I have the 35mm f2 IS and it nearly instantly became my favourite lens!

Ditto and I have a few of the L lenses.

I am renting the 35 f/2 IS down here at the Outer Banks of North Carolina. Wow, it is a truly great lens.

Time to stop renting and buy it :lol: Canon's newer lenses from the past 5 years or so have been quite great, my 100mm f2.8L IS would be my second favourite lens and is also amazing.

Even though it's an f2 you can still get a real bokeh and it's tack sharp wide open so to anyone looking to buy it, don't hesitate just buy it!

it is small and can fit in your pocket. sweet little lens and good performance for the money. I'm not a fan of the bokeh. It is a loud little guy.

Every post about this lens has somebody ragging about the loud buzzy autofocus. In truth this only happens if you force the autofocus to fail and keep hunting and racking between minimum and infinity focus. In actual use the lens will go fom infinity to minimum focus with a "tchk" sound that is quieter than the shutter release.

Heya,

I don't hear the lens unless it's banging into the minimum or maximum distances, and that's only if you are too close to the subject and it's trying hard to get minimum focus. When you're in normal ranges and not doing that, it's silent.

Very best,

I have both versions of the 35F2. AF is a shade faster on the IS lens, IS is there and it can help, and the IS lens has better resistance to flare. Bokeh is better on the new lens.
I have been using the new lens for awhile, but just decided to use the older version on my T2i on a trip to the beach. The old lens does really well.
I can't assure you that the new lens will be sharper than the old one on a crop body. It is a better lens, but whether is is worth the extra cost to you is a personal choice.
