You may want to search reviews with respect to "coma".

Yes. CA was what I was meaning. My 100mm f/2 is almost perfect in this respect, wide open on the edges are very clean, so I would hope a lens that costs more would be just as good.

No, not CA (chromatic aberration), but coma. It is likely a characteristic of this lens. I doubt swapping it out for another will make any difference, but I'm not an expert on it.

An right, thanks guys. I'll do a bit more research. This issue is pretty new to me so it won't hurt to learn some new stuff.

Ah nuts. After some quick research it seems this lens is not at it's best at nighttime at f/2 At the edges.
Oh well I'll have two copies here by next week, I'll keep the better one.

In all fairness - I think adding the phrase "subject dependent" adds some valuable balance to your statement.

Oh yes, I agree with that. With so many glowing reviews of this lens it doesn't seem to be a big deal for most, and I'm sure I can live with it if i have to.
Even though I have the 24-70 f/2.8 MKII I'm finding images with the 35mm seem to pop more indoors. That might be down to being able to use a lower ISO, but whatever it is, I love the look of the images from this lens.

Hello i own a canon 7d mark 2 and I take a lot of video with it, my choices in lens must have is and right now I'm torn between the 35mm f2 is usm or the 24-70 f4 is usm L. i currently own a 10-18mm stm and i ordered the 50mm 1.8 stm but I'm not sure i will keep it (as i haven't received it yet and if i get the 35 i might return the 50) As I said prior my main purpose is video work of my daughter typical "run and gun" kind of videos with some cinematic shots occasionally.

so if anyone could shed some light on your opinion of what would be best that would be great.

thank you

chris

I saw you separate thread on the subject. I also have a 7D2 and my Canon 35mm f/2 IS USM sits on it most of the time. That lens is terrific for video. The IS makes a big difference. Keep in mind it has a USM motor which is very quiet but can still be heard if you use the cameras internal microphones. STM lens are quieter with a smoother auto focus transition than USM lenses. However, since you've ordered the 50mm f/1.8 STM please be aware that the STM motor in this lens is not nearly as quiet as other STM lenses. In fact its almost as audible as a USM lens.
