The Canon EF 35mm f/1.4L USM is a large-diameter wide-angle lens with f/1.4 capability that optimises brightness. It is the successor to the EF 24mm f/1.4 USM and further complements the Canon L-series of wide-angle lenses. The optical system includes a polished aspherical lens along with a floating element, providing high image quality with outstanding correction for both wide f/1.4 aperture and aberration effects and outstanding definition over the entire image area. In addition, the lens’s ring USM and silent AF operation make it an outstanding L-series lens for both professional and advanced amateur users.
REVIEWS (last update: 25.10.05)
Ian Andrews reviewed the Canon EF 35mm f/1.4L USM at ePhotozine and wrote:
“The build quality and heritage of his lens is unquestionable and for full frame sensors or 35mm, it is still in the top flight. As a standard prime on a cropped sensor dSLR it will do a good job, but might just be out-performed by some of the younger opposition.
In summary the main positive points of the Canon 35mm f/1.4 L USM are:Excellent Build, Good low light performance, Consistent performance,
Negative points are: Price”
