Canon EF 35mm f/2 IS USM Wide-Angle Lens is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great piece of glass I picked up this lens about 2 weeks ago to use on my 6D. Sharp as can be, excellent color rendition. One note using it wide open at f2.0 the lens produces a lot of vignetting on the corners, it completely goes away at f4.0. Using it wide open is not an issue because it can be easily removed in post production.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Next Level! Purchased this lens about 6 months ago and have been blown away by the quality. I shoot on a 7d (cropped sensor) so this lens actually ends up being closer to a 50mm for AP-C shooters. I use this mainly for model/portrait photography as well as videography. The Image stabilization is a huge plus and the focus ring is smooth and consistent. This is by far the best lens I own.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful lens! I likely have 12-15 Canon lenses. This and the new 85mm IS are my favorite primes. It is just tack sharp and wonderful for low light situations. It has a nice size and feel. I just shot some music in a dark club (video) using my 80D and it looks great. Nice to have that f2 in low light situations. Typically I use it for stills on my 5D4 or 5D3 but it is just a wonderful lens. Great to have the IS as well. Easy to shoot at 1/2 second hand held when there is no movement in the scene. Absolutely love this lens!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent lens I bought this not even a week ago, and I wish I would've gotten it sooner. It is so sharp and focus's extremely fast. The images are crisp and colors are fabulous. The lens flare from this is also so pretty! Love it and would buy again,

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unmatched clarity and color This lens is simply amazing. The only advantage the L lenses have on this lens is the weather sealing and that's never been a problem. The auto focus is fast, the IS helps and it's a great lens for low light. Where this lens is amazing is the sharpness, clarity and the colors it produces. Colors just pop. I haven't noticed the vignetting others mention but, as they say, that's easily correctable. Images are sharp to the edges and I'm definitely going to start using this lens more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Features Since I am a professional photographer, I must be able to count on my lenses to produce excellent images under wide-ranging conditions. Outstanding optics, robust and durable build quality are givens for me. This particular lens, however, has a couple feature which make it the best 35mm available for my work. Having such a wide aperture (f/2.0) allows me to shoot many events without flash! That can be big to my clients. Also, having IS at this (kinda-wide) focal length gives me distinct advantages: (1) it plays into the non-flash event scenario. (2) it makes a wonderful lens for video. Additionally, I can get beautiful short DOF shots with this baby. It's almost like a little brother to my 85mm f/1.2. If you have a need for 35mm (who doesn't?), this one rocks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fine Lens - Requires you to use your camera's Peri Picture quality and sharpness is much better than expected based on the MTF Chart. Suitable, at large aperture, for indoor photos of moving objects that require fast shutter times. Short minimum focal length, fast USM, and very effective IS make this an ideal "Grandkids" lens. Fine detail for outdoor/landscape photography. It is important that you use your camera's Peripheral Illumination Correction as otherwise you will see significant vignetting. This being a newer lens, you may have to first update your version of EOS Utility in order to register the lens' Peripheral Illumination Correction Data. Do buy the original Canon Lens Hood - some aftermarket products simply do not work well on this lens.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best all purpose lens I recommend this as the best Canon lens for anytime anywhere photography. If you are confused of which lens is the most suitable for you, anytime and anywhere, especially if you own a full frame, this is your best choice. If you are beginner or hobbyist, this lens brings the best in you. The lens is very sharp and fast. Only draw back I see is the vignetting.
