Canon 35 F2 IS USM vs Canon F 1.4 L USM
6 months ago

I am looking at getting a 35mm low light prime.

I am comparing the above lenses on a 60D

F2 IS

  • Has IS
  • Slower F2
  • Lacks L lens build quality
  • Much cheaper
  • Smaller and lighter
  • Newer

F1.4

  • Faster F1.4
  • L lens construcion
  • Much more expensive
  • Bigger and heavier
  • Older

I am an amateur who is keen to improve. Is there any other reason to spend more and not get IS?

Many thanks for any insights or comments
