Petite, light & nimble

P.K. Frary "Gochugogi", Amazon

  • Summary: The EF 35 2.0 is considered semi-wide lens (63 degrees) on full frame cameras, e.g., 6D, and normal on APS-C, e.g., Rebel SL1. I find it ideal on my 6D for family snapshots and walking around the neighborhood. Sixty-three degrees is perfect for showing a subject in its natural environment.

An All the TIME lens

  • 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.

Primes are indeed superior

Faith, Amazon

  • Summary: Every great image has two things in common...a good photographer and even better glass. This lens has been a beautiful addition to my collection. With one exception, It's been the only lens on my body since I got it and I've taken about 250 shots with it since getting in on the 11th.

Nice step up from the "Nifty Fifty"

J. Edge, Amazon
12 April 2013
  • Summary: I went a head and got this lens after I found my self not having enough space to shoot my son with the 50. You don't always have that extra step or two to move back. I've been presently surprised this far. Besides having more room to operate, the lens is quite sharp and colors vibrant.

A MUST HAVE!

BESS, Amazon

  • Summary: Ive been doing photography for a couple years now. I have a zoom lens, 50mm, and the kit lens my camera came with. 75% of the time my 50 is on my camera. But I found myself struggling with finding enough room indoors with this lens.

Amazing!

  • Summary: I use this entirely for DSLR video and I love it! It's very sharp and colors look amazing. It gets kind of soft when it's wide open, but I would still prefer it over the Canon 16-35 any day!

Accessory lens that's now always on my camera

  • Summary: This lens is great. It's my first venture into more expensive glass - yes, I know there's much better and much more expensive glass than this - and it turns out great color and excellent detail every time.

Great Lens!

Angie K, Amazon
10 January 2013
  • Summary: I got this lens after finding that my 50mm was just too tight indoors. I was always limb chopping my daughter's photos because I had no room to get it all in! This lens is perfect! And super sharp! I have a Canon Rebel T3 (crop).

Perfect lens for APS-C (crop factor) cameras!

L. R. Jackson, Amazon
4 January 2013
  • Summary: I bought this for my T3i after getting frustrated with the 50mm feeling too "zoomed in" at times. The viewing angle on this thing feels perfect, but without too much bulging distortion. I was leery of the price tag in comparison to the 50mm f/1.8, but this one is much higher quality than the 50mm.
