Compact, lightweight, and close-focusing, the RF 35mm f/1.8 IS Macro STM from Canon is a unique wide-angle prime mixing the versatility of a general wide lens with the specialty of a 1:2 macro optic. An advanced optical design is benefitted by a Super Spectra coating, which helps to control flare and ghosting for greater contrast and color accuracy when working in bright or backlit conditions. Capable of focusing down to 6.7" at half life-size, this lens is ideal for photographing everything from close-ups of plants to street scenes and landscapes. The bright f/1.8 maximum aperture offers increased control over depth of field and also suits working in a variety of lighting conditions. Complementing this is a five stop-effective image stabilization, which minimizes the appearance of camera shake for sharper handheld shooting. Also, an STM motor affords impressively quiet and smooth autofocus performance and full-time manual focus override. Additionally, a configurable Control Ring lets you adjust exposure settings, including ISO, aperture, and exposure compensation, from the lens itself.

Canon RF 35mm f/1.8 IS Macro STM Reviews
Going in, I knew this lens had two draw backs that I would need to be aware of: - f1.8 isn't super sharp throughout the entire frame. - the auto focus is very loud! Knowing that, I still wanted to pick up a native rf prime that was wider than the nifty 50 (which was my edc lens for 6 the past months). With all that said, I LOVE this lens for edc shots and haven't taken it off in the last month that I've owned it. I used to carry the nifty 50 in my sling "just in case", but I've stopped taking it with me. If you shoot wide open and are trying to cream out the background, then you will not notice the slightly out of focus fringing before the bok kicks in. I use an EOS R and really appreciate the IS built into the lens. My only real gripe is that it is twice the length of the nifty 50 making it awkward to put in and take out of my sling (hex ranger mini), but I guess that is the trade off for the lens IS. Overall, I would buy this again!
Works great with the R5 focus bracketing.
AF is too noisy
Love its being a macro lens and at $449 is still a tad overpriced. It build quality feels plastickey and the elements inside the lens being a little loose. On the plus side, it's compact and its sharp modern character makes it suitable for product photography with contrasty colors. I don't find it bad wide open but like most lenses, it gets better when stopped a couple of stops down.
This lens is cool
It take nice pictures. Nice focal length and sharpness. It is lightweight and compact a good all around lens stunting portraits.only negative is, it did not come with a lens hood.
