Yongnuo 35mm f/2 review (a punch for the price, PetaPixel)

Yongnuo 35mm f/2

How does the $120/€110 priced Yongnuo 35mm f/2 perform? Our friends at PetaPixel felt the pulse of Yongnuo’s budget lens.

In the conclusion PetaPixel writes:

Yongnuo’s YN 35mm f/2 is an excellent value — let’s just get that out of the way. For $120, the lens is much cheaper than its Canon counterparts. Picking up a used Canon EF 35mm f/2 lens would run you around $280, while the brand new Canon EF 35mm f/2 IS USM would run you around $550. Comparing the Yongnuo to Canon’s older lens is quite easy: we say go with the Yongnuo YN 35mm f/2 for smoother bokeh and similar performance.

The Yongnuo EF 35mm f/2 is available on eBay by Yongnuo itself for $116/€107. The Yongnuo 35mm IS also available on Amazon.
