Product Description

From the Manufacturer

Canon EF 24mm f/1.4 L USM II Wide Angle Lens for Canon Digital SLR Cameras Canon's newest fixed length L-series lens, the EF 24mm f/1.4L II USM, incorporates the newest in Canon lens technology for spectacular sharpness and impressive performance at all settings. It features two high-precision, large-diameter aspherical lenses for sharpness across the sensor, even in peripheral areas of full-frame sensors.

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.

FEATURES:
  • SWC (Sub Wavelength Coating) - The anti-reflective SWC (Sub Wavelength Coating) differs from conventional coatings by using a much finer structure, which minimizes ghosting and flaring across the lens surface, regardless of the angle with which light enters or exits.
  • Ring-Type USM Motor - Canon's very best autofocusing mechanisms are in place, permitting full-time manual focusing override without requiring a switchover from AF to MF mode.
  • L-Series - Canon's "L-Series" designation indicates that this lens meets their highest quality standards with excellent color reproduction and edge to edge sharpness

Customer Questions & Answers

Customer Reviews

It is great for low-light, and weddings.
Lisa Anderson
So the trick with this lens is that you have to remember to move the focus off the mark for every shot and not refocus at the same distance.
David Siegfried
Color and contrast are perfect and it focuses fast and sharp in all light.

The Canon 24-70/2.8 has been my primary lens for the past two years. It has served me well and was hands down my favorite lens for this focal length, until I tried the 24/1.4 II from Canon. This lens has very fast and accurate focus, and the images are incredibly sharp, even wide-open. I've decided that I can live without the 25-70mm focal length of the 24-70 for this lens.

The minimum focus is 0.8ft, which allows you to get incredibly close to your subject, and the 24mm gives you a very wide view to capture your entire subject.

The 1.4 aperture is incredibly fast. Combine that with fast focus and incredible sharpness and you now have a lens you can use indoors without flash (Note: 1.4 aperture comes with a thin depth-of-field. Focusing on the eye will leave you with a blurry nose and forehead, very smooth bokeh).

I've used the following Canon lenses and this one tops the list and is now on my 5D II 70% of the time (have to leave time for the 70-200).

Canon 16-35/2.8 II: Fantastic lens if this is the focal length you're looking for. This lens has the fish-eye effect at 16mm with full-frame sensors

Canon 50/1.4: Great focal length and speed, but overdue for a refresh. This is a great lens if you're looking for the soft feel of photos.

Canon 85/1.2: Excellent lens, if your subject isn't moving. Very slow focus combined with very narrow depth of field equals out-of-focus photo.

Canon 135/2: Very sharp. Perhaps one of the sharpest lenses Canon makes. The 24/1.4 II is as good if not better.

Canon 70-200/2.8 IS: Hands down the best lens in this focal length (ok, you could argue the 135/2 is better if that's the length you're looking for).

Canon 300/4 IS: Very sharp lens with quick and accurate focus.

This is quite possibly the BEST piece of glass on an EOS mount. That compares to the following lenses in my bullpen: 70-200 2.8 II L, 24-70 2.8 L, 85mm 1.2 L, 50mm 1.2 L, Zeiss 35mm 2.0, Zeiss 21mm 2.8 and a grab-bag of other lenses in the minor leagues. Sure, it's a wide-wide, no zoom - but the creative possibilities opened up by the extraordinarily fast 1.4 glass allows for stunning, sweeping angles of view with razor-sharp subjects that pop off the print. Finally, a wide with foreground, mid and background options. For video, the wide angle of view smooths out operator shake, and at close range the distortion afforded by such a short focal length can produce near-3D images, used properly. I've dropped it from standing height, had the collar replaced, gone through more sun shades than I can remember, and this baby still delivers. Bottom line: I'm a two-body shooter, and without fail one of my 5Ds will have this mounted. For documentary work, lifestyle, architecture and even portraits, this is an exceptionally well-constructed tool. Mama, don't take my 24 away!

Bought this about 1 month ago and have used it for two weddings. Color and contrast are perfect and it focuses fast and sharp in all light. We have a very nice copy of Canon's 17-55 f/2.8 for our 7D, but it falls down a bit in very low light (typically during the reception during first dance). It just can't grab focus in low light....even with the 580EX II attached. We put this baby on and it's dead to right every time. Of course, we have to zoom in and out with our legs, but at least we can get the shot. And that's what it's all about.

9-8-11 update.

Since the first review we added a 5D Mark II and that's even better in low light. The 24 mm is a bit wide and there is some distortion on the edges, but a slight crop, or Photoshop fix, takes care of that so it's not an issue. I still prefer to use it on the 7D, which makes it a 38MM with the 1.6 crop factor. We use the 24-70 f2.8L on the 5D most of the time, except when doing group portrait shots. Then we put this one on because it's cleaner than the 24-70.

Verified Purchase
Generally, I have been very impressed with this lens.

I have had the 16-35mm ii and 24-105mm as well, all well-regarded lenses. I thought it would be fun to compare them. It should be no surprise that this lens exceeds both of them in all respects, image quality, color saturation, distortion, sharpness, chromatic aberration, etc. This is as it should be, given the 24mm being a prime.

If landscaping is your thing or you commonly shoot between f/5.6 and f/22, the 16-35mm @ 24mm (actually, the sweet spot on that lens) fared fairly well, but still short, with regard to picture quality versus this lens - these lenses cost about the same. The added versatility of the zoom also might sway some people to that lens as well. From f/1.4 through f/5.6 apertures, this 24mm prime wins hands-down however - chromatic aberration, contrast, color saturation and (outstanding wow!) sharpness were clearly superior. The 24-105mm is a good general purpose lens, but did not keep up at any respective focal length or aperture setting - possibly that's why they introduced the new 24-70 IS recently.

Bokeh, while not as creamy/dreamy as the 50L or certainly the 85L or 135L, is not unpleasant. Weight & size are very reasonable - it feels solid as opposed to heavy. Construction is robust as you'd expect from Canon's L-series and has full weather-proofing when you add a filter (I've had this lens out in a rain/sleet/snow storm with no problems). It has a close minimum focus distance which is a pleasant surprise and useful, with its 24mm focal length can also cause some interesting perspective shots.

A few other things are worth mentioning: You may need to perform a micro-adjustment to your autofocus.
