Hopefully we see some reviews on Canon EF35mm f/2 IS USM. I really want to see how this will stand against new Sigma 35 1.4

IS at 35mm... don't see the advantage, but higher price and extra weight
I will stay with Canon 35 1.4L, the lens is so fast allready out of hand in dark conditions without IS, so the point of the IS is reducing camera shake when shooting out of hand even in almost complete dark or to work at lower iso's for less noise?

I have shaky hands (and head, sometimes); I'll take IS on any size lens out there, if I can get it.

I guess canon is concentrating on video market with these IS versioned wide end primes.

handheld shots with DOF in low light. i'll bet it'll be as sharp @ f2 as the 35L and it certainly is smaller, cheaper and lighter.

...and motion blur at 1/4s in handheld street photo. There are also more and more areas where setting up a tripod is prohibited - museums, art galleries, churches. I also hope that f=2 is sufficient for background blur when necessary.

I'm seriously interested in this lens... almost to the point of selling my 35L to justify purchasing it. But, i can't get myself to let go of my beloved 35L at this point, because it's so sharp and colors are so lovely.

Really, though. This 35/2 IS has a nice demographic and market with the IS. Video and night photo/dragging shutter speed is key.

I am waiting for more reviews. I took some test shots with flash with my old 35F2 to check sharpness without any motion blur - or blur from my movement. Now I know why photos are coming out sharper with this lens than my Canon 50F1.4 at F2. The old 35 F2 lens is really good at F2 and perhaps a shade sharper at F2.2. At both F stops, it is much too sharp for people with bad complexions or wrinkles.
The new lens is going to have to be much better to get me to shell out the dough for IS.

I'd like the IS, but I am going to wait for now.
