$2k-$2300 for an f/1.4 lens? This is a major reason you have more and more photographers switching systems.

I would disagree with your statement. Canon has many different lens options available for amateurs, to the enthusiasts, to the professionals. Canon's goal isn't to shoot/aim for mediocrity. Majority of the photographers don't need a f/1.4 (super wide aperture) lens. But those who want it, want one that focuses consistently, reliably, and made of high quality.

Canon's not resting on its laurels. It's now adding an extra element to reduce chromatic aberration that no one else has done before. Sample photos seem to show that this is no gimmick and works extremely well. If Canon was merely repacking the same glass and charging extra, sure, people SHOULD get upset. But their lens R&D department has been slaving away.

Fortunately for those who cannot, or wish not to pay Canon's prices, you have options mostly coming from Sigma. But Sigma has had its history of focus inconsistencies in the past that some just aren't willing to put up with.

Lol don't ever look at M mount systems, you'll pay more and not even get autofocus.

Im sorry but this lens better be one of the best lenses ever made to be priced $400-$700 more than the fantastic Sony FE 35mm f/1.4 Zeiss. I think its ridiculously priced IMO.

still to much in my book, the new tamron is looking much better. may not be 1.4 but at 1.8 with VC I think will be a better deal.

Would have to compare against the existing 35mm f/2.0 IS USM Canon lens which is quite a good performer in its own right. It's hard to jump onto a Tamron when Canon has a comparable lens at 1/3 stop less light. I trust the focusing on Canon lenses.

It's just $200 more than what the Sony intro'd at. It has none of the radioactive green color fringing that the Sony has and that is worth an extra $200 to me.

That said the new $600 Tamron 35mm f/1.8 is looking extremely appealing to me at the moment.

BTW I bought the Sony but had to return it due to a defect in the optics. It is an awesome lens though. :)

I don't know, here is a review of the Tamron and it's very positive.

as an owner of a 5DSR and a A7R2, and a person who has been doing a lot of testing for SS to get tack sharp images (and I already own the Canon 35 1.4, 50 1.2 and 85 1.2) the fact that this new lens does not have IS is a killer for me

if you are looking at next gen cameras with higher and higher mpixel counts you need IS or IBIS - or your SS are just way too high

I now use my 24-105 F4 IS on my 5DSR over the 24-70 F2.8 II which is now welded to the A7RII because of the IBIS

the Canon 35F2 is a nice lens but I wish it was sharper in the corners - but with the IS I can get tack sharp images at 1/20 on the 5DSR - with the 50L you need to be at 1/400 to nail it every time


my 2cents is that the Tamron could have a major winner on its hand


i don't know Tamron lenses but if the AF is good I would buy it all day long over the new Canon 35 1.4 II (unless it would have been spec'ed with IS in which case I would already have my order in)


Hockey and wedding photographer. Favourite camera / lens combos: a 1DX II with a Tamron 45 1.8 VC, an A7Rii with a Canon 24-70F2.8L II, and a 5DSR with a Tamron 85 1.8 VC. Every lens I own I strongly recommend [Canon (35Lii, 100L Macro, 24-70F2.8ii, 70-200F2.8ii, 100-400Lii), Tamron (45 1.8, 85 1.8), Sigma 24-105]. If there are better lenses out there let me know because I haven't found them.
