Canon EF 35mm f/2 IS USM Reviews
The-digital-picture reviews the Canon EF 35mm f/2 IS USM and writes;
“The EF 35 f/2 IS lens’ autofocus system is a major upgrade from the older EF 35 f/2. And the manual focus system will be at least as much improved. The 35 IS has a modestly-sized manual focus ring that will be smooth and nicely damped. Expect a nice amount of rotation and no play. You will likely see subject sizes change somewhat as this lens is focus-distance-adjusted, but the framed image should remain smoothly centered.”
Whatdigitalcamera reviews the Canon EF 35mm f/2 IS USM and writes;
“The bright, fixed f/2 aperture allows photographers to employ a shallow depth of field, and the optical IS offers users a 4-stop light advantage, allowing the capture of blur-free images in low light conditions when shooting handheld. Intelligent detection of panning motion is also supported, with Panning IS mode automatically engaged to enable photographers to capture movement with greater accuracy.”
