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 lens is sharp sharp sharp. In full crop, it is sharper than my 50mm f/1.2 and 70-200mm f/2.8, or any lens I own. Even at wide open.
24mm in FF is a great focal length for walking around. Especially when you are in a crowded environment. You can get really up and close with your subject, because the minimum focus distance is very short.
Great construction, very solid build, complete with rubber gasket. What more can you ask for in a lens ? AND it uses a 77mm filter, so you can reuse that 70-200 filter.
It does vignette a little, but it is so even and natural, they just look beautiful.
If there is only one lens I can take with me to everywhere ... This would be it.
If you are in the market for a short prime, get this !
Some sample shot shoot in f/1.4 f/5.6 and f/22
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.
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.
