Style Name:EF 24mm f/1.4L II USM

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.

Manufacturer's Description

Fast aperture prime lens
The EF 24mm f/1.4L II USM has a large maximum aperture of f/1.4, offering the chance to capture superb low-light photographs, as well as a circular aperture and narrow depth of field to give pleasing background blur. A focal length of 24mm is ideal for wide-angle photography: making the lens well-suited to the needs of photojournalists, landscape photographers and those who enjoy taking images from a wider perspective.

Aspheric and UD elements
Image quality has been greatly improved with the EF 24mm f/1.4L II USM thanks to the addition of two high-precision aspheric lenses to correct aberration including curvature of field and distortion. Chromatic aberration common in wide-angle shooting is also combated by the inclusion of two UD lenses, ensuring optimum image quality and corner-to-corner detail.

Sub-wavelength structure lens coating
Designed for use in digital photography, Canon’s patented lens element coating helps minimise the ghosting and flare caused by internal reflections. By eliminating the cause, the coating reduces reflections and helps to deliver crisp, clear images.

USM focus motor
The EF 24mm f/1.4L II USM’s near-silent Ultra Sonic Motor (USM) 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.

Robust build quality
Canon lenses are built to withstand regular use in the most testing environments. Weather and dust seals provide added protection, and a lens hood and pouch are also included in the package.

Lead-free optics
Environmentally friendly lead-free glass is used throughout the construction of the EF 24mm f/1.4L II USM.

Style: EF 24mm f/1.4L II USM Verified Purchase
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.

Style: EF 24mm f/2.8 IS USM Verified Purchase
I bought this lens to give me a small, lightweight, stowable wide-angle when going out with just the 70-200 on the camera, and to have a wide-angle prime in my kit... and to have an indoors, flash-free wide-angle option. It meets all 3 goals very well. I've done decent hand-held shots at 0.5 sec with it.

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.

Style: EF 24mm f/2.8 IS USM Verified Purchase
I bought this lens primarily because of its light weight and focal length that is ideal for landscape photography. It is a mite on the expensive side, but the results have impressed me and I have been very pleased with the purchase. Compared with a zoom lens, it converts the camera into something that is much more portable and easy to walk around with such as on a walking trip, or on holiday.

One of the best of the non L Canon primes. Great for the "almost" wide shot on full frame and portraits. Works well with my 5DIII.
