A modern day update to a versatile, compact and lightweight wide-angle lens, the EF 35 mm f/2 IS USM is incredibly bright and offers image stabilization, superb image quality and construction perfect for use on any EOS digital camera.

Product Reviews
Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 10reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Unmatched clarity and color This lens is simply amazing. The only advantage the L lenses have on this lens is the weather sealing and that's never been a problem.The auto focus is fast, the IS helps and it's a great lens for low light.Where this lens is amazing is the sharpness, clarity and the colors it produces. Colors just pop. I haven't noticed the vignetting others mention but, as they say, that's easily correctable. Images are sharp to the edges and I'm definitely going to start using this lens more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Outstanding Features Since I am a professional photographer, I must be able to count on my lenses to produce excellent images under wide-ranging conditions. Outstanding optics, robust and durable build quality are givens for me.This particular lens, however, has a couple feature which make it the best 35mm available for my work. Having such a wide aperture (f/2.0) allows me to shoot many events without flash! That can be big to my clients. Also, having IS at this (kinda-wide) focal length gives me distinct advantages: (1) it plays into the non-flash event scenario. (2) it makes a wonderful lens for video.Additionally, I can get beautiful short DOF shots with this baby. It's almost like a little brother to my 85mm f/1.2.If you have a need for 35mm (who doesn't?), this one rocks! May 1, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fine Lens - Requires you to use your camera's Peri Picture quality and sharpness is much better than expected based on the MTF Chart. Suitable, at large aperture, for indoor photos of moving objects that require fast shutter times. Short minimum focal length, fast USM, and very effective IS make this an ideal "Grandkids" lens. Fine detail for outdoor/landscape photography. It is important that you use your camera's Peripheral Illumination Correction as otherwise you will see significant vignetting. This being a newer lens, you may have to first update your version of EOS Utility in order to register the lens' Peripheral Illumination Correction Data. Do buy the original Canon Lens Hood - some aftermarket products simply do not work well on this lens. March 25, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best all purpose lens I recommend this as the best Canon lens for anytime anywhere photography. If you are confused of which lens is the most suitable for you, anytime and anywhere, especially if you own a full frame, this is your best choice. If you are beginner or hobbyist, this lens brings the best in you. The lens is very sharp and fast. Only draw back I see is the vignetting. January 10, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by APS-C Natural Beauty I only use prime lenses. I purchased this lens specifically for high quality natural perspective landscape photography on my APS-C sensor EOS SL1 Rebel. I am so happy with the quality of photos I'm getting from this lens. It really deliverers the goods. I will note that I always use this lens on a tripod and per Canon recommendation I disable the image stabilization to optimize quality. I was originally using an EF 28mm F/1.8 lens. It was a good lens but not good enough. The 35mm F/2 is noticeably superior optically for my type of photography.. Very little corner softening and very little distortion. As a landscape photographer, large aperture performance is of minimal interest to me. I need long depth of field when composing with up close foreground. I typically only shoot at apertures ranging from f/10 to f/18. Edge to edge image sharpness is clean and consistent across the sensor in that range. Quality drops off a bit after f/16 but not enough to overly annoy and noticeably less then the EF 28 F/1.8 lens. F/11 to F/14 is very good. Equivalent focal length on the 35mm F/2 after the 1.6 crop factor on APS-C is 55mm. That's just about perfect. The overall gain in image quality from the EF 28mm F/1.8 mostly comes down to the simple fact of being less of a wide angle lens. 35mm is a clean solid performing focal length. In my opinion, a 35mm lens is the best choice for quality natural perspective images on APS-C. Overall lens performance is not far off from using a 50mm lens on a full frame format. It's about as close as you’re going to get. If your serious about natural perspective photography on APS-C, do not hesitate to purchase this lens. By the way.. The hood for this lens if wonderful! Its expensive but worth it. Velvet lined, great coverage, and a sweet new locking mechanism. January 6, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by super good lens for the money This lens was a great buy. I love it. It captures a lot. its compact size makes it versatile and light. the glass is great. canon did a good job. December 26, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by a great alternative I really like this lens's size, weight, fast f/2 and IS. Too many people want only f1.4 but most use these lenses steped down to f/2 any way because of depth of field. Especially in tight quarters like indoors. and for portraiture. with lens correction software like LightRoom distortion is not a issue. Neither is the strong vigneting at f/2 because of the post vignete tools in LightRoom. I love the color rendition or color out put from this lens, its just simple lovely. crisp and clean. I use this lens on my 5Dmk3 and Eos-M. Just test the lens for your self and you will see what I'm describing here. October 16, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Finally! That's the lens I've been waiting for, for so many years!A 35mm fast lens, with a very good build and optical quality, with an efficient stabilizer and a fast, nearly silent AF. A dream came true.After a few weeks with this lens, I immediately sold my 35/1,4 L. Image quality is at the same level, but now I have a stabilizer and faster AF. Obviously I lost the f/1,4 and I have more vignetting until f/4, but... I can deal with that.Downsides?- Strong vignetting until f/3.5 (still visible after that, but not so annoying).- No tropicalization.- Despite the price, no lens hood included... as usual.If this lens had less vignetting wide open and a water/dust/moist/all-weather protection, it would be just perfect.Waiting for a 35/1,4 L IS with improved image quality, IMHO that's the best 35mm in the Canon lineup.
