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.

The IS makes this shot possible at 1/15 sec in a dim, underground train station.

The IS also works great for panning:

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.


Considering whether go for 35mmL mk I or 35mmIS.
Would do some street photography and some indoor portrait shoot.
IS should be more useful than large aperture for my purpose.
