I see I'm not the only one who wants a hood and UV filter for a Canon 35 f2.0. Has anyone tried the 40mm thread Fuji Finepix LH10 hood with this lens? Thanks.

It may be best just to live with it.

I fixed mine a few weeks back. It takes two steps, in my case. And approx. 3 hours of alone-time with the wife out and the cats locked up.

First, a complete teardown of the (quite simple) focusing mount to get to the helicoid, which needs a re-grease. I used heat-resistant lithium grease. Wobble was gone after that.

Second, after a lot of fiddling I found the right entry point for the helicoid and got the lens in the ball park, but infinity focus was off a bit (tested with a known correct adapter on the Sony A7).
I shimmed the brass spacer ring in the lens with one layer of the thicker type of aluminium sticky tape that is used by plummers etc. (thanks Brian Sweeney) to get it spot-on.


In a few weeks I will have a camera to test it on with film and if I manage to get anything worthwhile, I'll post here.

This thread had me dig out my copy of this lens. It's a Type 1 . I'd not previously noticed the wobble of the front section of the lens. I was mulling over whether to use this in preference to my Zeiss Biogon on account of its diminutive size.

Testing it today with Delta 100 in my Leotax confirmed my previous impression of its optical qualities. Soft wide open , might be ok for portraiture but certainly not landscape . 2.8 shows massive improvement with very good central sharpness and decent edge performance. By f4 centre and edges are all very good to excellent.

I'm not clear from what I've read here or elsewhere whether this performance is typical or indeed if Type 1 and Type 2 of this lens offer consistently differing IQ.

I was on the Tamarkin website earlier checking out their second hand equipment and noted they had a Canon 35mm f2 in Leica screwmount for sale. In EX++ condition for $395. No idea if that's a "good" or crazy price, but just in case anyone's looking for one of these...

Hey Johan, thanks for the info - greatly useful for all the owners of wobbly Canon 35/2 (I still have two of these waiting for a rebuilt).

These are wonderful little lenses and I much enjoy peeking into this thread from time to time. Thanks everyone for sharing!

This is exciting, I just bought one and am waiting for delivery. If it's almost as good as the 50/1.4 that I have I will be totally happy.

Hoping to give this thread a little kick start. I've also started a Flickr group dedicated to images from this little lens.

Thanks for the contributions, kuaan, Bingley, and davidnewtonguitars! You were some of the exact folks I was referring to when I said there were others shooting this little lens.

Here's another of mine. I brought the lens to a hockey game, since I knew I'd be shooting in tight quarters. There's pretty poor lighting up in the stands, I think this one was shot at f/2.8 and either 1/15 or 1/8. I was hoping for the best, and this one turned out much better than expected.

Trying to shoot this lens more, despite the fact that prefer and am more comfortable using 50mm. Feel free to add your photos to a Flickr group for this lens that I started!

35/2 on a Canon P -- Fuji Superia 400

I ended up selling the P, but the lens is so good that I still have it even though I don't have anything to attach it to.

This lens continues to impress!
Recently I bought the 7-Artisans 35 F2 M and with this roll of PanF-50 I shot mostly the new lens, and finished the last 5 or 6 exposures with the Canon 35 f2 ltm. Although I didn't shoot the 2 lenses side by side, these 2 shots seemed to me to have similar characteristics.
