(CW3) New Canon 35mm f/1.4L Lens to be Announced in Fall 2015?

EF 35mm f/4L

I and others on the web have been told that Canon may announce a new 35mm “L” lens later this year, possibly before Fall 2015. While we do not have any specs or other information, I was told that some prototypes are already out in the wild undergoing testing. I strongly suppose this will be a f/1.4 lens, also because we had some patents filed by Canon pointing in this direction (1 | 2).

35 Days with the Canon EF 35mm f/2 IS Lens

EF 35mm f/2 IS – Bokeh (all images © Caleb Keiter, used with permission)

Professional photographer Caleb Keiter made one of these real-world reviews I like so much. He got a Canon EF 35mm f2 IS USM lens and tested it for…35 days. Each day a different picture.

The various pictures focus on specific features of the lens, such as sharpness, color rendition, chromatic aberration, bokeh, auto-focus performance, flaring and ghosting, and so on. The things he liked most:

  • The highly versatile 35mm focal length
  • Lightweight construction
  • Excellent image quality
  • Image stabilization
  • Fun to shoot with
  • Fast and accurate autofocus
  • Sharpness
  • Accurate color
  • Max aperture of f/2
  • Close minimum focusing distance
  • Good bokeh
  • Price

In the conclusion he writes:

In my opinion, this lens is going to be tough to beat. On full-frame cameras, the 35mm focal length is perfect. For crop sensor cameras, this lens offers a perspective closer to 50mm. Either way, you’re getting a well-built, lightweight lens with exceptional image quality and impressive image stabilization.

To see all pics and read Caleb Keiter’s thoughts and impressions head over to his post.
