Can anyone show me the non-macro capabilities of the da 35 macro limited?

Hi! I'm considering to buy the da 35 macro limited. It seems to be a great lens at a great price. I've seen many great photos taken with it, but the 99% are macro shots. I'm looking for a "normal lens" that's able to provide great macros when I want it to, but also that can compete with the fa31 limited and the fa 35 f2 in landscape, portrait, and general street photography. Do you think this lens will fulfill my requirements? I've never had a macro before, and I don't know how it behaves in aspects like focusing speed, etc. Do you think it's fast enough for these applications? Finally if you coul post some non-macro photos with this lens I would be really grateful.

check out the long discussions about this lens in

yes mostly macro shots, but there are quite a few non-macro photos as well
if you're going to drop that much money, might as well do all the research possible
