Fine Lens - Requires you to use your camera's Peri

Great Dane, Canon
25 March 2015
  • Excerpt: Picture quality and sharpness is much better than expected based on the MTF Chart. Suitable, at large aperture, for indoor photos of moving objects that require fast shutter times. Short minimum focal length, fast USM, and very effective IS make this an ideal "Grandkids" lens.

a great alternative

Viktas, Canon
16 October 2013
  • Excerpt: I really like this lens's size, weight, fast f/2 and IS. Too many people want only f1.4 but most use these lenses steped down to f/2 any way because of depth of field. Especially in tight quarters like indoors. and for portraiture.
  • Pros: Fast auto-focus, Superior build quality, Super-sharp images

An All the TIME lens

Jennifer L. Ostrander "Lildevil_JLO", Amazon
13 August 2013
  • Summary: I have this on my camera almost ALL the time now, it is my go to prime. I had the 50 mm, I hated it, I mean I loved the photos but I was always too close and indoors forget it I couldn't get anything more than a persons face in the frame. Beautiful bokeh, I'll leave the tech reviews to the experts.

Finally!

Lurcus, Canon
27 May 2013
  • Excerpt: That's the lens I've been waiting for, for so many years! A 35mm fast lens, with a very good build and optical quality, with an efficient stabilizer and a fast, nearly silent AF. A dream came true. After a few weeks with this lens, I immediately sold my 35/1,4 L.
  • Pros: Fast auto-focus, Superior build quality, Super-sharp images
  • Cons: no tropicalization, no lens hood included

Great all around lens

Kevin, Canon
19 January 2013
  • Excerpt: I like the lens very much for general shooting purposes. It seems to be average in a lot of qualities; not excellent or terrible in any aspect. For low light or close focusing the IS is a great feature. The lens is light weight, and the manual focus ring is much more dampened compared to the 35L.
  • Pros: Fast auto-focus, Super-sharp images, low ca, great for low light
  • Cons: doesn't come with l series accessories
