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.
Summary: Canons 35mm F2.0 er bare en enkelt blender tregere enn toppmodellen, som byr på blender F1.4, og da det samtidig har innebygd bildestabilisering, som kan redde rundt tre eksponeringstrinn, vil det i mange tilfeller klare seg bedre i svakt lys enn den over dobbelt så dyre storebroren. Selv om det er langt billigere, jobber det bra i forhold til de dyrere toppmodellene allerede fra F2.0, og rundt F5.6 er det en anelse bedre.
