Very nice. I think I want one! Certainly a more reasonable option than several other 35s.

Will patiently wait for the price to drop... will likely grab one for the size, aperture, IS combo. I think it's a match made in heaven, and will pick it in favor of a faster lens.

Pretty close to getting this - just wish there were a few more reviews out there.

I dont think you need a review. The numbers look a good bit better than the regular 35F2. There arent many canon USM lenses that have poor AF. This just is not a popular combination for a lot of people, as they would rather have a faster lens than one with IS. I'm in the opposite frame of thought, I value IS more than a stop of light in this case.

F2 is fast enough in low light, DOF @ 1.4 is very thin and I would stop down anyhow. The IS is good for static shots and video. The size is also very good.

You are so right - I usually set my aperture on my primes to 2.8, or 2.0 - I am thinking this would/could replace my 50mm, although I do love that lens. Just trying to justify having three primes.

I don't know much about the old Canon 35mm f/2 but is the IQ the same or is it improved in the newer f/2 IS version?

looking at the 100% crop comparison between the 35L, it looks like the L is better at f/2 but pretty equal at 2.8 and above.
