Canon EF 35mm f/2.0 IS USM


The EF 35mm f/2.0 IS USM is another new lens from Canon to be released in December along with the Canon EF 24-70mm f/4.0 IS USM which we took a look at in yesterdays post.

The EF 35mm f/2 IS USM is very light (335grams) and is Canon’s first-ever 35mm prime lens to feature optical Image Stabilizer technology, which combines with high quality optics to offer outstanding performance perfect for use on any EOS digital camera.

With its advanced specifications and 35mm focal length, photographers will have a greater flexibility to shoot a wider range of subjects. The EF35mm f/2.0 IS USM  will be popular with landscape, portrait and wedding photographers.

Canon press release:

”The successor to Canon’s EF 35mm f/2, the EF 35mm f/2 IS USM lens is a compact and lightweight wide-angle prime lens that provides a high level of image quality and functionality.

The optics and mechanical workings are designed to improve image quality in the lens’s periphery and provide faster and quieter AF than its predecessor, as well as Optical IS and optional full-time manual focus, all in a durable lens body with a high-grade design.

Featuring a circular aperture diaphragm and lens coatings optimized for minimal ghosting and flare, the EF 35mm f/2 IS USM lens achieves beautiful, soft backgrounds and amazing image quality.

The EF 35mm f/2 IS USM lens is expected to be available in December for an approximate retail price of $849.99 (£531.00)”
