Summary: This will not be a technical review. If you want that, I would suggest you go to http://www.the-digital-picture.com/Reviews/ That is a wonderful site with very honest reviews. Photography has been a passion for over 50 years and I've been very happy for the last four with my equipment.
Excerpt: I purchased this lens because I recently bought a 6D. I already had a 70D in addition to a 70-200 f4 L and a 24-70 f 2.8 L, so basically I am rounding out my kit. I compared the specs of the EF 35 f2 to the 35 1.2 L and really determined that a lot of the features were very similar how ever price...
Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Strong Construction
Summary: There are many reviews by people who know substantially more than I do about lenses, go read those. My simple review is, I went from being very disappointed with my T5i with two "kit" lenses to loving it again by using this as my primary lens.
Excerpt: I have owned several canon primes over the years but this lens does some magic to the image that no other lens did. It is not about one technical detail such as sharpness, contrast etc..the overall result has some magic to it in the way it captures light, the quality of bokeh etc.
L-glass sharpness, fast aperture, and IS at an affordable price

Summary: Amazing lens! I have an EF 17-40mm f/4L which I used a lot for landscape shots. But if I want to shoot something closer, I pull out the 35mm f/2 IS (even though my 17-40 covers that focal length). It captures details and texture in a way that beats my pro, L-glass zooms at times.
Summary: This is an amazing lens, focus accurately and very sharp each time on my 5D mark 2. Light enough to carry all day, all night on a recent beach holiday. It replaced my Canon 24-105L lens as my everyday lens. f/2 is fast enough even on very dim light with enough shutter speed like 1/125s @ iso3200.
