Canon EF 35mm f/2

Review Date: Jan 16, 2007 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 9 

Pros: Sharp as a tack, great contrast,inexpensive,light, and good color.
Af can miss sometimes and can be somewhat noisy. Build quality is poor, manual focus is not easy, though the color is good, it is not of L calibur.

I first started out with the 24-70 L and this thing blows it away. I shot a focus chart at the same F stop and this was way sharper with better contrast and believe it or not brighter. I don't know if the ratings on the the 24-70 were wrong I didn't compare it to a light meter but I think this is more accurate since I don't have to compensate the exposure as much. On my 20D it gives me a nice 50mm effect of a natural field of view. Overall I think it is an excellent buy!
