        Comments about Bower 24mm f/1.4 Wide-Angle Lens for Canon:

        One of the best lenses for night photography you can get. The ability to shoot at lower ISO's(1600-2000) for night-time landscapes is the only way to make good quality large prints. At a third the price of the Canon L, this lens is a no brainer.

        Comments about Bower 24mm f/1.4 Wide-Angle Lens for Canon:

        For the price this lens was a steal.
        I was debating on whether to give it 4 or 5 stars due to the fact that when this lens is all the way open it is a bit fuzzy.
        Close it down to a 2.8 however and it's just fine.
        For the price, and the nice Bokeh I decided on a 5. Perfect for professionals and hobbyists alike.

              Have used this lens for night star shots and it works great. No comas on the side. This works for great for night sky pictures, haven't used it for any other type of photos. It is a manual focus lens but you have to use manual focus on night sky shots.

                    I bought this lens as a lower cost alternative to canon's 24L. My reason for purchasing this lens was for night landscapes and therefore the lack of AF and manual aperture was not an issue. Vignetting is an issue at F/1.4 but much better at F/2. Overall I am very happy with this lens.

                    A well built lens, but image quality was pretty poor on full frame. All 3 copies I tried (2 Rokinons, 1 Bower) exhibited severe de-centering and therefore one side of the image was blurry. Also, reviews I read claiming this lens exhibits no coma were just plain wrong. I'm really disappointed, as this would have been the bargain of the year if it had good image quality.
