    The 35mm ii 1.4 is simply as good as it gets right now in terms of a 35mm prime at an affordable price. I spent days weighing my options between this and the Sigma Art 1.4. Went with this one and I'm glad I did. I own the 24mm Sigma Art, and I use it a lot, but it doesn't focus in the dark like the Canon. There's just some special sauce Canon uses when it comes to their auto focusing that just blows everyone else out of the water. If you purchase this lens, you will be preventing any headache you might get from a lens problem. It's just a great lens. SO sharp.

    One Word EXCELLENT

    I am going to keep this short and sweet this is an excellent lens with great sharpness, color, contrast etc. Yes the lens is bigger than version one, yes the lens is heavier than version one but honestly I love the way it handles and feels in the hand. There is some vignetting but I actually like it for certain shots and it can be removed EASILY if not wanted. This is definitely for the professional. I do think it is a little bit expensive but quality cost sometimes and the quality is top notch. A big thumbs up.

    Been waiting for this lens for a long time and they finally released the II version which is WAY better than the original. Very tack sharp images, very fast focus/low light focus. Great bokeh! The lens cap is ok once you get used to it, but I still prefer the other L glass mount type. Great color, CA is not an issue. Great lens!!

    I love this lens and it's on my camera nearly all of the time. Wide enough to capture most scenes and yet still wonderful for portrait work. The f1.4 aperture provides nice low-light abilities and bokeh. Definitely invest in this lens if you're interested in using prime lenses. You'll be happy that you did!

    The Best 35mm!

    After using several 35mm lenses this one is by far the best! It's sharp and produces beautiful bokeh. Its a tad on the heavier side but this is a sacrifice you make for the quality it produces. The lens is made out of plastic but feels dense and well built. Highly recommend it!

    When I heard this was coming out I was super excited to see the older model upgraded after being out for many years. I was looking for a 35mm prime lens and heard great things about this one. You can really push it in low lighting with the proper settings and steadiness. My only complaint would be how heavy it is.

    I was hesitant to invest in the 35mm and I am SO glad that I did so. It is by far the best lens I have in my bag and my go-to for family and wedding photography. Delivery was timely and purchase was easy!

    There is a new king of the 35mm f/1.4 lens lineup. With its introduction, the Canon EF 35mm f/1.4L II USM Lens raises the bar on image quality delivered at this focal length and aperture. This lens is not small, light or inexpensive, but it is anFull Review
