The Canon 35mm f/1.4L

Very close to the 85L in sharpness and contrast, the 35mm f/1.4L is Canon’s sharpest and fastest lens in the “moderately wide” category. It’s superb for landscapes, group portraits, and street photography.

Yeah, we know you have this focal length covered with a really good zoom. But there’s just something special about the images created with this lens.

Roger's Take

This is the wide angle member of the Holy Trinity of L prime lenses: the 35 f/1.4, 85 f/1.2, and 135 f/2.0. It’s one of the older designs in Canon’s lineup but still nearly flawless: sharp even in the edges, contrasty, and has smooth out-of-focus highlights. I find myself trying to find a way to frame a shot at this focal length, just so I can use this lens. If you’ve ever asked the question “why would you shoot with a prime lens when zooms are so much more convenient” this lens will demonstrate the answer for you.

However, from a pure resolution standpoint it has now been passed up by the Sigma 35mm f/1.4 lens, which is sharper both in the center and along the edges and corners. The Canon remains a bit more predictable, though, both in autofocus accuracy and bokeh.
