- cosmetically great.
- hood and caps included

Bump for a terrific lens. This is the second prime lens I bought after the FA 50 f/1.4 and I still use it now regularly even though I've acquired quite a few other prime lenses. In fact, it's the only lens that I used while I was in the hospital for the births of both my kids, capturing some outstanding memories. Light and compact, fast and sharp, a wonderful "normal" focal length on APS-C, it's a winner on many levels. A poor-man's FA 31mm for sure, and if I didn't own it, I'd have a much harder time staying away from the FA 31. I just can't bring myself to spend so much on the FA 31 when the FA 35 gives me close to the same image quality as the FA 31, in a lighter and smaller form factor (though obviously the plastic construction can't hold a candle to the superior metal build of the limited lens).

Bump for a great lens!

Spartan, what kind of humidity controlled cabinet do you store your lenses in?
