Shortly after selling my telephoto lens last December, I bought my first prime lens. It was a Canon EF 35mm f/2 lens that finally made it possible to take photos of my adorable but always moving nephew without motion blur. I also finally got that beautiful blurred background that gives my snapshots that professional, shallow depth-of-field look.
Since then I upgraded to the Ultrasonic 28mm f/1.8 lens, and I find myself using the 35mm lens a lot less. It’s not that the 35mm lens is bad or anything, it’s just that I prefer the quiet USM focusing of the wider lens.
If you are in the New York area and are shopping for an inexpensive Canon 35mm prime lens, contact me with the form below and we’ll set up a meeting and you can check it out. If you prefer to shop through Amazon, I have listed the lens there too.
Update: Despite someone on Craig’s List trying to scam me, I sold my lens this weekend!
