Canon EF 35mm f/2

ef35mmf2_1_
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.
Cons:
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!
