The bokeh is right in line with the other lenses in this line. It's very nice but maybe not as natural and nice as the L series lenses. It's not bad at all, just looks a little different from the L line.
It seems a little strange to have something as wide as a 35mm with IS but I've found it to be incredibly nice. You can handhold this thing shooting super slow! If you were to handhold at 1/2 sec shutter speed and shoot a burst you would probably have several sharp images. Thats crazy! IS works very well and for shooting pics of my kid around the dark house or shooting landscape or something similar in the darkness of early morning or late sunset, this thing shines!! You'll appreciate IS more than you think on this lens. If anything even if you aren't shooting in dark scenarios, your overall hit rate just going up with IS.
Small, lightweight, fast, sharp, IS....what's not to love!
Don't expect L series build but for the money, I would buy this lens over the 35L many times! Having the IS and not having the weight for the L may make this better than the L version for some people.
I've included a few shots I've done with this lens for clients.
There is a bit of a trade off, though - the 35mm focal length gives you a bit more breathing room and lets in more of the environment into the scene than 50mm, but 50mm allows you to better isolate subjects by blurring out background elements more. Versus the 40mm pancake you'll give up a bit of portability and take on more weight to your kit, but overall the trade offs were worth it (faster focus, and wider max aperture).
Though not as solidly built as an L lens, the 35mm f/2 IS is still pretty rugged in it's own right. I don't particularly enjoy using heavy lenses for long periods of time, and this lens strikes a nice balance between heft and build quality. You definitely won't be bogged down by its weight when shooting for long periods of time, which will help you concentrate on your photography. The one drawback of this lens is that a proper hood isn't included with purchase - it's sold separately, and if you want the felt-lined Canon version, it's PRICEY. You'll want to buy a hood eventually, because this lens does exhibit a bit of flare when used outdoors.
My only reticence about the purchase is that I rented the Tamron 35 1.8 VR before I bought this lens and really liked it. I probably liked the Tamron better than the Canon until I realized only the center focus point worked on my 7Dm2. Well, the outer points on the Tamron worked... but those just locked in very incorrect focus each and every time. I figured that was just a harbinger of bad things to come so I passed and went with the Canon instead. It will make close to the same pictures with some tweaking in post - they just render a scene a bit differently and I seemed to prefer the Tamron shots better straight out of the camera.
It's a great lens to stick on your camera a force yourself to use a prime all day. I tend to zoom in too tightly if given a zoom. This lens forces me to break bad habits. I get an extra stop of light and get to carry less weight too.
