I have a greatly finely detailed shot of Lake Silverwood in the San 
Bernardino mountains (that I can't find at the moment) taken with the 35/2.8 
@ f8 that really surprised me with the detail and contrast. But I will take 
the Pentax 645 45mm/2.8 over it any day. For what I shoot (slides on Velvia) 
the larger format always lets me print bigger. It the subject matter has 
strong graphic aspects and strong color, then 35mm is fine. But for landscape 
for some reason, when there are finely detailed conifers, grassed, detailed 
sand grains, texture on rocks, etc. ,only a larger format will work well.
