Additional information:

Canon EF 35-105 mm f/ 3.5-4.5   is a standard zoom lens for 35 mm Canon

The lens is one of the best low-end kit lenses for Canon EOS cameras. It is light and compact and has rather fast autofocus.

It had been manufactured before Canon started its marketing policy and released its L-series.

It had fully retained the optical scheme of a legendary Canon FD 35-105.

In comparison with modern low-end zoom lenses, picture quality is much better. It is sharp when wide open. 

The optical scheme of the Canon EF 35-105 mm f/ 3.5-4.5 includes only pure glass elements, no plastic. The lens delivers  excellent image quality. When wide open at 105 mm, it exhibits  amazing portrait soft-effect while retaining sharpness.

Focusing is based on a push-pull principle,   i.e. you do not rotate the zoom ring, you just move the barrel form or to the camera. It should be noted that after a little practice this method will seem more efficient for fast framing.

The Canon EF 35-105 mm f/ 3.5-4.5 is a good choice as a kit everyday lens!

Owner reviews: Canon EF 35-105 mm f/ 3.5-4.5

STiv 20.04.2013 00:22:19
Period of use: 2 years

Strengths:

Real glasses, from here and picture, very good picture. Sharp, easy, compact. The construct was pleasant, dangles nothing, doesn't leave (at least at me), a pomp (trombone) very much it was pleasant. It is a lot of positive emotions.


Weaknesses:

Slow and noisy auto focus, approximately as at 50mm f/1.8.


Comments:

Long doubted - to take it or 28-105, but it turned out so that opportunity to compare both lenses was presented. The choice turned out very fast, even from the first pictures it became clear what will be a choice.

I offered the USM motor and wider corner, I chose 35-105 and while it is happy.




Сергей Бородин 1.1.2000 00:00:01
Period of use: 4 months

Strengths:

Reliable full-time lens, optically very good. Gives a sharp image at all apertures and focal length. At the 105mm really soft portrait effect (see attached file)

Weaknesses:

Minimum focusing distance is large. And at least the minimum focal length to 28.

Comments:

I like the scheme of the zoom - Trambon when you get used to shooting becomes much more speedily. Generally, this lens has left the most pleasant experience.
