Canon Lens 35mm Focal Range Head to Head

On this second 3 part mini-series – part of the big Canon lens comparison, Pye from slrlounge takes a look at the 8 popular full frame zoom and prime lenses from Canon (all starting from 35).

The first part (above) takes a look at just the 2 primes – the Canon 35mm f/2 IS (there is also a non IS version), and the fast Canon 35mm f/1.4L.

In all, the 3 part test takes a look at 8 different lenses (6 zooms and 2 primes):
