Product Description

Product Description

The Canon EF 24mm f/1.4L II USM Lens is a venerable wide-angle prime lens that provides sharpness and impressive performance at all settings. Its large maximum aperture of f/1.4 allows for superb low-light photographs, and its circular aperture and narrow depth of field provide pleasing background blur. It is the ideal tool for photojournalists, landscape and event photographers, and anyone who enjoys taking images from a wider perspective.
This version "II" improves greatly over its predecessor with the addition of two high-precision aspheric lenses, which correct aberration including curvature of field and distortion. Chromatic aberration common in wide-angle shooting is also reduced by the inclusion of two UD lenses, which ensure optimum image quality and corner-to-corner detail.
The EF 24mm f/1.4L II USM features Canon's near-silent Ultra Sonic Motor (USM), which provides super-fast auto-focusing with full-time manual override. The floating internal focus system also helps maintain high image quality throughout the focal range.

I bought this lens mainly because I work in tight areas. I used the lens at f/1.4 or f/1.8 without any IQ/PQ problem. I'm not pixel junkie, I rather care about the image itself. This lens offers beautiful images - sharpness, contrast, bokeh, etc. It offers even considerable depth of field as wide if you have a proper object-background positioning - which I like. I use it on Canon 5D M2.

As any such wide lens, it has perspective distortions. But this is not bad (at all). This is a feature. If you want a perspective compression, you'd go for 135mm f/2 or so. Indeed, this distortion offers new creative opportunities, if you know how to use it. It will give you very different images. If you are not sure of 24mm (or any fixed focal length of a prime lens), I'd recommend to experiment with 24-70mm f/2.8 or 24-105 f/4 lenses - at fixed focal lengths (without zooming). Basically I observe that they offer quite similar image qualities. Yet, this lens is a viable option if you want the f/1.4 fastness.

5.0 out of 5 stars A top quality piece of glass. 10 Nov 2012
By mal
I have held off writing a review on this lens for almost a year. I really wanted to see how it performed on a range of shoots in a variety of lighting conditions. With images taken on a Canon 50D and EOS 1D mk IV. My conclusion is this is truly a wonderful lens.

Handling of Flare is particularly good especially when stopped down, Chromatics are again extremely good, possibly better than any other Canon L series I have tried or own, shots of fine tree branches against a blue sky show very little of that all to familiar halo effect. Edge distortion is handled so well its hard to see any except when displaying very large images. The evenness of light and colour capture are excellent. When using the lens hood there was no visible vignetting or edge darkening.

Build quality is up to L series standard and can take assignment knocks and bumps with ease. It also seems to be good at keeping out the rain.

So what are the downsides ? Cost is one for sure, this is not a cheap bit of kit, Maybe the weight of the lens could be a factor, other than that it has to be one of the best lenses I have owned since my old Nikkor 24mm f1.4

I have compared many images from the Prime 24mm 1.4 against those from my General purpose 24-70 f2.8 L Series zoom and in all accounts the Prime lens wins no question about it. If a 24mm format is what you are looking for you really couldn't do much better than one of these.

5.0 out of 5 stars Solid built lens 2 July 2012
Verified Purchase
In typical style of Canon they produce a top class lens, which feels solid and gives good reliable performance. I was debating between this and the cheaper none L series and was really glad I made the choice.

I am using this lens for astro photography primarily and am pleased with it's response and speed.
