Darn it... I had to reply... couldn't resist the temptation 35L is the most precise and simple way to refer to that particular lens. I think everyone agrees that people boasting about their very expensive equipment being yadda yadda which is sooo much better than yiddi yiddi are rather annoying. This wasn't a case of such though. Quod erat demonstrandum. Do you feel like snipping away your rant? (which would fit better in a new thread along with this reply ) All meant in the best of intents.
