Canon 35mm f/2.8 overview

  • 1Description

Characterized by its unique design and close-up capabilities, the EF-S 35mm f/2.8 Macro IS STM from Canon is a 56mm-equivalent prime lens designed for APS-C-format DSLRs. Offering a life-size 1:1 maximum magnification and a 5.1" minimum focusing distance, this lens further distinguishes itself with an integrated Macro Lite LED on the front of the lens to provide additional illumination to close-up subjects. Aiding its ability to reproduce small subjects at life size, the optical design incorporates one aspherical element to reduce spherical aberrations in order to provide a high degree of sharpness and clarity.

Benefitting the optical attributes is a Hybrid IS image stabilization system that serves to minimize the appearance of camera shake for sharper results when working handheld and in difficult lighting conditions. A lead screw-type STM stepping motor also benefits handling by producing fast, smooth, and quiet autofocus performance to suit both stills and video applications. This AF motor can be manually overridden at any time by turning the dedicated focusing ring for making fine-tuned adjustments.

Standard macro prime designed for APS-C-format EF-S-mount Canon cameras, this lens offers a 56mm equivalent focal length.
One glass-molded aspherical element is featured in the optical design to control spherical aberrations and deliver a high degree of sharpness and clarity.
Maximum 1:1 magnification and a minimum focusing distance of 5.1" permits making life-size imagery of close-up subjects.
Built-in front-facing Macro Lite LED can be used to produce additional illumination to subjects when working at close distances. The light can be configured to illuminate only the right or left side, or both sides, and the brightness can be adjusted in order to produce greater visual depth and reduce shadows caused by the close proximity of the lens to the subject.
Hybrid IS image stabilization minimizes the appearance of camera shake for sharper imagery when shooting handheld.
Lead-screw-type STM stepping motor offers fast, quiet, smooth, and accurate autofocus performance that is ideal for video recording as well as still shooting.
Full-time manual focus mode (AF+MF) lets you instantly switch to manual focus control in AF mode for making fine-tuned adjustments.
Rounded seven-blade diaphragm and bright f/2.8 maximum aperture help to render smooth and pleasing bokeh to benefit shallow depth of field imagery.

Canon 35mm f/2.8 reviews

EF-S 35mm f/2.8 Macro IS STM Lens is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 20.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from A wide-angle macro lens takes some getting used to I love macro photography. My Canon 60mm macro has been my guide to the small for the past few years. Based on the success with my current lens, I wanted to see what a 35mm Macro could do. It sees differently, more like a landscape view and with a little more depth. I find that I can get nice results with focus-stacking only 5 images where the 60mm might require 10 or 15 images. Image stabilization doesn't seem to make much difference, so a tripod is needed to get sharp results. The 2 images below compare the 35mm with the 60mm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Use this lens to digitize your old 35mm slide transparencies I pre-ordered this Canon 35mm lens because I wanted a macro lens to take indoor close-up photos of small objects. I don't believe this lens will be very useful outdoors to take insect photos, because the working distance is so small. I have used a Canon 70-200mm lens with a 500D Close-up lens to take outdoor photos of flowers. As I was waiting for this Canon lens delivery date, I discovered (at B&H) a small device made for a Nikon Macro lens called the ES-1 Slide Copier. I have over 1500 35mm color slides that are more than 18 years old. I was seeking a way to digitize these color slides and store them in the Lightroom image Library on my computer. I tried a Wolverine Film-to-Digitial Converter, but was unhappy with the results. The color output was not very good, and the output images were JPEG files. I contemplated purchasing an image scanner, but good, high quality ones were rather expensive and I would have no use for it after the slide conversion project was completed. Paying a professional slide digitizing service would have been VERY expensive. Using my new Canon 35mm Macro lens and a 49mm to 52mm step-up ring with the Nikon ES-1 and a (new) small portable LED light was the perfect solution for slightly over $100. (not counting the cost of the Canon lens and camera.) I am using a small Canon camera (SL1) mounted on a mini-tripod with the ES-1 attached to the macro lens. The camera is pre-focused using back-button focusing (same for all slides). The ES-1 is taped to the 35rmm lens hood so there is no slide rotation, and it is quick and easy to make digital images of the slides. The RAW files are then transferred to Lightroom on my computer using the SD card from my camera, and any color modifications can be done easily as a batch process in Lightroom. Each digitized image has a small black border on all sides, but this is easy to remove by cropping in Lightroom. I am very pleased with this purchase and my newly-found use for this lens.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fine lens at a bargain price. An almost perfect macro lens for my Canon 7D. For critical work I'd still turn to a 5DS with 100mm macro, but this lens will work for 95% of ordinary copy and closeup work, and is a lot easier to use. Best feature is the image stabilization; it works really well. I don't have to use a tripod for closeup work anymore. The lens is sharp, compact, and a bargain. Loses a star because the light is not a ring light.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Lens - Macro and General Purpose Great macro and general purpose lens. Easier to use than ext. tubes. See attached photo you be the judge.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good lens at a great price. Does many duties very well. I have used this lens for several days and it does not fail to amaze me the level of sharpness. It is not a fast focus lens; however, it does focus well and it is very useful photographing portraits, some street landscape and some decent macro captures. I believe it is money well spent, and if you have young photographers at home it may very well be their favorite lens. I have not used the light up front the lens. Indeed a fabulous lens and it has my recommendation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Detailed Lens - Great The Clarity of the lens is awesome. I received the lens a couple of hours ago and so far I'm impressed. The focus range to get really close is great. I'm not sure how much the light on the front lens helps, maybe in darker situations or to add highlights. Maybe Macro lenses in the L range would be better but this is great for the price. I think you can get some professional quality shots out of this lens.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sharp lens with great IS for hand held shots Lens arrived this week and I'm really happy with the quality of the photos. Works great as a standard 35mm prime and the macro capability is outstanding. IS makes it easy to get hand held shots even with slower shutter speeds. See images below. Hand held with shutter speeds in the 1/50 to 1/100 range.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works, and works well I love everything about this lens. It focused quickly and accurately for me. The light was useful, but it was a rare occurrence that it would need to be used. The IS helps if you are hand holding, but if you can use a tripod. Focus stacking can be a little tricky with the STM motor, but I was able to do it with some patience and careful handling.
