When I see sample shots of this lens (which I have, btw), I am always dissuaded from getting the 35/2 Asph 'Cron. The Skopar is just superb. My copy is the 'C' version, I think, the one with the OLLUX looking hood and that's just beautiful looking too.
That is why yesterday, I picked up another black paint M4 for just 157k yen. A 35/2 Asph would have cost me a lot more!
