Canon EF 35mm f/1.4L II Review (long term review by D. Abbott)

Canon EF 35mm F/1.4L II Review

Here is a Canon EF 35mm f/1.4L II review.

Dustin Abbott posted his exhaustive review of the Canon EF 35mm f/1.4L II lens. He says:

One of the top lenses that I continue to feel is special is the Canon EF 35mm F1.4L II – a lens I labeled the best non-super-telephoto lens in Canon’s lineup at the time of my initial review at the end of 2015.  I also characterized it as essentially a “Zeiss Otus lens with autofocus”.  Do I still feel that strongly about it after over four years of use? Like the Canon 100L Macro, the EF 35LII still looks and operates like new, and has paid for itself many times over with product photography, food photography, weddings, events, portraits, and more.  It was so good that it made me eventually sell my 24-70mm F2.8 zoom.

Dustin Abbott’s review comes with a rich set of sample pictures, and as usual with the full review in video. Enjoy.

Key features:

  • EF-Mount Lens/Full-Frame Format
  • Aperture Range: f/1.4 to f/22
  • Blue Spectrum Refractive Optics Element
  • Two Aspherical Elements, One UD Element

Yasuhara Anthy 35mm f/1.8 RF Review (Canon EOS R mount)

Yasuhara Anthy 35mm F/1.8 RF Review

Dustin Abbott posted his Yasuhara Anthy 35mm f/1.8 RF review, a third party RF mount lens for the Canon EOS R full frame mirrorless system.

The Yasuhara Anthy 35mm f/1.8 RF will not cost you a fortune, it’s priced at $299. And, according to the reviewer, it has a “beautiful classic build – much like classic Zeiss [lens]”.

Says Dustin Abbott in his conclusion:

For years I have chosen to pull out vintage lenses occasionally despite the fact that they have far more optical flaws than more corrected modern lenses.  Why?  Because often there is a unique character to them that I enjoy despite their flaws.  Images have a c ertain quality to them that I like.  I also sometimes enjoy the “analog” approach of manual focus and a more deliberate style of photography.  It is that part of my inner photographer that can appreciate the Yasuhara Anthy 35mm F1.8 despite some glaring flaws like poor flare resistance, warm color rendering, and the odd vignette effect.  Used in the right settings, the Anthy35 produces images with a rich color palette and nice bokeh falloff.  It has an artistic, retrograde feel that some photographers will love and others will hate.  I hope that this review and the images contained in it have helped you decide which you are.

Canon RF 35mm f/1.8 Review And Lab Test (capable of delivering high-quality results)

Canon RF 35mm F/1.8 Review Macro IS STM RF 70-400mm

The lens experts at Optical Limits posted a Canon RF 35mm f/1.8 review.

The Canon RF 35mm f/1.8 STM IS Macro is one of the less expensive lenses for the Canon EOS R full frame mirrorless system. At less than or around $500/€500 it is much more affordable than the so called “boutique lenses” for the EOS R.

From their conclusion:

The Canon RF 35mm f/1.8 STM IS macro may not be the sexiest lens around but it is capable of delivering very high-quality results. Images are sharp in the center straight at f/1.8 and the corners are just marginally soft. There’s a substantial increase in quality at f/2.8 and the resolution is truly impressive medium aperture settings. Image distortions, as well as lateral CAs, are low. The same can’t be said about the native vignetting which is rather extreme at maximum aperture. However, auto-correction comes to the rescue so most users will probably just notice a slightly elevated light falloff at f/1.8. The bokeh is generally nicely rendered with a silky background blur and smooth out-of-focus highlights. The foreground blur is less ideal though. Bokeh fringing (LoCA) is present at large aperture settings but that’s hardly surprising. However, a more ugly effect are focus shifts when stopping down (RSA) which seems to have a negative impact on AF accuracy as well.
