Canon photographers in need of a wide-angle prime lens should take a look at the EF 35mm f/2 IS USM—it's sharp, compact, and optically stabilized.

Handling and features This wide angle prime lens from Canon sports a fast maximum aperture of f/2, an ultrasonic focus motor and image stabilisation. This lens is currently available for around £765, which seems a little steep.

I use this lens as a multipurpose lens that stays on my camera most of the time. It offers a lot of flexibility for low light and indoor shots, whether portraits or candids. I'm very happy with the build quality and IQ.

When I read online reviews of EF35mm f/2 USM IS, I thought the reviews were underwhelming and thought there wasn't much improvement over the old version other than the USM and IS. The reviews also varied quite widely, creating a little confusion in making the decision.

This lens is reasonably sharp wide open and tack sharp by F/2.8. It's a convenient size/weight for a walk of my most used lenses. Was this review helpful? |

As one other reviewer noted, this is truly an underrated gem of a lens. It has become my go-to lens for any situation, especially video. I can't think of a better lens for low light video shooting. The IS is the best I have ever used and the manual focus ring is perfectly smooth and damped.

very sharp. even sharper than sigma 35mm 1.4 lens. IS system is very useful for hand-on. A++
