Canon EF 14mm f/2.8L II USM Lens
Key Features
  • EF-Mount Lens/Full-Frame Format
  • Aperture Range: f/2.8 to f/22
  • Two UD Elements, Two Aspherical Elements
  • Super Spectra Coating
An impressive ultra wide-angle prime, the EF 14mm f/2.8L II USM is a Canon L-series lens well-suited for landscape, nature, and interior photography applications. Its relatively bright f/2.8 maximum aperture is well-suited to working in difficult lighting conditions and also makes this lens an ideal choice for astrophotography. The optical design incorporates two aspherical elements and two ultra-low dispersion elements to control both spherical and chromatic aberrations in order to realize a high degree of sharpness, clarity, and color accuracy. A Super Spectra coating has also been applied to suppress flare and ghosting for increased contrast and color fidelity when working in backlit and harsh lighting conditions. A ring-type USM and internal focusing mechanism also afford quick, quiet, and accurate autofocus performance, as well as full-time manual focus override. Additionally, this lens is weather-sealed for use in trying climates.

Has anybody used this lens for portraits of large groups of people? Are the sides distorted? The 18-135 on the Canon 80D is not wide enough for some locations, and I wonder if this would work without creating distortion.
Asked by: Larry
With this lens there is very little distortion, but in terms of using this for large group shots, this is one of the best primes lenses you could get for such shooting situations.

what is the thread size?
Asked by: Anonymous
Unfortunately, the Canon Super Wide Angle EF 14mm f/2.8L II USM Autofocus Lens does not have a front filter thread. It has a Gel filter holder at the rear of the lens.

I'm looking at this lens for Milky Way photography. How is the barrel distortion on this compared to the Rokinon 14mm f/2.8, which I have and like, except for that distortion?
Asked by: Dave
Dave, I have/had both lenses and prefer the Canon 14mm overall, although I have not specifically compared barrel distortion. Bought the Rokinon for northern lights photography in Norway and Sweden. The Rokinon distortion wasn't a problem for me as the whole NL photo scene is pretty wild as is. As you know, the Canon 14mm is big $$, so would hope it will have more use than the Milky Way. These days my kit is basically the 14mm, 24-70mm and 100-400mm, on a 1dX MII body.
