Wide and Fast
If you need an ultra-wide angle and a large aperture, one of the following lenses will fit the bill. Ultra-wide-angle lenses can capture scenes beyond your natural field of vision. The EF 15mm f/2.8 Fisheye, the widest of them all, has a 180∞ angle of view. For more normal-looking wide-angle shots, there are longer wide-angle lenses up to 35mm with the maximum aperture you need.

Really, in many respects, that's all that needs to be said. It performs exceptionally well, especially with full frame cameras like the EOS 5D Mark III. A fast 35mm prime lens, it can easily be a good "walk-around" lens to let you take photos of anything you happen to see while you're out and about. It produces clear, sharp images and is capable of some lovely bokeh. The lens itself is solid and very well made, sealed against common weather exposures. I find it very useful for outdoor, low light, portrait, and fast action shots.
I'm very happy with it on my EOS 5D Mk III, and I find that all the glowing reviews were spot on in my experience. It's an "L" lens, and while the phrase "expensive as L" exists for a reason, I'm very satisfied with my purchase and I'm glad Canon went all out to produce an outstanding lens. But I also knew what I was getting and how I would use it. It's not hard to imagine someone buying it based on a lot of fantastic reviews, getting it home, and being disappointed that it wasn't what they were really wanting--especially with the price (low for an "L," but still...).
My advice--unless you can read the technical specifications and know how this lens is going to perform for you, do yourself a huge favor and rent one for a weekend and play with it. Heck, even if you can read all the tech data, still rent it. It only costs a few bucks to rent a lens for a day or a weekend, plenty of time to really get a feel for this lens. Be warned, it will probably just seal the deal if you're considering this lens, but it should take out a lot of anxiety in making the investment. If rental isn't an option, try taking your camera body to the local camera store and seeing if you can try the lens out there in the shop. Most folks will probably be well impressed with the lens, but a few might be able to avoid any "buyer's remorse."
***Update*** Amazon has changed how customer photos are handled. The photos now attached to this review have lost the original text that was attached to them. Bottom line: they were taken in a dimly lit art museum, hand-held. Some detail was lost due to compression to be put on the site, but you can still see clear, vibrant colors. The original photos have better detail.
Bottom line: an outstanding lens worth the investment.
This lens is incredible. The pictures are extraordinary and the focal length is perfect for almost any use. I have used it for portraits of my son and also landscapes and it has excelled at everything. The 1.4 maximum aperture allows me to use this lens in almost any situation when combined with my 5D mark iii. I have found that shooting with prime lenses makes me think more about the pictures I take and I am finding myself in better positions to take better pictures the more I use primes. I am able to previsualize the picture before I take it and very rarely have to move very much after I am in position. I don't miss the zoom at all. My only regret is that I didn't buy this lens sooner. You can keep waiting for the rumored version ii or do yourself a favor and enjoy using this lens now.
As for a previous reviwer commenting about the packaging from Amazon I did not have any issues. Everything was included in the box and it arrived very quickly with no damages.
It being a prime lens, it's sharp - but more than that - it's just incredibly sharp ~ the most beautiful bokeh and it is built like a typical Canon L. The biggest downside is - no weather sealing - would have been a nice addition.
There is some softness at f/1.4 - but even at 2.0 - it is still very sharp.
I shoot in all kinds of conditions and lighting - thus far, I haven't had *much* of a problem with CA except around f/1.4 occasionally ...
Like has been said many times before ~ focus is wicked fast and for my needs that's just perfect ... Color and contrast are superb etc etc ... What hasn't already been said about it ? ;o) ... And? It shipped with a center pinch cap (purchased / shipped from Amazon.com - not B&H, or other).
Very easy to manage / handle - well balanced (feels well balanced on all my cam bodies). I know a lot of people seem to complain about the weight of the lens, but - it's not an issue for *me* - I shoot anywhere from a few candid shots (like a lot of people) to all day jobs. I have yet to run across an L that was lightweight. And the price? It's a Canon L lens - don't expect it to be inexpensive ~ but do expect it to be superior glass :o)
