I played around with the idea of getting this lens, or maybe the Sigma for quite a long time. As mentioned in the review, "that thick and stubby “prime” design" was very tempting too, but in the end I went with the Sigma (that was also before the Canon price drop). It may be a little clinical (the Sigma) but I happen to like the sharp rendering for night-time hand held photography. I retain the original 35mm f/2 for travel - nothing beats that compactness.
The attached shot was taken with the Sigma 35mm at f/1.8, 1/30, ISO2500 handheld (on a 5D MkII).
