is that yesterday aperture was pretty easy to action. It is now quite hard. Not sure what happened as the blades are oil free (unlike my 35 2.8)..
Does someone know if it is difficult to open and fix, knowing that I dont want to touch optics but only helicoid and clean the aperture trigger.. ?
(I have spanner, rubber rings, tweezers, helicoid grease.. as I open SLR lenses I put on my hybrid from time to time..)
