Canon EF 35mm f/2

Review Date: Jan 16, 2022 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $500.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Size, focus speed, wide angle
Cons:
None so far

I bought mine from an online reseller at a very reasonable price, LNIB and included the EOM retail packaging, Canon soft lens case and a B+W UV filter.

I bought this not long after I bought an EOS 5D MkII from a forum member. My wife and I went downtown for street photography. She took her Canon refurbished RP and I with the 5D MkII and this 35mm lens.

The images that I took in monochrome are some of the best I've taken. Of course I have to give credit to the equipment as my style and skills are ever improving. The combo camera and lens has rendered some amazing black and white images of our city scape. I usually shoot aperture priority and use a Sekonic meter for shutter speed. Wow!

This lens has become a permanent fixture on my 5D MkII. I cannot imagine using anything else.

Pros: Resolution, ease of use, additional functionality over the 5D.
Cons:
Wished I'd bought one sooner

I bought my copy from a forum member. It included the camera body, BG-E6 vertical grip, two batteries and all the boxes, documentation and accessories that came with it when he bought it new.

It was very gently used and had a very low shutter count. While I am not the photographer my wife has become I feel for my outdoor and cityscape or street photography its a great camera.

I recently bought an EF 35mm F/2 IS USM lens which has become a permanent fixture on the 5D MkII.

I tend to shoot in manual mode and meter using a Sekonic. I mostly film in monochrome which I feel makes for more compelling images.

The prices are dropping on these cameras every day and many have little signs of use and very low shutter count. Get one before they're history.
