Manufacturer's Description

Fixed focal length lenses generally offer a wider maximum aperture than zoom lenses. From ultra-wide angle lenses ideal for indoor shooting to long telephoto lenses extensively used for wildlife, sports and news photography Canon has the fixed focal length lens to suit you.

The exacting professional’s ultra wide-angle lens, the EF 14mm f/2.8L II USM uses UD and aspherical elements for paramount image quality. A maximum f/2.8 aperture ensures great low light performance.

The ultra wide-angle lens for professionals.

A special perspective Covering a breathtaking 1140 field of view, the EF 14mm f/2.8L II USM goes beyond human perspective. Ideal for capturing small interiors, large subjects at close distances or dramatic landscapes, this highly expressive lens can also be used to create a strong sense of separation between close subjects and background.

L-series construction Like all L-series lenses, the EF 14mm f/2.8L II USM combines precision optics with unsurpassed build quality, reliability and ease of use. Dust and moisture seals offer advanced protection from the elements, even in harsh weather conditions.

Large f/2.8 aperture A maximum aperture of f/2.8 allows for fast, flash-free shooting in low light settings, plus good depth of field control.

Aspherical and UD elements For optimum visual performance, the lens incorporates two types of special elements: aspherical elements to correct spherical aberrations, and Super UD (ultra-low dispersion) elements to eliminate secondary chromatic aberrations. The result is crisp, high contrast and undistorted image quality all the way to the frame peripheries.

Ring USM auto focus with manual override Canon’s ring USM auto focus system employs ultra-sonic frequency vibrations for fast, accurate and virtually silent operation with excellent holding torque. Full-time manual focus override, via a large ring that does not rotate during auto focus, allows photographers to begin fine-tuning a shot instantly.

Super Spectra coating Super Spectra coatings help ensure accurate colour balance and high contrast, and suppress flare and ghosting by absorbing light that might be reflected off internal lens elements and digital EOS sensors.

Circular aperture A circular aperture delivers smooth, even-looking bokeh (background blur) - ideal for isolating subjects at large aperture, or compelling portraiture.

Accessories The EF 14mm f/2.8L II USM features an integrated petal hood to protect the front lens element, improve contrast and prevent vignetting. A lens cap and soft case are supplied.

This lens has exceeded my expectations in every way. I had been using a Canon 17-40 F4 lens previously and whilst it was wide, it doesn't compare to the ultra wide view of this lens.

Pro's
The compact size and weight suits the Canon 5D Mk II very well
It is built to last, it feels like you would expect a top of the range lens to feel
It is sharp from corner to corner
Built in lens hood and cap are designed well for the lens (just remember to protect the lens by putting the cap back on at the end of shooting!)

Con's
Well you can't get away from the price, you get what you pay for - but how many people really need a lens this expensive
Single usage - beyond extreme wide angle shots it can't do much
The case it comes with isn't protective enough (Standard Canon cloth sides)
It's convex lens can't take filters, mean CP filters can't be used
The convex lens can't really be protected by a large hood when walking/moving between locations.

Whilst there are a few niggles with the lens, they are far outweighed by the near perfection in image quality you can achieve with this lens.
For a full frame Canon camera you simply can't improve on this, however it isn't wide enough to use on a crop body, you would be better off with the Canon EF-S 10-22mm.

I must admit, I bought this lens with some trepidation. I already own the EF 24-70 f/2.8 L, and I was looking for something a bit wider. I thought about the apparently excellent EF 16-35 f/2.8 L zoom, which would have complimented my standard zoom very well, but I thought I'd 'take a chance' with this one, albeit with a £700-800 premium or 'gamble' over the price of the wide-angle zoom. BTW, I shoot on a 5d.

All I can say is: 'WHAT a lens!' Quite apart from the colours, saturation, impact etc of the images this work-of-art produces, it's the way in which it literally ignites your own creative passion that makes this lens 'worth it', 100%. You see ordinary, everyday 'things' in a new way, and the images you end up capturing belie the 'simple' 10mm difference between this and the 'short-end' of my standard zoom. Used creatively, this piece of glass produces images of astounding quality, and I regularly surprise myself with the question: ' Did I really take that photo?'

Expensive? Undoubtedly. But to anyone shooting on a full-frame Canon DSLR, I couldn't recommend this lens highly enough.

I'm not a technical guy so this review will not be covering the tech specifications of this lens. I gather that if you're reading this you are pretty much in the same boat I was before buying. You like wide angle, you're thinking of buying the lens, but it's a lot of cash to spend and you just don't know if it's justified.

My background. I used the Canon 500d for a few years. I used the Sigma 10-20 on that body 90% of the time.
I upgraded to the Canon 5D Mark II, and the only lens I had was the 24-70.
My choice for a next lens was to go wide, with either this one or the 16-35mm. Or to go zoom with the 70-200mm.
I could of course try waiting to see if a 14-24mm was going to be released.

I had a trip to Iceland coming up, so I opted for the very safe option of renting this lens for a week. I fell in love with it as soon as I started to use it. After that trip I knew this was the next lens I would buy.

My use of the lens has been exclusively on the 5D Mark II which is full frame. It's wonderful, and very sharp. Unless on holiday, most of my picture taking is done around London - mostly of architecture or the underground. It's a light lens, with fast and quiet autofocus.

It does have a few downsides. If I'm taking handheld brackets I find a lot of movement can creep in around the edges of the images; not so much that you would notice on the display but certainly noticeable when blending a few exposures together. Not a problem when on a tripod, and also not a problem with all shots - I think it just depends on how windy it is, or how steady you are. It's certainly more noticeable on this lens than on the 24-70 however.
You can't use standard filters on it, neither the screw in ones nor the big stopper type ones.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fast perfection 6 Oct. 2012
By AKN - Published on Amazon.com
The Canon EF 14mm f/2.8 II USM Autofocus Lens takes brilliant photos. This is an ultra wide angle with the shortest focal length available of all the L series lenses. It's total angle of view is an amazing 114 degrees. This is as wide as it gets unless you go to a fisheye.

This great lens has newly designed optics. It contains two aspherical elements and two UD glass elements. What this means is that you get great contrast, amazing sharpness all the way to the outer edges, and fewer chromatic aberrations which sometimes happen with high resolution digital SLRs.

This is a lens for pros. It is the highest quality available. To mention the technical aspects, this has a rear focusing system, fast CPU, and ring-type USM with improved electronics. This means it's faster, with more accurate auto focus.

You can use this lens for architurectural shots, or any place you want an ultra wide angel. I like to shoot landscapes with this, as it gives some very impressive views of an entire terrain. When I look at the shots I've taken with this, I feel as if I was right back there, looking at the landscape.

I also get some amazing flower shots with this also. It's fun to play with different subjects when you have an ultra wide angle lens, as it gives a new perspective to anything you shoot with it. The sharpness and richness of colors if fantastic. When you do closeups with this the background is nicely blurred.

This has a fixed hood. It also has a gelatin filter holder in the back. I would say that if you want to take some very artistic jaw dropping photographs, this lens is a great way to do it.
