The Canon EF 35mm f/2 IS USM updates the long-serving EF 35mm F2, and features an all-new optical design, ultrasonic focusing and optical image stabilization. Often called the "photojournalists' favorite" focal length, 35mm is an ideal standard for candid, street and medium-distance portrait photography. Thanks to its image stabilization system, this new prime is very useful in poor light (assuming your subject doesn't move), and unlike its predecessor, the new 35mm F2 focusses quickly and silently.
