Our take on the Canon EF 24mm f/1.4L II USM Lens

by Tara W.
Canon
CANON AUTHORIZED DEALER

Canon designed this pro-quality lens for premium performance with their EOS SLR cameras. It produces vibrant wide-angle images when you pair it with a full-frame camera like the EOS 5D. An extremely large maximum aperture makes it ideal for shooting in lower-light environments. Use this lens on your camera to take group photos at dusk without using a flash, or snap pictures of a vast skyline from the top of a building.

Superior optics ensure you'll get crystal-clear, high-contrast images. Your photos will be clear and detailed across the entire field of view — from one edge to the other — thanks to two aspherical elements. Two UD lens elements help to minimize chromatic aberration, and a special lens coating virtually eliminates ghosting and flaring caused by off-axis sun rays. A powerful ultrasonic motor (USM) provides silent, precise auto focusing.

Features

Overview: The Canon EF24mm f/1.4L II USM lens is an L-series, fixed length wide angle lens for Canon EOS cameras. The lens has two high-precision, large-diameter aspherical and UD lens elements, which result in outstanding image delineation. The lens includes the LP1319 Lens Case and the EW-83K Lens Hood.

Sub Wavelength Coating (SWC): The lens elements have a newly-designed anti-reflective SWC (Sub Wavelength Coating) that minimizes ghosting and flaring across the lens surface, regardless of the angle with which light enters or exits.

Ultrasonic Motor (USM): The EF24mm lens is equipped with an Ultrasonic Motor (USM) for silent, high-speed auto focusing.

Focusing Ring: Regardless of whether you're in manual or auto focus mode, the focusing ring always works. This means you can auto focus on a subject, but manually change the focus by turning the focusing ring.

Focus Mode Switch: You can switch between Auto Focus and Manual Focus using the two-way AF/MF switch on the barrel of the lens.

Lens Hood: The lens kit includes the EW-83K lens hood to keep unwanted light out of the lens, and protects the front of the lens. The hood can be reverse-mounted on the lens for storage. When installed, the hood adds approximately 2-3/16" to the overall length and 15/16" to the overall diameter of the lens.

Optional Filters: The EF24mm lens has a 77mm mounting thread on the front of lens for attaching screw-on type filters.
