Canon EF 35mm f/1.4 II reviewed by LensRentals

EF 35mm F/1.4L II

The folks at LensRentals posted a brief review of the Canon EF 35mm f/1.4 II, a new Canon prime featuring Blue Spectrum Refractive Optics. They write:

The greatest (and only) shortfall I found with the new Canon 35mm f/1.4L II came in the price of the lens. At $1,799 new, the Canon 35mm f/1.4 II is a staggering $300 more than its now dated predecessor, and double the price of the Sigma Art series lens – a strong competitor to the Canon 35L II. So is it worth the massive price difference?  If you’re a loyalist to Canon, then yes – the Mark II version is a considerable upgrade to the original, and well worth the price difference between the two. However, if you’re willing to venture over to Sigma, the Sigma 35mm f/1.4 Art series lens is still the best buy for the money. At $799 [editors note: it’s actually $899] retail price, the Sigma 35mm Art series will put you right in between the two Canon lenses, and at a considerably lower price than both of them.
