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.

Wide-angle prime 24mm f/1.4 lens is designed for use with full-frame Canon EF-mount DSLRs, however can also be used with APS-C models where it will provide a 38.4mm equivalent focal length.
Fast f/1.4 maximum aperture greatly benefits working in low-light conditions and also affords increased control over depth of field.
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.

can we used this lens in Sony A7R3
Asked by: Saurav
The Canon EF 24mm f/1.4L II USM Lens is designed for use on the Canon EF lens mount, while the Sony Alpha a7RIII Mirrorless Digital Camera uses the smaller Sony E-mount lens mount. As such, you need a lens adapter to connect the above lens to your camera. If you purchase either the Metabones Canon EF/EF-S Lens to Sony E Mount T Smart Adapter (Fifth Generation), B&H # MEMBEFEBT5, or the Vello Canon EF/EF-S Lens to Sony E-Mount Camera Auto Lens Adapter, B&H # VELAESECEF, you may use the Canon EF 24mm f/1.4L II USM Lens, B&H # CA2414L2EF, on the Sony Alpha a7RIII Mirrorless Digital Camera.

question

is this lens ideal for astrophotography? mainly milky way photographs.
Asked by: Alexis M.
I purchased this lens primarily for Milky Way and other night sky photos. As another person indicated in their answer, there seems to be no problem with vignetting or chromatic aberration. However the coma is bad, even when stopping down 2 full stops. That surprised me since I have a cheap Rokinon 14 mm lens and get almost no coma on that even wide open at f/2.8. I kept the Canon 24 mm lens though because it is great for landscape photography.
