5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Lens, July 11, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Canon EF 35mm f/1.4L USM Wide Angle Lens for Canon SLR Cameras - Fixed (Electronics)
I just bought this lens 2 months ago because I wanted to use it to take pictures of my newborn son and 2 year old daughter. Prior to this, my 28-135 lens lived on my camera and was most often used to take pictures of my daughter in the house. I like to take pictures without the flash when ever possible, so I found that I was most often using it zoomed all of the way and I was always having to take a bunch of pictures just hoping that I could catch 1 or 2 when she was not moving so they would not be blurry. I was initially looking for a faster zoom lens but since I was taking so many pictures zoomed out, I decided to give a fast prime lens a try. So I decided to buy the 35 f1.4 in hopes of getting better pictures of my kids. I have not been disappointed. This 35mm 1.4 lens is so fast that in good light it will completely stop their movement and it will take nice pictures in low light and still autofocus with no problems. I am just an amateur and still have a lot to learn about photograpy but this lens has turned out some outstanding pictures already that I never saw with my mid level lenses that I initially bought with my camera. This lens has made me such a fan of fast prime lenses that I just orderd the 135 f2. Now I wish that I would have just bought this lens from the start instead of the zooms that will probably just sit in my camera bag until I decide to sell them.

Due to all of the negative comments on lens packaging from Amazon, I decided to buy it through Adorama. I paid about $20 extra at the time to do this but the lens came packed well.
