Summary: I bought this as my standard lens in 2007. I use it always with the EW-65 II lens hood I had to purchase separately. It is small and light. The quality at f/2 is acceptable - if you happen to hit the focus - see below. It takes very good pictures once you stop it down to f/4.
Summary: I originally bought this lens because a 35mm is the closest you can get to a 50mm full frame equivalent on a Cannon Rebel T3i. I mainly use my camera for portrait work. I also have a Cannon EF50 F/1.4 USM and I have to say that I still like shooting with the 50mm better.
Summary: I was very happy with the performance of this lens on my Rebel XSI. It was great for night shots in Venice! With a small sensor camera like the Rebel, I only wish this lens came in a 24mm variety so that I could take better pictures of our plates across the table at dinner.
Summary: I bought this lens thinking I could match, or surpass the sharpness resolution and contrast range that I get with my 50mm 1.8. Unfortunately I was not as surprised with this lens as I was with the $80.00 50mm. Although this lens is extremely sharp, it is by no means sharper than the 50mm.
Summary: I bought this lens as I wanted a good quality, cheap standard length lens on a 550d. First impressions were really good, compared to other canons of similar price the build quality is good, focus is fast, sharp and accurate and colours etc were lovely.
Summary: The 35mm focal length and wide aperture make this lens ideal for everyday shooting on my Canon 550D, and I have got some nice pictures from it. It's also really small and light, so I'm able to carry my camera virtually everywhere I go, which is a definite advantage.
Great quality, colours are great, but very noisy auto-focus!

Summary: Pros - Very light-weight - Top sharpness - Colours are enhanced beautifully - Has a very clean look to photos - This would be a lens I would keep on my camera for days out and holidays Cons - Auto-focus is extremely loud & noisy, it makes me cringe every time because the sound is horrible - Feels a...
Summary: Married up with a 60D and you have a compact system with great potential, however I was left underwhelmed unfortunately. Undoubtedly a great lens, but I wasn't happy with the colours (compared to my nifty fifty or Sigma 17-70 f/2.8) and the AF is a tad noisy. Going to save up for a 50mm f/1.4 ....
Excerpt: Хорошая светосила и большая ГРИП дают большие возможности, снимал на диафрагмах от 2,5 иногда 2,2. Даже на 2 очень хороший результат, резкость отменная, на то он и фикс. Теперь о плохом. Жужжит ну очень громко.
Summary: Ich wollte diese 35mm, weil mir die 50mm an meiner Canon EOS 450D manchmal doch etwas zu lang wurden (Crop 1.6 = 80mm). 30mm kämen da eigendlich näher ran, die 35mm werden an einer Crop-Kamera wie meiner zu 56mm, 30mm zu ca 48mm. Aber die 30mm Objektive waren mir alle zu teuer.
