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 36.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This lens shows another world in our own world. I've had this lens for a couple of days, and I am amazed every time I use it! This lens opens up another universe in our own neighborhoods. Details of insects, spiders, and flowers is very sharp, with great color resolution. I don't know all the technical specifications of this lens; I'll leave that up to the professionals to write about. What I do know is that these images are superb. This is the first macro lens I've owned, and it's just as fun as I imagined. I cannot wait to see what future endeavors and worlds I will see through this lens. If you want an affordable macro lens, this one works great on the 80D. Once again, Canon hits it out of the park!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful results Bought this for my fiance’s Rebel T2i. This prime lens completely transformed the camera, when compared to the stock kit zoom lens! Excellent sharpness on f5 and above, and provides a beautiful bokah on all aperture settings. Great portrait lens too. Thr Macro led lighting is helpful, and sports a neutral to cool color temperature. Auto focus hunts a lot on the T2i. The manual focus feature also takes a lot of getting used to (and a tripod/monopod helps on fast apertures). The CA on f2.8 is very noticeable however. It would be great to get automatic compensation for CA and vignetting at the camera level, with a firmware update.

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 Really Fun Lens! I'm still learning to use this lens, and I've never had a macro lens before, but this has been a really fun experience. I really like the F/2.8 aperture on this lens and it works well for portrait type photos as well as macro. The adjustable macro ring light is an awesome feature - two brightness settings, and you can light one side or the other, which comes in really handy - see coin pic. The lens does have an incredibly narrow depth of field up close and stopped down to F/2.8. As you can see in the newsprint pic, even a slight curve in a pretty flat surface can make a difference in focus - but also can make for some cool effects. I was also able to freeze the bubbles in a column of water flowing from a faucet at a high shutter speed pretty well with this lens. Lately I've been trying to get a few pictures of snowflakes - challenging but really fun. I absolutely love this lens. It's opened up a whole new world of photo opportunities for me. I can't wait to try insect pics in the Spring. This is a fantastic lens for the price - stabilized STM lens with the ring light built in, and F/2.8 - this has it all! Also comes with a screw on lens hood for when you are not using the ring light. Build quality seems great as well. Just a sweet lens overall.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderous! I purchased this lens after reading the reviews on here. I love the overall performance of this lens! The quality of the images I've been able to obtain with this lens is outstanding. I am a beginner in Macro photography and I'm highly satisfied with my purchase. Simple to use!

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 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 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.
