21Dec Canon 35mm f2 IS Lens, why?

The Canon 35mm f2 IS lens makes me scratch my head with wonder, as in I wonder what they were thinking. The original Canon 35mm f2 lens wasn’t great with it’s ugly looking bokeh and very soft corners even on a crop body, but the price was around $300 or less making it’s short comings more […]
