Pros: Fast auto-focus, Superior build quality, Super-sharp images
Okay, it is an excellent lens, especially in combination with the 6D at low light level. But is is larger than I thought (I did hope it'd have the size of a 28/1,8), and vignetting is quite significant. Up to now (Feb. 5, 2013) I did not find any any lens correction data for the camera or with EU or DPP.
On APS-C, in combination with a cheap rubber lens shade, it is good lens for street. Even here, the IS helps!

Review 2 for EF 35mm f/2 IS USM
Location: Cleveland, OH
Used this product for: 1 to 3 months
Expertise Level: Advanced Amateur
Mostly used for: Landscape/Nature
Canon Enthusiast: 6 to 10 years
Great all around lens
Date:January 19, 2013
Pros: Fast auto-focus, Super-sharp images, low ca, great for low light
Cons: doesn't come with l series accessories
I like the lens very much for general shooting purposes. It seems to be average in a lot of qualities; not excellent or terrible in any aspect. For low light or close focusing the IS is a great feature. The lens is light weight, and the manual focus ring is much more dampened compared to the 35L. I think it's a nice upgrade to the old f2, but the price is high.
