Pros: Sharpness, bokeh, color, AF speed, low light accuracy
Cons:
Weight, size, expense

I have owned numerous examples of exceptional Canon and Nikon prime glass. Currently shooting a Canon 5D Mark IV primarily with a 24-70 II zoom lens. The 35L II is exceptional. It's nearly perfect.

Color is awesome - typical Canon with just the right amount of saturation, but not TOO much. Very similar to Portra, which is my favorite film.

Sharpness is insane. I've never seen anything like it. Absolute, critical sharpness at f/1.4. It simply doesn't get sharper than this in my experience. This is aided by exceptional AF performance -- this camera nails eyelashes in low light. AF speed is also excellent.

Bokeh is always a subjective thing, but this lens beats the older 35L. Perfectly smooth and creamy. No complaints there.

This lens is nearly the same weight, length and expense as a 24-70II. It's not as wide which makes it easier to hand hold. It balances beautifully on the 5DIV.

The weight, length and expense issues are made irrelevant by this lens' performance. Absolutely exceptional and the best I've ever used. This lens draws gorgeous pictures and will elevate your photography.
