Yongnuo 35mm f/2 Reviews

Version 2.0 is a hit

By Richard
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-05-05

Hard to believe it's not more expensive. It's light and plasticky (but not flimsy), "only" f2, and the autofocus is noisier and slower than a nikkor lens. If that bothers you, by all means spend the extra $$$ on a mainline brand. But if you are a casual shooter wanting to try out a 35mm FX prime, this is definitely the lens you want to put on your camera. IQ will be great as long as you aren't pixel peeking or cropping like crazy. FYI 1 : This version (2.0) of the lens DOES have a 58mm diameter (btw, the pdf user's manual on the webpage as of this date, May 4, 2022, is for the older 1.0 version, and so incorrectly indicates a 52mm diameter). FYI 2 : this lens does NOT come with a hood, so you might want to order one at the same time as the lens. On the plus side, it does not have the plastic film over the lens that some of the online reviews complained about.

Disappointing Newer Version

Disappointing Newer Version I confused this with one they made a few years ago that had a lot of good samples on Flickr. This is not the same lens. It's fine for anything a for to three or so feet away but is quite soft compared to an old Vivitar I have. I just live without auto focus for now until someone makes a decent 35 for a decent price. Not holding my breath.

Not 100% EOS compatible

While this lens is good for the price, it is not compatible with some older film EOS cameras. The problem seems to lie in the focusing protocol this lens uses.

Pleasantly surprised by this lens!

This lens is so a so much affordable version than the other brands, and it does the work perfectly. I was hesitant to purchase it but a friend of mine gave it a shot and I had an opportunity to try it before buying it. I'm an amateur photographer and I was looking for a lens that would allow me to blurry the background and this lens does the work. The photos are sharp and the colors are amazing.

I can’t say with 100% certainty, because I haven’t tried, but there’s no reason why it shouldn’t. Worth buying the lens either way in my opinion. The price to quality can’t be beat. Great lens!

The lens has no connection points for a hood other than the filter threads. The only way to use a hood with this lens is to use something that attaches to the filter threads.

Will the autofocus and image stabilization work with an adapted canon m50?
Asked by: Rodolfo
The Yongnuo YN 35mm f/2 Lens for Canon EF will Autofocus on that camera when using the proper adapter. The Canon EF-M Lens Adapter Kit for Canon EF / EF-S Lenses linked here will be a good adapter for this. https://bhpho.to/2PtpkBU. This lens is not a stabilized lens and so will not have image stabilization when used with or without an adapter.

How well does this work for shooting the Milky Way? Compared to the Canon 50mm f/18?
Asked by: Kevin
The 35mm focal length is a better lens for astro, the low light capability compared to the 50mm 1.8 is negligible. A lens with a faster aperture would be ideal, like an f/1.4. Rokinon/Samyang make good fast primes that aren't too expensive.

Yes. It projects a full frame image that is large enough for 35mm film and all Canon EOS cameras have electronic communication between camera and lens.
