  • Great price for a quality prime lens
    Verified BuyerReviewed by BestBuyBuddy - November 6, 2021

    Picked this up when it was on sale and I’m so glad that I did. The RF lenses are in every way a superior build to the EF line. This is not a L series lens, but you’ll immediately notice the quality of this budget prime the first time you pick it up. It is fantastic in low light and even pretty good for macro photography with only minor chromatic aberrations with the aperture wide open at the edges. It finds its focus quickly for photography, and that quick focus slows down some for videography for a near silent focus when recording. Overall an excellent lens for the price and non-L series build that also includes lens Image Stabilization.

  • A must-have in your camera bag for a budget!
    Verified BuyerReviewed by BrandonR - January 3, 2021

    This lens is incredible, especially for the price. The new RF glass is truly crisp. Yes, you can get cheaper EF lenses but trust me there is a quality difference just to step up the price a little bit. The chromatic aberration on this lens is a lot less than my previous lenses. It isn't perfect but it can handle a lot more. The focus is a bit slow and noisy, however, for portrait sessions, I haven't found this to be a negative factor. With this being a budget lens on the RF line, I HIGHLY recommend picking it up. 90% of the time in my sessions this is the only lens I use. It is super versatile and lets you get up really close depending on what you are capturing.

  • Wow! Amazing lens!
    Verified BuyerReviewed by ATMcC - September 11, 2020

    Let me say that the price does not reflect the quality of this lens. I’m happy to pay the low price, but the lens is worth more than you will pay in my opinion, which is a good thing!! The auto focus is very fast. The control ring is new to me but I had no problem getting use to using it. If you don’t want to use it, you can simply leave it unassigned. The image quality is tack sharp but this isn’t too surprising being that #1 it’s a prime lens and #2 it’s Canon. I have EF lenses and I purchased the EF-RF adapter but I wanted to try at least one native RF lens and this was the least expensive option. After using this RF 35mm 1.8 I will definitely be spending some serious money on more RF lenses. Having the back of the lens sitting so close to the sensor with the large RF mount makes for amazing images. Don’t underestimate this lens!

  • Wide angle macro with amazing DOF!
    Verified BuyerReviewed by GulliverFan - November 2, 2020

    Great lens -- fun to use on the Canon RP with the manual focusing indicator bar on the screen in Live View. The depth-of-field grows significantly with small changes in distance-to-subject and aperture, so there's a learning curve, but it's actually kinda thrilling, having only ever used 100-105mm macro lenses, where the DOF is minimal. Lens is super-compact and has become my walk-around lens since I bought it!

  • Do it
    Verified BuyerReviewed by CanonEOSR - March 12, 2021

    Great 1st prime lens for your new mirrorless camera. The shallow depth of field gives you those nice blurry backgrounds your looking for and the image stabilization works great on this. Great for low light shooting and autofocus on this lens is fast and quite. The macro capabilities are pretty good and for the price, this lens is worth it.
