Blending a favored wide-angle focal length with a bright maximum aperture, the EF 24mm f/1.4L II USM is a Canon L-series lens characterized by a robust physical construction and sophisticated optical design. Two ultra-low dispersion elements help to control chromatic aberrations and color fringing while a pair of aspherical elements reduce spherical aberrations and distortion for high sharpness and clarity. Individual elements also feature a Sub Wavelength Coating to suppress lens flare and ghosting for improved contrast and color neutrality in a variety of lighting conditions. Besides the optical attributes, this lens is also distinguished by its fast f/1.4 maximum aperture to benefit working in low-light conditions for controlling depth of field. Additionally, this lens sports a ring-type USM for quick and quiet autofocus performance and full-time manual focus override, and an internal floating focus mechanism also helps to maintain consistent image quality throughout the entire focusing range.

Two ultra-low dispersion (UD) elements are used to reduce chromatic aberrations and color fringing for improved clarity and color accuracy.
Two aspherical elements minimize spherical aberrations and distortions for improved sharpness and accurate rendering.
A Sub Wavelength Coating has been applied to individual elements to control lens flare and ghosting for greater contrast and color fidelity when working in strong lighting conditions.
A ring-type Ultrasonic Motor (USM) is employed to deliver fast, precise, and quiet autofocus performance as well as full-time manual focus override.
Floating internal focusing mechanism helps to maintain consistent image quality throughout the focusing range, from 9.8" to infinity.
Rounded eight-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing out of focus quality that benefits the use of shallow depth of field techniques.
As a member of the esteemed L-series, this lens is sealed against dust and moisture for working in inclement environmental conditions.

Auto Focus Flop

I bought 2 copies and both have auto-focus problems. My other L lenses have zero problems. The 24mm lens is definitely disappointing.

AMAZING!

I got this as a hand-me-down from my buddy who just upgraded all his equipment. This lens is over 8 years, FOCUS is incredible, SHARPNESS is amazing, Super recommend this lens. Using it on a Canon R & R3.

Theres a magical creamy quality to this lens that I can not get on my other Canon lenses. The wide angle forces you to study your frame and work a bit harder, the results are stunning. My favorite lens for shooting humans and landscapes. A must own.

Great lens once you 'get to know it'. I first photographed rolling hills (without having something in the foreground) and they looked like they were miles away. The photos are clean, clear and great looking once you have a something in the foreground and distance.

Amazing unique lens

Shooting a wide angle lens at a wide aperture gives you a very unique look. The image quality on this lens is amazing, even wide open. I have used this lens on the 5D series and the R5 (w/adapter) and I would highly recommend it.

Exciting lens!

I've only had this lens for a short amount of time and have yet been able to challenge it as I want. Soon I will be going to Costa Rica- this is why I purchased it. So, I'll be back in touch with a better review and photos!
