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.

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.Read more ›

I have no idea why there's only a 6-blade aperture in this thing. I think they could have done much better. It doesn't usually matter, but it makes bright point sources look ... interesting. Not necessarily bad, but interesting. The effect on bokeh is negligible, since you're not going to get much bokeh.
Minor quibbles come from the front element, which of course doesn't accept filters, though there's a gel holder in the back. Next up, the hood (permanent, can't be moved/detached) is mostly useless; stopping flare often requires hands strategically placed to block the incoming sunlight. Finally, the lens cap only barely locks onto the hood, and comes off easily when removing the lens from the bag. I don't know why they couldn't design a lens cap that's secure -- some notches in the hood into which some clips actually engage would be a huge improvement.
Build quality is up there with the best black L lenses. Handling and use is good. The issues the lens has don't really make it any less exceptional, it's a lens you're going to love despite its minor flaws.
I can't see a good argument for getting this lens if you're on a crop body; you're paying for full frame corners in this sort of glass, and it doesn't make an exceptionally interesting focal length on anything short of full frame. It might be worth considering on APS-H.
