I bought the EF 35mm f/2 IS USM. But I returned it after taking a few test shots. This lens is very soft at F2. I found this disappointing.

This is very surprising. Lensrentals tested 5 copies of the 35 IS against 5 copies of the 35L. They found the 35 IS to be pretty much the same at F2 as the 35L at F2 (fractionally better in the center, a bit worse on the corners). The 35L at F2 is very sharp indeed. Perhaps you had a bad copy. Can you post your results?
