Canon 35mm f/2.0 overview

  • 1Description

A flexible wide-angle prime, the EF 35mm f/2 IS USM from Canon pairs the versatile focal length with sophisticated autofocus capabilities as well as image stabilization. The bright f/2 maximum aperture benefits working in difficult lighting conditions and also affords greater control over depth of field for isolating subject matter. The optical design utilizes one aspherical element to reduce spherical aberrations and distortion for high sharpness, and a Super Spectra coating has also been applied to suppress flare and ghosting for increased contrast and color accuracy. Benefitting the optical assets is a four-stop-effective Image Stabilizer, which minimizes the appearance of camera shake for sharper handheld images. Also, a ring-type USM realizes quick, quiet, and smooth autofocus performance along with full-time manual focus override.

Wide-angle 35mm f/2 lens is designed for full-frame Canon EF-mount DSLRs, however can also be used with APS-C models where it provides a 56mm equivalent focal length.
Bright f/2 maximum aperture benefits working in low-light conditions and also affords significant control over depth of field for working with selective focus techniques.
One glass-molded aspherical element helps to suppress spherical aberrations and distortion for a high degree of sharpness and accurate rendering.
Super Spectra coating has been applied to individual elements to minimize ghosting and flare for greater contrast and color neutrality when working in strong lighting conditions.
An Optical Image Stabilizer helps to minimize the appearance of camera shake by up to four shutter speed stops to better enable working in low-light conditions and with slower shutter speeds.
A ring-type Ultrasonic Motor (USM), along with a rear focusing system, is employed to deliver fast and precise autofocus performance as well as full-time manual focus override. Additionally, a micro-stepping drive also provides quiet focusing performance and a low-speed focus drive is used to benefit video recording applications.
Rounded eight-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing out of focus quality that benefits the use of shallow depth of field and selective focus techniques.

    Canon 35mm f/2.0 reviews

    EF 35mm f/2 IS USM Lens is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 193.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressive performer I got this lens for Christmas. I use with my 6D (full frame). This is a impressive performer: sharp, nice bokeh and virtually no fringing under harshest conditions - even at f/2.0 (see photo1). The AF is very fast and the IS is a nice extra. The focusing ring works smoothly. The overall build quality is great. This is my new favorite lens. It's lightweight but somewhat bulky. Looks funny attached to my wife's 400D. Strongly recommended! P.S.: I didn't like the price of the lens hood, but I'm not happy with the quality of the 3rd party version I got instead: it doesn't lock tight in its place, which is a no-go for a tulip style lens.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding!!! I have owned several canon primes over the years but this lens does some magic to the image that no other lens did. It is not about one technical detail such as sharpness, contrast etc..the overall result has some magic to it in the way it captures light, the quality of bokeh etc. The swift AF, although slightly loud, makes it possible to not miss the right moment. My comparison is with EF 50mm 1.4, 85mm 1.8, 28mm 1.8, 24-105 f4 is, etc on canon 6d and sigma 30mm 1.4 on canon t3i. I highly recommend especially at this price point. This has been my go to lens for general purpose and travel on my 6d and I think I will be keeping it for a loooong time..

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this lens! I recently started taking photography classes and initially started out buying the Canon EOS Rebel T5i (body only) and a 50 mm prime lens. After getting into the photography more, I needed another lens! When inside or in tight spaces, I needed a wider angle on the lens. So I finally was able to purchase this lens, getting the free shipping, plus the $$ rebate. I'm very pleased with this lens. The clarity has been great, and I love using it when taking pictures of families, as the 50 mm lens was difficult at times to get all of the family members into the shot. I'm also very happy with B&H Photo as well. Great customer service!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Like This Lens! I have a 60D and some day would like to add a full-frame. I wanted a prime lens, something faster than the f/3.5 and f/4 zooms I have. I considered the 28mm, 35mm, and 50mm. Anyway after reading review after review I decided on the 35. This lens is great! On my crop sensor body it's very sharp at f2, in fact, seems to be sharp at all apertures. Even on a full frame, any of the issues it has are gone by f2.8. The IS works great as well. I have a very high keeper rate even at 1/6 sec. Auto focus is fast and accurate. My only grippe is a typical one for Canon. No hood included.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Back To The Start This lens is used on a Rebel T5i, a 60D, and most recently a 6D. When I was shooting film I almost always used prime lenses, but as I transitioned to digital I found zoom lenses convenient, reasonably priced, and allowed me to carry less gear. Now, I'm rediscovering prime lenses, and remembering how a fixed focal length made me think more creatively about framing, distance, and discretion. The f2 is plenty fast for my style of photography (family activities, street photography, city scapes), and I've had nothing but exceptionally sharp images. It's my close-to-50mm equivalent for the T5i, and 60D, which is probably my favorite all purpose focal length, and on the 6D it's providing contextual width to my street imagery.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A must have for crop sensors When I chose to buy a macro lense, I was hoping it could serve as a general walk around lens. Not really. At 60mm, it gives in reality 96mm of focal lenght. It works, but it's not ideal. I started looking between 35mm and 50mm, but I was afraid the 50mm would give results similar to my 60mm. The choice was pretty clear. 35mm is more expensive, but it's much more versatile on a crop sensor camera than 50mm. I don't really have the need (and money) for the L version, so 2.0 seemed like the best bet. It's a little big larger than what I was expecting, but I'm really pleased with the results.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from the perfect standard lens for my 5D I was looking for an IS lens that was near standard and fast so that I could use it for photos and video. The 35mm f2 IS is exactly what I hoped it would be. The IS smooths video very nicely, the 35mm on full frame is perfect for general use, the IQ appears to be excellent (no tests), and I've even been able to shoot 1:1 macro with extension tubes. Everything about this lens is consistent with the $500 price tag from feel to the metal mounts and it is the perfect balance on 5D. When the 50mm f2 IS comes out (assuming that is the plan) it is going to sell like hotcakes.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Really Fine Lens At A Bargin Price I was reading reviews of the Canon 35mm f/1.4 when the reviewer compared this lens with the Canon 35mm f/2 IS. I decided to research further and decided to buy the 35mm f/2 IS and I'm very happy with that decision. The lens never fails to impress me and it's surprisingly good in low light conditions with my Canon 6D. I've never mounted it on any other camera. I like to travel light and this camera and lens together with my Canon 24-70 f/2.8 MKII fit nicely into a small easy to carry bag. One drawback is the high price of the Canon lens hood.
