From the Manufacturer
Designed primarily for discerning landscape and architectural photographers, the Canon EF14mm f2.8L II USM lens is ideally suited to the EOS-1Ds Mark III's full-frame capability. Measuring 3.7 inches in length and weighing in at under 23 ounces, this ultra-wide angle L-series prime lens is well corrected for rectilinear distortion, provides a 114-degree diagonal angle of view, and delivers high-speed autofocus with higher image quality overall including superior peripheral image quality, compared to its predecessor, the stalwart EF 14mm f2.8L USM lens.
While its large diameter, high-precision aspherical and UD elements, optimized lens element positioning, and flare and ghost-reducing lens coating ensure that this lens delivers the top optical performance in its professional class, Canon has added other features photographers have been asking for--improved dust and water resistance incorporated around the mount, switch panel and focusing ring, and a round aperture that creates a nice background blur and makes it easier to recognize an out-of-focus scene in less than brightly lit conditions.Compatible with all EOS Digital SLR cameras. Redesigned optics including 2 high-precision Aspherical elements and 2 new UD-glass elements. Built-in lens hood; dust- and moisture-proof. 11-group, 14 element design. 114∫ diagonal view

This is a "rectilinear" wide angle lens. This means that horizontal and vertical lines in a photograph will remain straight, rather than curving as they would in a "curvilinear" (aka "fish-eye") lens. This is the widest rectilinear wide-angle lens made by Canon (one of the very widest on the market.) It creates stunning architectural or landscape photographs. If you want to see samples of images taken with this lens, flickr has a group dedicated to it (as they do for most lenses). Search Flickr for a group named "Canon EF 14mm f/2.8L II USM"
The lens physically has excellent build quality. The tulip-style lens hood is metal and is a permanent part of the lens body. It is not removable (and it comes with a special lens cap designed to work with the tulip hood). There are no front filter threads (such is typical of very wide angle lenses like this one.) however there is a gel-style filter holder at the rear element (products such as Rosco Cinegel.) Unfortunately this means there are certain types of filters that are commonly desired for landscape photography such as polarizing filters or gradient neutral density filters which can't really be rear-element mounted since the point of the filter is to be able to control it's placement and orientation. I have not found a solution for this problem other than to get particularly large size filters plates (from companies such as Singh-Ray or Lee filters) and hand-hold them in front of the lens.
As is common for "L" series lenses, this lens is weather-sealed against dust & drips. It also includes a Canon gray-suede soft-pouch.
I consider this lens to be a one-of-a-kind -- nobody else really makes anything that does what it does or comes close to competing with it in terms of quality. I absolutely love my copy. My only real complaint is that the price is steep (I happened to buy mine when Canon was offering a rebate on it. Even with the rebate it's still a very expensive lens.)
The Canon 17-40 is a decent wide angle zoom if you must have zoom, but I have both and I choose this lens at least 3 out of 4 times. When hiking, I often simply carry the 14mm and my 24-105. For landscape work, those two almost always suffice. When I get home from special places, this lens has captured many of my favorite images for the trip.
Of course, it is anything but a portrait lens. Though remarkably not distorting for landscapes and such, it can make a person look mighty out of whack.
It's expensive, but since it brings home the images that reign over the rest, it's well worth the investment for the landscape photographer.
Protruding front lens element needs to be handled with care, but the lens cap works well to protect it. Filter is not necessary since the lens is coated in a way that colors don't fade and appear natural in outdoor shots.
Only con is its price tag - try to find a good deal!

Io non so come e perché, ma l'ho pagato 1140€ venduto e spedito da Amazon con prime. Ripeto non so come sia stato possibile, ma durante una settimana è partito da 1700 e poi si è abbassato di 100 € al giorno. Non potevo non prenderlo al volo, dato che sono un patito del grandangolo estremo.
Difetti: appena entra un raggio di sole ti spara un flare brutto: sbavato e difficilissimo da correggere in pp. Ľho venduto per questo motivo. Probabilmente la lente così bombata è predisposta a questo difetto, però io posseggo dei samyang fisheye, non af, economici, che hanno meno precisione e nitidezza, però non un flare così esasperato.
