Canon 35mm f/2 IS USM

Available Today

A modern day update to a versatile, compact and lightweight wide-angle lens, the EF 35mm f/2 IS USM is incredibly bright and offers image stabilization, superb image quality and construction. The EF 35mm f/2 IS USM features a GMo aspherical lens element for high image quality, an 8-blade circular aperture diaphragm for soft backgrounds, a minimum focusing distance of 0.79 ft./0.24m, plus optimized lens coatings for minimized ghosting and flare.

A rear focus system, and ring-type USM with micro-stepping drive provide faster, quieter, and more precise autofocus performance perfect for video. It has a 4-stop Image Stabilizer system that detects panning and automatically switches to the optimal IS mode.

The third in the “IS prime trinity” along with the 24mm f/2.8 IS and 28mm f/2.8 IS lenses. Like those lenses, it is quite sharp even wide open, has excellent image stabilization, and nice background blurs. A very good lens at a slightly too-high price.

Truth is, I can see people wanting one of them. Unless you’re doing critical video work, I can’t see much reason for having more than one of them. Why did Canon make all 3? I wonder about that. I also wonder if, since I’m usually disheveled at work, when I dress up am I ‘sheveled’ of ‘heveled’.
