With a redesigned mechanical and optical structure, this lens features a GMo a spherical lens element for high image quality with improved performance in the periphery. It incorporates a rear focus system and ring-type USM for faster, more precise autofocus performance. Full-time manual focus enables manual focusing while in AF mode, a micro-stepping drive provides quieter operation and a low speed focus drive delivers optimal results for video shooting. Canon Optical Image Stabilizer system delivers the equivalent effect of 4 stops, can detect normal shooting or panning, and automatically switches to optimal IS mode. Compact and lightweight, this lens has an 8-blade circular aperture diaphragm for soft backgrounds plus optimized lens coatings for minimized ghosting and flare.

Reviewed in the United States on 18 October 2017
Amazing lens for the money. This 35mm is the perfect compromise between being somewhat wide enough to get landscapes and shooting in tighter spaces indoors without having any of the distortion issues you get with a 24 or wider on a full frame camera. I honestly sometimes mistake my images that were shot with this lens from being shot with my 50mm. Get that fast shallow look with a wider angle without the distortion.

The bokeh is right in line with the other lenses in this line. It's very nice but maybe not as natural and nice as the L series lenses. It's not bad at all, just looks a little different from the L line.

It seems a little strange to have something as wide as a 35mm with IS but I've found it to be incredibly nice. You can handhold this thing shooting super slow! If you were to handhold at 1/2 sec shutter speed and shoot a burst you would probably have several sharp images. Thats crazy! IS works very well and for shooting pics of my kid around the dark house or shooting landscape or something similar in the darkness of early morning or late sunset, this thing shines!! You'll appreciate IS more than you think on this lens. If anything even if you aren't shooting in dark scenarios, your overall hit rate just going up with IS.

Small, lightweight, fast, sharp, IS....what's not to love!

Don't expect L series build but for the money, I would buy this lens over the 35L many times! Having the IS and not having the weight for the L may make this better than the L version for some people.

I've included a few shots I've done with this lens for clients.
