Excerpt: With the arrival of the Canon EF 35mm f/2 IS USM Lens, the Canon EF 24mm f/2.8 IS USM Lens and Canon EF 28mm f/2.8 IS USM Lens now have another sibling - a big brother. Even before I had a 35 f/2 IS in my hands, I felt like I already knew this lens well as it shares design with these nearly-identical siblings (that I had just-prior reviewed).
Excerpt: This wide angle prime lens from Canon sports a fast maximum aperture of f/2, an ultrasonic focus motor and image stabilisation. This lens is currently available for around £765, which seems a little steep. In this review we'll take a look at whether the performance justifies the price.
Excerpt: The Canon EF 35mm f/2 IS USM lens has a rather narrow focus ring. There are hard stops at both ends of the range, making it easier to set focus at infinity. Polariser users should be pleased that the 67mm filter thread doesn't rotate on focus.
