ts large maximum aperture of f/1.4 allows for superb low-light photographs, and its circular aperture and narrow depth of field provide pleasing background blur. It is the ideal tool for photojournalists, landscape and event photographers, and anyone who enjoys taking images from a wider perspective. Common in wide-angle shooting is also reduced by the inclusion of two ud lenses, which ensure optimum image quality and corner-to-corner detail. The floating internal focus system also helps maintain high image quality throughout the focal range. Canon's very best autofocusing mechanisms are in place, permitting full-time manual focusing override without requiring a switchover from af to mf mode.
EF 24mm f/1.4L II USM Wide Angle Lens
Canon's fixed length L-series lens, the EF 24mm f/1.4L II USM, incorporates advanced 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 well-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.

I will admit, there is a little distortion but nothing that can’t be fixed in Lightroom. What I love most is that buttery f/1.4…. Oh man the detail and crispness is out of this world and has really ameliorated my photography because of this increased range.
I know everyone suggests getting that if you're going to go prime, first start out with a 35mm... but seeing that it works for most occasions, I feel the 24mm is not only an excellent wide-angle lens, but also a worthy competitor for portraits, lifestyle and product photography. I'm so happy I made this purchase I'm just kicking myself I didn’t make it sooner.
The focus ring is very smooth, and it has a decent amount of throw in it when going from closet focus to infinity focus. Auto focus is very quick and accurate which allows me to just worry about framing or quick shooting. On my 70D, the live view/movie focusing really is amazing. It's fast, accurate, and quiet. If compared to a hand focused video you would be able to tell the difference with the favor going to the auto-focused.
There is one thing that has caught my eye with this lens, and it's something that has bothered me sometimes. When shooting a close to semi close subject with a brighter background, the blown out highlights draw attention to themselves. This goes along the lines of other "subjective" wants and preferences with photography, so it's up to you as to whether or not it's a big deal. The attached picture shows an example of the issue if look you at the grass on the right but it also shows the sharpness if you look the closest eye.
All that being said, even with the (to me anyway) eye distracting Bokeh, I love my 24mm f/1.4L II USM. It's by far my favorite lens out of all of the ones that have crossed my path with the legendary 135mm f/2L USM coming in an equally solid 2nd.
The lens is sharp sharp sharp. In full crop, it is sharper than my 50mm f/1.2 and 70-200mm f/2.8, or any lens I own. Even at wide open.
24mm in FF is a great focal length for walking around. Especially when you are in a crowded environment. You can get really up and close with your subject, because the minimum focus distance is very short.
Great construction, very solid build, complete with rubber gasket. What more can you ask for in a lens ? AND it uses a 77mm filter, so you can reuse that 70-200 filter.
It does vignette a little, but it is so even and natural, they just look beautiful.
If there is only one lens I can take with me to everywhere ... This would be it.
If you are in the market for a short prime, get this !
