Canon 35mm the perfect travel lens!

This is not just an ordinary 35mm lens but one in the new series from Canon RF lenses. Our primary lens so far has been the Canon 50mm 1.2 but it is from 1992 – so time for changes!

The Canon 35mm lens is perfect as a travel lens is not only because of the natural wide-angle but also because of the high maximum aperture of f/1.8 that makes it perfect for portraits and street photos!

Besides being perfect for photography the 35mm Canon RF has a built-in stabilizer. This makes it incredible for video shoots and longer exposure pictures too. This will definitely be our primary lens from now on.
