Canon EF 35mm f/2

Review Date: Nov 26, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $229.00 | Rating: 10 

Pros: Very sharp, light, fast, and extremely affordable.
Focusing is little noisey (high pitch sound).

Very sharp even when wide open (f2.0). Focuses fast even without USM. Light weight. Great indoor lens on a 5D (both day and night). Colours are good. Almost distortion free images on a 5D. This has become my primary indoor lens for food photography in restaurants (candid reviews) where 99.99% of the time the lighting isn't exactly ideal. Before I got this I was using the 50 f1.8 (minimum FD too long and 50mm not wide enough to capture the whole room) and 17-40L f4.0 (too slow for under ISO400 use and not discrete enough) on a 5D. This 35mm f2.0 will replace both. It's perfect for my purpose. I should have purchased this a long time ago.
