$200 Off Canon 35mm f/2.0 IS Lens

$200 Off Canon 35mm f/2.0 IS Lens

Beginning now until September 7, B&H Photo is offering $200 off of the Canon 35mm f/2.0 IS lens. Normally it goes for almost $800 but right now it's $599.00. In our review of the 35mm, we found it to be pretty on par with the L glass in terms of performance. It's tack sharp, has image stabilization and is equipped with a quiet, fast and reliable autofocus motor. Also on sale for a limited time are the Canon 24mm f2.8 and the Canon 28mm f/2.8 lenses. fstoppers-canon-prime-lens-sale

however, it is still very expensive...

^ I was about to say the same thing. 60% off the original tag would def work for me.

if you both ever had one, you'd know you're wrong.
I had one for the last 4 months since a friend of mine needed a 24-70 and I wanted to test this lens a lot, and loved it: it definitely can replace your fatty standard zoom lens. I shoot a whole wedding with this lens on my 5D2, switched to a 50 1.4 on 40D a couple of closer shots and that was it. I've shot documentary style handheld video and stills for a band's national tour with Bacardi and never ever wanted another lens. my backpack has never been lighter.

AF is good, IS is amazing when shooting video [I actually don't ever feel I need it while shooting stills], build quality is top, overall image quality is over the top. I wish it was much smaller. but then IS wouldn't fit.

but then again, I'll buy the sigma instead :D
the faster glass and the overall even better image quality pays off the extra bulk. and I don't really need IS, so...

to me, perfect price point would be 650$. but then who would buy a 35L any longer?

It's not just B&H, same price on Amazon as well. Curious why it's so discounted though, testing a permanent price change or something new on the way already?

Yup, permanent change, still $599 everywhere.
