With its f/2 aperture, 35mm focal length and 4-stop Image Stabiliser, the EF 35mm f/2 IS USM is the ideal choice for handheld shots taken in low light, delivering clear, sharp images without the aid of a tripod or flash. Given its extremely popular focal length – and its exceptional low-light performance – this compact camera lens is a common choice for wedding and event photographers, photojournalists and portrait photographers. With its relatively lightweight stature, it’s also a wonderful landscape lens for anyone looking to venture into the great outdoors. One of the reasons the EF 35mm f/2 IS USM excels at low-light handheld shots is its use of image stabilising technology. This helps to reduce camera shake and stabilise the viewfinder for easier framing. Using this lens, you will also benefit from Canon’s superb ring-type USM autofocus and AI Servo tracking, both of which deliver super fast focusing in near silence.
