Canon EF 35mm f/1.4L USM

ef_35_14_1_
Review Date: Apr 15, 2009 Recommend? no | Price paid: $1,299.00 | Rating: 8 

 
Pros: small, light weight (compares to my zoom lenses), high contrast
Cons:
35mm FL is not fit into my style of shooting, resolution @ f/1.4 is not as high as my 24-70mm and 28-70mm f/2.8 lens.

I used Air Force 1951 resolution targets tested 3 lenses (aperture fully open~f/2.8, FL @ 35mm) on my EOS 5D at 3 meter away under room light condition.

The results show Canon 24-70mm and 28-70mm f/2.8 lenses are equally good in resolution measurement. Surprisingly, EF 35 f/1.4 prime lens is not as good as the zoom lenses in resolution.

However, EF 35 f/1.4 got the highest contrast score among the three.

I sold the EF 35 f/1.4 the next day on eBay.
