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.

Canon EF 24mm f/1.4L II USM Reviews
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.
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!
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.
Best lens out there.
I recently bought this lens and I'm proud to say that it has been the best decision I've made.
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.
Not for astrophotography - expected a lot more at that price
I missed other reviews of this lens before I bought it for astrophotography. That was an expensive mistake. This lens has serious coma on the sides as many others have noted. Shooting at f4 or smaller helps, but that defeats the purpose of buying a fast lens. For the price I expected much more. For other uses it seems like a good lens, but for my purpose I am looking at Samyang/Rokinon and hope I get a good copy on the first try.
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.
