I don't know too much about camera lenses, but I'd have to agree with your friend. I've heard nothing but great things about the 35mm Wide Angle lens from my photographer buddies.
i wish i knew more about photography.. all i have is my stupid $200 digital cam.
same as yossarian. i only got one of those older 200 digital cams. wish i could be more helpful
I'd love to get to know more about this kind of stuff, I'm taking a photography class right now! we're learning about wide scene, telephoto and standard lenses !
Sounds like a solid choice from those I've talked to that sound like they know what they are talking about :D
