Hi, bascially i just sold my old canon 1100d as i was after some of the new features like rotating screen and wifi. ive had a few lenses for my canon over the years but currently only have the 40mm pancake as it fits my needs.

im currently looking at getting either the canon 750d or the nikon d5500. id like to invest in a 35mm lens so either the canon 35mm f2 (£350) or the nikon 35mm f1.8 (£130) the 35mm canon lens is alot more expensive than the nikon lens. what would be my best opinion? i just want as best IQ for the price im paying

I'd take the Nikon in a heartbeat over the Canon because of IQ. I have both 35's and the Canon is a lot more money but has IS, while the Nikon 35 is nice and sharp remember your altimatly buying into a system. Good luck!

all im bothered about is IQ not fussed on video footage so the IS isnt too important. how can it be possible that the 35mm nikon and d5500 is much better than the 35mm canon and 750d when the canon is more expensive?

1. Canon lens has image stabilization which cost more than no IS
2. Why in this case i will prefer nikon, just because the lens could give you f1.8, but canon just f2

There is the Canon 35mm f/1.4 - it's a wonderful lens. I've had mine for about four years now.

If you mean it's too expensive I agree that it is not a cheap lens; it DOES produce wonderful results though ;-)a

i currently have the 40mm f2.8 i was hoping the 35mm would give better quality pictures. im a little unsure what to do another option is the 70d and just use my 40mm that i already have but the images wont be any better than the 750d or d5500 if not worse and its quite abit more money

I can't add much to the Nikon/Canon debate. On Canon lenses though, although the 40stm is really nice, the 35IS is a much better lens. Not only is it a stop faster, but the AF is fast. I was shocked that the 40 is so nice wide open, but quickly starts diffraction at 5.6. It's basically an f4 lens.

I haven't been a 35mm shooter in a decade, preferring 28 and 50. Canon seems to have never made a stellar wide angle lens (except tse), including the 24 and 35Ls. Had 'em, sold 'em. Nikon on the other hand has some great wides. I just bought a chipped adapter for an old 28ais for a lightweight alt to my Zeiss 28. Nikon has always had great wides, but their background rendering on teles are rough. Pick your poison.

That said, I was so impressed with the 40 stm that I returned it for a 35IS.

It's a great lens, and at the current price, a very good deal. IS on a wide is for video guys probably, but the new optics are on par with (sit down) my Zeiss 35. It's a crazy good lens that's handhold-able at ¼ sec.
