About Canon

Professional wide-angle lens with an ultra-large maximum aperture of f/1.4. This is the first EF lens to employ both a replicated aspherical lens element to suppress distortion and spherical aberration, and a UD lens element to correct lateral chromatic aberration. Thanks to the floating construction, excellent corner-to-corner delineation is attained from 10 in. (25 cm) to infinity.

Glad I purchased this lens

I fell in love when I purchased the 35mm 1.4. The 24mm 1.4 makes shooting pre wedding shots a breeze. I really love shooting prime lenses for weddings.

Can't believe Canon upgraded this lens!

By

from San Diego, CA  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

I had some experience with this lens before I bought it-- fell in love with it instantly. I just love the construction, the sharpness, the contrast. Nearly perfect. When Canon came out with the II version, I jumped at the chance to get the original at a better price. I can't believe they thought this needed an upgrade. What a steal!

I bought this for natural lighting in low light conditions and it has been great, though a little pricey.

awesome wide angle

By

from Seattle, WA  -  Professional

Sharp and light. The only wide angle lens that has the aperture needed for shallow depth-of-field photography. Great for weddings and events. My standard lens for "getting-ready" shots in a hotel room or salon. Also great for capturing group shots/dancing at receptions. Pricey, but worth it.
