    Canon EF 35mm f/2 lens review – the little engine that could

    It gets a bit neglected, but this affordable fast prime can do a good job for you, whether you’re on full frame or a cropped sensor body. In this video, I take a look in more detail at the Canon EF 35mm f/2.

    Note, this is a review of the older Canon 35mm f/2 lens. Canon have recently (late 2012) released an new version with USM focus and image stabilisation – the Canon EF35mm f/2 IS USM. Which is great, but it’s $849. If you’re spending that much money, you might want to look at the well-reviewed Sigma 35mm F1.4 DG HSM. But at least for now, this cheaper (if noisier) Canon offering is still available.

      Thanks for this honest review. I’m not always clear on how best choose a lens. This was really helpful.
