well, it all depends on how marginal the light is you generally shoot in. I
use it all the time but others might not. D3200 isn't a real 3200, Supra 800
is grainy as hell, provia 400 I haven't tried. But for my standard films
like APX400 I'm glad of the stop. Which isn't for a moment to say the 35/2
asph isn't a world beating lens.
