you could split the difference with the 28mm f/2.8 IS

Beautiful shots. I'm sort of debating on purchasing the EF 35mm f2 IS USM, or the EF 24mm f2.8 IS USM. I loved the wide angle of my old 24mm on my Canon SLR film cameras. Mating the EF 24mm on my Canon 6D full frame body brings back that old film camera combination. However, I'm hearing rave reviews of the 35mm f2 IS USM lens. Both the 24mm and 35mm lenses make beautiful images. Still debating.

I went that direction (split the difference) initially, but decided I wanted the extra stop later on and ended up selling it and purchasing the 35. I will say that 28f2.8IS is excellent. And it's tiny. It's considerably smaller than the 35f2IS. Honestly it's not much longer than the pancakes. But if Eric Hopp wants OR needs that extra stop, the 35 fits the job better.

agreed. every once in a while that extra stop of light is helpful

Did you use flash? Or just a high iso?

Mine is up for sale if anyone is interested. It's a fantastic lens, but I ended up pulling the trigger on the 35 f1.4L. In some aspects, the f2 IS is actually a better lens, but I wanted the extra stop (I do a lot of event/wedding/portrait work). I have the EOS M w/ 22mm f2, so I have a compact 35mm equivalent for when I want to go lighter.

I had started to feel like this lens was a bit soft. I decided to do some AFMA using the Dot tune method and found out why it was a bit soft. The correct value was +3, what I had it at was -3....

I actually have a 28mm manual focus Canon lens. I did not care much for the 28mm focal length on my old Canon film cameras. It did not feel too wide enough at times. Of course, when I was working with my film cameras, I could not find a good short, telephoto zoom lens in the 28-70mm or 28-85mm. I think I have three of these manual zoom lenses that did not feel right. Oh well. Live and learn. :-P

Guess I'll just have to go back to the local camera store, and test all three lenses. HAHAHAHA! :-P

This lens is just great for a walk around with the 6D.

Mine is in the shop and I haven't had a chance to use it on my 'new' 6d quite yet. It is by far my favorite lens though.

I love how it also bolts to my EOS film cameras because I know I can shoot as slow as 1/10 without any problems.

I was looking at the 24mm 2.8 IS, but I don't think I can do 2.8 - too slow. I think I'll save my pennies for the 24L.

It is interesting though because while my 35mm is in the shop I'm using my 2nd widest lens - 50mm. The 85 and 135 don't really go on my camera very often. I'm going to Europe in a month from now and I'm thinking I'll only take the 35mm with me. I don't really do portraits and even my 50mm is too tight for what I like to shoot. I bought the 5d and 35 f2 IS together and it was my only lens for about a year. Not having it is worse than I thought it would be.

How is this as a nighttime walking around lens? Don't typically shoot at night so I only have a 17-40 as my main travel lens, thinking of grabbing one of these as I've got a two week Europe trip coming up and could use the low light abilities.
