Canon EF 35mm
lenses are a family of wide angle prime lenses with EF mount fabricated by Canon Inc. The family also includes one EF-South lens that only mounts on Canon bodies with APS-C sensors.

Focal lengths at 35mm or less are considered wide angle on 135 film and full-frame digital bodies. This focal length is commonly used for group portraits, landscapes, street photography, and general purpose photography, due to its relatively broad-angle views and low distortion characteristics.

Four EF and one EF-S 35mm lenses accept been developed. Two of these are L serial lens. Three of the five lenses are currently bachelor (the
f/i.4L II USM, the
f/2 IS USM and the EF-Southward
f/2.8 Macro IS STM).

  • f/1.4L Two USM
  • f/ii
  • f/two IS USM
  • EF-Southward
    f/ii.8 Macro IS STM

Due to the crop factor of Canon APS-C (1.6x) and APS-H (ane.3x) sensors, all of the 35mm lenses have a equivalent focal length of 56mm and 45.5mm respectively.

EF 35mm
f/1.4L USM

is a professional L series lens. It is constructed with a metal body. Features of this lens are a wide rubber focus ring that is damped, and a distance window with infrared index. The maximum aperture of
f/1.4 gives this lens the ability to create shallow depth of field and smooth bokeh furnishings. The optical construction of this lens contains xi lens elements in nine groups, including ane ground and polished aspherical lens element. It uses a rear floating focusing system, powered by a ring type USM motor. Autofocus speed of this lens is very fast, and the front of the lens neither rotates nor extends when focusing.

The EF 35mm
f/one.4L II USM lens is the showtime lens in Canon line upward to utilise a Blue Spectrum Refractive Eyes element (BR element) to reduce the chromatic abnormality at the blue end of the spectrum.[ii]
This results in a improve optical quality. Further it has, according to Canon, an improved weather sealing. On other hand information technology is roughly 20 mm longer and 180 grand heavier.

is a prosumer level lens. It is synthetic with a plastic body and a metal mount. This lens features a distance window with infrared index. The maximum aperture of
f/two gives this lens the ability to create depth of field furnishings, but non to the same shallowness of the EF 35mm
f/1.4L USM, while its v-bract diaphragm may produce background blur (bokeh). The optical structure of this lens contains seven lens elements, without any special lens elements. It uses a linear extension focusing system, powered past an AFD motor. Car focus speed of this lens is moderately fast, but focusing does make some sound. The front end of the lens does not rotate when focusing, but does extend.

f/two IS USM


EF 35mm

is an enthusiast-level lens. Similar the original version of the
f/two lens, it has a plastic torso and a metal mount, but adds epitome stabilization. It likewise has an eight-blade diaphragm with rounded blades, every bit opposed to the eight non-rounded blades of the
f/ane.4L lens and the five not-rounded blades of the original
f/2 model. This lens features a distance window with infrared alphabetize. The optical structure of this lens contains 10 elements in 8 groups, including one molded aspherical element. Information technology uses a band-blazon USM motor. The front of the lens neither rotates nor extends when focusing.
