Canon's newest fixed length L-series lens, the EF 24mm f/1.4L II USM, incorporates the newest in Canon lens technology for spectacular sharpness and impressive performance at all settings. It features two high-precision, large-diameter aspherical lenses for sharpness across the sensor, even in peripheral areas of full-frame sensors. Lens elements have a newly-designed anti-reflective SWC (Sub Wavelength Coating) that departs from conventional coatings by using an extremely fine structure that minimizes ghosting and flaring across the lens surface, regardless of the angle with which light enters or exits. It also features two UD lens elements to minimize chromatic aberrations, incorporates rear-focusing, ultrasonic, quiet and high-speed AF with full-time manual override. A circular aperture provides beautiful out-of-focus detail and offers legendary dust- and water-resistant L-series construction using only lead-free glass.

An Inspiring Lens!

This is a lens of unparalleled quality that inspired my vision from the first test run out of the box. In the few weeks that I have owned it I feel like it is truly an extension of myself as I try to capture images that suit my aesthetic style. I've always relied on Canon cameras and lenses, but this purchase has increased my creative energy enormously as it's ability to capture sharp, consistently bright and faithfully colored images bring me profound satisfaction in my work!
Beautiful lens, Great in Low Light

Surpassed my expectations. A definite improvement over Version I.
Courteous staff handled problem nicely

This particular lens was "off" dramatically in terms of focus accuracy. This was particularly disappointing because it was to go on a European trip with me (it got sent back instead). I have several other L lenses and will consider this an anomaly unless the next one is the same. Canon L lenses are generally beautifully designed and built items.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Very good quality at high price
from Virginia Tech
I used it on APS-C camera, so the view angle is relatively "normal" and the sharpness from corner to center is consistently superb. The big aperture helps in low light/indoor, however too shallow depth of view means the lens might miss focus frequently. If your camera have AF calibrating, then that will be fine.
