Hello, not sure what were your expectations

All I can say, my EF 35mm F/2 IS provides more IQ than my EF 24-150 F/4 IS Mk ii

Yes, the Tamron 35mm 1.4 or the EF 35MM 1.4 Mk ii will provide even better light and IQ... but have you checked their size.. price?

This EF 35 F2 IS.. imho it's the most well-rounded package, a good compromise size/weight/IQ/price

Yes, you can find better IQ... but providing a slight increment in light and IQ... for a massive increment in size/weight/price

Agree - it's a very nice lens - other than the coma at f2.0-f/3.2 at the borders of full frame....  At f/4 perfect even on a 5DSR.  Useable wide open unless bright contrasty edges cause issues at the borders.

As usual, photography equipment is all about:

- Compromise size/weight/IQ/price

- Use case
