An alternative standard prime lens for photographers who prefer a wider view of the world.
On full-frame cameras, the compact EF 35mm f/2.0 offers a wide angle of view and a very natural perspective, making it a good alternative standard lens to a traditional 50mm optic.
A minimum focusing distance of just 25cm enables photographers to get closer to their subjects while retaining a more natural, wide-angle perspective. The lens' fast aperture means depth of field can be restricted for blurred backgrounds and photographers can shoot hand-held even when light levels fall.
An integrated AF motor provides fast autofocusing performance. The lens' electromagnetic diaphragm ensures incredibly accurate control over aperture positioning.
Super Spectra coatings ensure accurate colour balance and enhance contrast. They also reduce flare and ghosting – a common problem caused by light bouncing off a camera's sensor.
