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.

Thanks for sharing your experience. You saved me the trouble to do what you did ;).

I also think that the only reason to get an f2 prime would be to use it wide open.
So, if the lens is not sharp enough at that aperture, then why bother.

Sometimes you have to comprise and you can always sharpen up a photo that is soft in PP with good technique it will look as though it is tack sharp.

I'd stay away from the 35IS though if I were you.....just get the 28 1.8 or the 35F2 or if you have the money better yet the 35 1.4L.
