Canon EF 35mm f/2

ef35mmf2_1_
Review Date: Jul 31, 2008 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $240.00 | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: image quality, size, weight, price, close focusing distance
Cons:
build quality

This lens is so good with picture quality and size that I had to order it again, after my ex. EF 35/2 got broken.

I made atopsy of that (estimated repair cost beyond lens price) dead lens and found focusing mechanism quite 'plasticky' indeed.

I would not recommend to use any generic filter thread lens hood and would also avoid constant filter swapping with this lens as moving focusing unit is maybe not taking very well all that twisting and front knocks.

I ordered larger Canon hood EW-65 II to better protect lens front and will not use lens while traveling far away...
