Canon EF 35mm f/2

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

 
Pros: Great value, fast and sharp for this price..you can't go wrong. Excellent focal length and great for the 20D.
Cons:
Flimsy build, could have been built a lot better. No usm.

I wanted to try a prime 35mm lens. I have the 16-35 2.8L and shot with it just recently and noticed that i really like the 35mm aspect.
So, knowing the price tag of the 35mm f/1.4L ...I opted for this baby..the 35 f/2. I was amazed at it's quality. It rocks and 35mm is such a fun f.l. I enjoy this lens much much more than the 50mm f/1.8.

For th emoney it is excellent and sharp and crisp..even at f/2.0. My only complaint is build quality..I think they cut major corners here and they shouldn't have. They shoudl have kept it as well built as the 85 f/1.8 with USM and all the built quality that is in there.
You can feel the flimsy material used for this lens...but it is fast and works fine. A definite buy for anyone just buying a Canon body.

Pros: Sharp, light weight, good contrast, teh range is superb and comes to make this lens very versatile.
Cons:
f/4 a fast lens in this range would be optimal-or even f/3.5.

A very versatile lens, ccan be a carry on lens. It's weight and size is very friendly. I am happy with it's performance. I can't get into a detailed explanation on actual scientific fundamentals on this lens but I can say coming from a Canon 17-85 EF-S..the 24-105L is a great plus.

Pros: Sharpness, contrast, weight, build quality, USM.
Cons:
f/2.8 at that price would be very nice of Canon ;)

Well now I know why sooooo many people have this lens. It is simply great. Good range-I thought it may be a little short ended but it is not..range is great for PJ style and fun for portariture too. Not as versatiale as my 24-105 but this gem really works well..and it's capability to catch light, color and contrast is unparallel.
Sold the 17-85 EF-S and this baby replaces is it easy.
A great buy.
Cheap price was due to good customer service and satisfaction, moreover, due to good customer appreciation.
Thanks Dove.
