This thread is inspiring. The 35 IS has just sailed past the 100L to the top of my wish list.

The current 35L seems almost pointless.

I own both and although the 100L is an amazing the lens, there's just something about the 35 IS that makes it my favourite.

There was a time when a double negative was acceptable grammar.  However, under our current "rules" of grammer, double negatives should be avoided in order to reduce confusion.

Great use of the 35mm wide open.  It's my favorite lens for apartment shoots, especially with available light.

Canon 5dmk3 + 35mm f2 IS @ f6.3 iso400
very nice capture Andrew!
35mm f/2 IS never stops to surprise me. It is just an incredible lens. This is the prime that spent most time on my 5D3, second is the 100L. I was considering the 35A but the price, size and weight of the 35A makes the 35 f/2 IS a much more portable lens for street photography and the IS comes very handy
Body: Canon 5DIII. Primes: 100mm f2.8L IS, 15mm f2.8 & 50mm f1.8 STM, Tamron 85mm f1.8. Zoom: 16-35mm f4L IS, 24-70mm f2.8L II, 70-200mm f2.8L IS II + EF 1.4x III TC & 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II.
Travel kit: Fujifilm X-T2+ 4 lenses

This thread is inspiring. The 35 IS has just sailed past the 100L to the top of my wish list.

The current 35L seems almost pointless.

Unless you really need f/1.4 and are willing to accept inferior bokeh highlights for that aperture, I would say yes the current 35L is pointless.  The bokeh highlights have that dated angular look on the 35L unlike the 35 IS.

Until Canon updates the f/1.4L, I would always recommend the f/2 IS to anyone who asks my advice for this focal length.

On a side note, this is a fantastic lens for street photography in the city due to the focal length, small size, and high quality.
