A sleek wide-angle prime designed for Canon EF-mount DSLRs, the YN 35mm f/2 Lens from Yongnuo pairs the popular 35mm focal length with a bright f/2 maximum aperture to suit working in a variety of situations. Multi-coated glass elements reduce the effects of lens flare and ghosting for greater contrast and maintained color accuracy. An AF/MF switch on the lens barrel permits quick switching between focusing methods, and the lens can focus as closely as 9.8" to suit photographing close-up subjects. While compact and lightweight in design, a metal bayonet lens mount ensures a secure, durable connection between the camera and lens and gold-plated contacts permit working with all exposure modes as well as transferring lens information to the EXIF data. A tried-and-true lens construction with design enhancements to benefit handling, this lens is an ideal walk-around lens for everyday shooting.

Yongnuo 35mm f/2 Reviews
Version 2.0 is a hit
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.

Each time I use it, I learn more and try new things. Great results so far.
It's very similar to the 50 mm
