Canon EF 35mm f/1.4L USM

Review Date: Feb 23, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Super sharp, beautiful color, low-light marvel
Cons:
None

Just back from a trip to Grand Canyon, this was my most used lens, from sunset/sunrise, to full daylight.
Frankly, a little surprised to find the "boring" normal focal length ~50mm (35*1,6 on a 20D) to be the most appropriate lens for this landscape, and often chose this prime over 10-22 and 24-105 (good copy).
Came back with 500+ images, more than half shot with this lens, very happy with the results.

Review Date: Dec 15, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,249.00 | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Good walk-around range for daylight shooting, fast AF, sharp
Cons:
A bit pricey

There seems to be som variation in quality of this lens. I had the 1st (flare) generation, and returned it, mainly because I found it soft. My new copy is very sharp.
