It's not the lens, it's you.

It doesn't take much to beat that 35L in 2012, the 35L was great for 1998 but technologies have advanced quite a bit over all these years, I have the 35L myself for many years, it served me well for in door low light and out door portrait for a long time but never really like it for my landscape works, so I had been searching for 35mm lens with great local contrast and edge performance, and I settled with the Zeiss 35 F2 and later the Zeiss 35 F1.4, now I hardly touch that lens any more. Sounds like about time for Canon to update that dinosaur.

If you can't shoot decent landscapes with the 35L, it's you, not the lens.
