Why pay top dollar if you only need one or two focal lengths and quality is similar? That’s the question I set out to answer for this review with the following Canon EF prime (fixed focal length) lenses:
- Canon EF 20mm f/2.8 USM, about $469;
- Canon EF 24mm f/2.8, about $339;
- Canon EF 28mm f/2.8, about $259;
- Canon EF 28mm f/1.8 USM, about $459;
- Canon EF 35mm f/2, about $329.
- Canon EF 35mm f/1.4L USM , about $1369.
