I've grown fond of this lens, its primary purpose was for movies on APSC (100D) but on 7DII it works great with beautiful (IMHO) bokeh

I really love this lens for indoor glamour/boudoir shoots in confined spaces.  If I go to my 28mm lens, there tends to be too much distortion of the body proportions.  35mm is just right.  The Image Stabilization is nice to have when working indoors under available light and the F/2 aperture gives a nice background blur.  I'm sure the 35 L2 or the Sigma Art lens are sharper, but if you are photographing women, you really don't want them to be ultra sharp.  You can still count the eyelashes, that's sharp enough for me.

If you can handle some NSFW 18+ images, you are welcome to check out this blog post for more photos of this lovely lady.

Discovering the MFD and open aperture of my 35/2 IS USM :)

almost at MFD, 1/1600, 2.8, ISO100, on tripod with remote because of tiny DOF
sometimes you have to close your eyes to see properly.
