Canon EF 35mm f/2 IS USM Lens Review

ePHOTOzine
5 February 2013
  • Summary: With this lens, Canon have produced something that performs very well indeed, but then you would expect that for the asking price. It may be questionable whether or not having image stabilisation available at this focal length really is a killer feature, as it will really only be of use for...
  • Pros: Good build quality, Image stabilisation, Excellent sharpness, Focuses close, Reasonably lightweight
  • Cons: Reassuringly expensive, No hood is supplied as standard, CA a little high at f/2 and f/22

Canon EF 35mm f/2 (full format) - Review / Lens Test Report

13 April 2009
  • Conclusion: The Canon EF 35mm f/2 is an old lens design but it's still a good one. The center resolution is very high throughout the tested aperture range. The border quality is usable at f/2 to f/2.8 and more than decent from f/4 onwards.

  • Excerpt: Canon offers a pair of 35mm primes in its EF lens range - the EF 35mm f/2.0 and the 35mm f/1.4L USM (£1159). Of the two, the EF 35mm f/2.0 is by far the more affordable, costing £942 less than its L-Series stablemate.

EF 35 mm f/2.0

LensTip.com
23 September 2007
  • Conclusion: Does this lens give us more than just a good equivalent of a kit lens set up at 35 mm? The answer is positive. Although the difference in the middle of the frame is not that great, at the edges the tested lens reaches much better results than zoom lenses.
  • Cons: weak picture resolution near open aperture, large astigmatism, too large vignetting, loud and not very effective autofocus

  • Summary: W zasadzie jedynymi rzeczami, do których można mieć zastrzeżenia są duża dystorsja i ciut za małe pole widzenia okularów. Chciałoby się bowiem, aby sprzęt o parametrach 8x56 miał pole widzenia przynajmniej na poziomie 6.5 stopnia.
