1) Getting-ready photos: These usually take place indoors and likely in small rooms. A 35mm is nice, but I find it too close to a 50mm – take two steps back with a 50mm and you’re at 35mm. It’s when you’re in tight quarters that a quality 24mm really shines.
2) Family portraits: Fitting everyone in can be tricky if you don’t have enough lateral space, and you don’t want to awkwardly ask people to sit or kneel in the front. A 24mm usually pulls everyone into the frame.
3) Dance shots: In order to get shots of the dance floor, you need a wide angle to fit everyone in and get that intimate feel.
…and these are just wedding-related applications. I recently shot a march in DC where I was asked to photograph one of the groups as they marched. My 24LII didn’t once leave my camera because there was only about two feet of clearance between me everyone around me, AND we were constantly walking (here’s where a fast lens is critical). When I looked through the 5D3 with my 24mm, it was just right - no distortion and I captured the feel of being in a large crowd. Another time when I used the 24LII all day was at a Cambodian house wedding. It wasn’t a huge house and there were tons of guests.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›

I love my new lens. I've had it a month now. I needed a wider angel lens with a very low f-stop.
