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.

Many of you looking at this lens will be comparing it to the Sigma Art. Yes, they cost almost the same now. Yes, the Sigma is optically superior. But the Sigma doesn't render colors and tones like the Canon. The Sigma won't last you 30 years like this lens will. The Sigma won't have the same support staff backing it up. And ultimately, the Sigma... Isn't a Canon.
If you're on the fence on buying Canon's 35mm f/2 IS, then consider this. If 35mm is a focal length you use from time to time, buy the f/2. If 35mm is your main focal length, save up for this. You'll be thankful later. If you're thinking of buying the mark II, unless you're a full-time pro who needs the very, very best, buy this one instead and use the remaining money for other glass.
This lens has helped take photos that will remind me of some of the most special times of my life, photos that have been in galleries, and photos that hang in my walls all the time. It will take the first photos of my future child. And I hope it lasts long enough I can pass it down to them.
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)
I recommend this lens for low light photos of children. It focuses really fast and has pleasing bokeh (blurry backgrounds) when shot open with the thin DoF. I get my son playing...but also like to get him close up, then the backgrounds are even more blurry. If you shoot in raw, lightroom5 has a nice lens correction factor which will make your pictures look even better (fixes vignetting at 1.4), but you'll be fine without doing it. 35mm and 50mm focal lengths are good for getting kids in their normal enviroment and I haven't taken the 35mm off my camera since getting it. It's quite sharp, but the real reason I like it (besides the great bokeh) is the wide aperture. I normally shoot between 1.4 and 2.8 indoors to use a shutter speed of 1/125 or quicker because my son doesn't stay still.
Next up for me is probably the 135mm f2 L. I would also like the 85mm 1.2L and think that the 35L 85L and 135L are great set of primes. The 85L is expensive so I was thinking of trying portrait focal lengths with the 135L first. Shorter focal lengths and wide angles are supposed to make ears and noses longer and less appealing, but I don't think this lens looks bad or has a lot of distortion. I recommend this lens or the 50L for kids indoors and low light. If you're using a crop camera then a 35 is 50 something...so you're good there also.
