    Oic. I still contemplating whether I shld buy the 35mm one or not. Cos I got the 50mm.. the focal length about 15mm difference.. besides the focal length and wider perspective view.. got other good reasons why I shld buy the lens?

    By the way, anyone knows the battery grip got cover warranty?

    The 50 is good enuf just that the MFD is alittle too far for me to shoot sometimes in tight places. Personally, I have the 35,50,85 primes. BBB virus at work. Different lens for different usage I always believe.

    Battery grip should have warrantry provided it's a local set and not a grey set.

    I believe battery grip falls under accessories, it would not have any warranty. Anyway the chances of a battery grip failing upon new set is almost nil. It is a pure electro-mechanic device
