The Canon EF 35mm f2 IS USM Lens is Canon’s first 35mm prime lens to feature an Image Stabiliser and USM (Ultra Sonic Motor) technology and is ideal for landscape, portrait and travel photography. The EF 35mm prime lens with a four-stop Image Stabilizer and f/2 maximum aperture makes it ideal for low-light photography too.
The Ultrasonic AF motor provides fast and accurate focusing and the aspherical lens element boosts image quality. The 35mm f/2 lens offers a minimum focusing distance of 0.24mm and the eight-bladed aperture is great for smooth bokeh.

A natural wide-angle view
Offering a natural perspective and a wider angle of view, the EF 35mm f/2 IS USM is a good alternative standard lens to a traditional 50mm optic when used on a full-frame DSLR. On EOS cameras with APS-C sized sensors it gives an angle of view similar to a 56mm lens.
Image stabilisation for low-light shooting
Shoot hand held in low-light conditions using shutter speeds that are up to four stops slower than usually recommended. Image Stabilizer (IS) technology detects automatically when a photographer is panning to follow moving objects and switches off stablisation in this direction.
Large f/2 maximum aperture
Shooting with apertures as wide as f/2 enables photographers to work with shallow depth of field. Enjoy a bright viewfinder image and use relatively fast shutter speeds even in dim conditions.
Enjoy fast, near-silent autofocus thanks to a ring-type ultrasonic AF motor. Stay in control with full-time manual focus override.
Sophisticated optical design
An aspherical lens element maximises image quality while a eight-bladed aperture diaphragm delivers smooth, out-of-focus bokeh. The EF 35mm f/2 IS USM focuses down to 0.24m, letting you get close to your subjects.
Small enough to always warrant a place in your bag, the EF 35mm f/2 IS USM is perfect for reportage and street photography.
