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

The focus ring is very smooth, and it has a decent amount of throw in it when going from closet focus to infinity focus. Auto focus is very quick and accurate which allows me to just worry about framing or quick shooting. On my 70D, the live view/movie focusing really is amazing. It's fast, accurate, and quiet. If compared to a hand focused video you would be able to tell the difference with the favor going to the auto-focused.
There is one thing that has caught my eye with this lens, and it's something that has bothered me sometimes. When shooting a close to semi close subject with a brighter background, the blown out highlights draw attention to themselves. This goes along the lines of other "subjective" wants and preferences with photography, so it's up to you as to whether or not it's a big deal. The attached picture shows an example of the issue if look you at the grass on the right but it also shows the sharpness if you look the closest eye.
All that being said, even with the (to me anyway) eye distracting Bokeh, I love my 24mm f/1.4L II USM. It's by far my favorite lens out of all of the ones that have crossed my path with the legendary 135mm f/2L USM coming in an equally solid 2nd.
I got a good copy on first purchase and calibrated the lens and my copy was perfect in my tests. Sweet spot is f4.5 but that sweet-spot is wide. The lens goes down to f1.4 which allows me to take photos at night often without a tripod. It also goes up to f22.
It is a huge piece of 3" wide "glass" that would be perfect for making movies (movie quality video). Just holding it in your hand speaks "high quality." Chromatic aberration is negligible and best of all this lens (Version II) uses reverse engineered moth's eyes (biomimetics) to reduce flare from lights that the version I reportedly had.
The lens takes a 77mm filter and I would recommend getting a UV filter to use as a lens protector. The filter must be a low profile one or you may admit vignette into your images and haven't tried to stack two such low profile filters. I did find a UK site where they got all the UV filters they could get their hands on and tested them on a Hitachi Spectrometer and I was shocked to fine that many UV filters (even very reputable names!) were no better than window glass (which filters all but about 2% of UV anyway). I settled on the Hoya 77mm HMC UV Digital Multi-Coated Slim Frame Glass Filter based on their test results even though it stops down the image by a bit more than another brand that is much more costly (there -- I let cost drive me because the f-stop savings was not worth the excess money) and I can always remove the filter to optimize f-stop if I ever need it (I use it to protect the very expensive eye-ball outer lens). The Hoya (both the digital version and the regular version) works well and cuts UV haze in bright sky photos and such better than other big name brands costing 5X. If you are pro it pays to do a little science to get the edge over your competition -- right? Going with brands that have great reputations is the lazy way to go -- many of these companies are not sitting on their laurels and raking in your $$$ and selling junk! Note: Hitachi Spectrometer testing results are very specific to a particular model of filter by the brand -- you can never assume all of a manufacture's filters are the best because one was (i.e., you can't assume Hoya makes the best Polarizing filter because they make one of the best UV filters).

I will admit, there is a little distortion but nothing that can’t be fixed in Lightroom. What I love most is that buttery f/1.4…. Oh man the detail and crispness is out of this world and has really ameliorated my photography because of this increased range.
I know everyone suggests getting that if you're going to go prime, first start out with a 35mm... but seeing that it works for most occasions, I feel the 24mm is not only an excellent wide-angle lens, but also a worthy competitor for portraits, lifestyle and product photography. I'm so happy I made this purchase I'm just kicking myself I didn’t make it sooner.
